Sewing clothing can be tricky, especially trying to fit on wriggly babies and children, but even the newest sewer can make a great baby hat that fits. This soft baby hat is made out of soft knit fabric and comes with a fitted top and a cuff that can be rolled up for more cuteness!
The baby hat pattern can be made with an interlock knit, jersey knit, or even rib knit (although rib knit is more stretchy so you would probably want to downsize if you picked this type of fabric).
This is the first pair of shoes Sew Modern Kids has shared with you and aren’t they adorable!
These baby and toddler shoes are really comfortable and by sewing a little elastic in the back and adding a Velcro strap this all helps to keep baby’s foot snug inside.
Featuring some of the characteristics of those cute little TOMS, yet personal to the little toes inside. You can also add a little name tag to the back which adds a beautiful touch to a simple design.
The standard baby and toddler sizes are FREE to download with instructions on how to grade the pattern up or down in size. Or if you prefer you can pay for a ready graded pattern in all available sizes.

Sew Modern Kids are very pleased to share with you a FREE pattern for a lapped front hoodie for babies 0-3 months old, from Leafy Treetop.
This really is the sweetest little sweatshirt. You will absolutely love this sweatshirt for a newborn. The lapped front, allows you to pull the sweatshirt off and on with ease. No zippers, no buttons, no snaps. Easy on, easy off, and a relatively happy baby (what baby really loves having their clothes changed).
This sweatshirt pattern is gender neutral so whether you are sewing for John or Johanna this pattern will be just what you need. The designer made a really basic sweatshirt with the materials that she had on hand, but you could really dress it up with pockets, buttons, trims, etc.
These sweatshirts are perfect for fall, winter, and spring babies. The designer says – you should do your best to try to match up those cuffs when sewing the sleeves. It looks so cute with the contrast cuffs and bottom band.
Got a new baby on the way or know someone who does? Here’s a FREE pattern for clothing for a new baby girl – just born to three months. It’s a pattern and tutorial to make a Box Pleat Baby Skirt. It’s such an easy pattern, basically rectangles that you shape with the center pleat. Little touches like the lace trim on the bottom and the ribbon bow make really nice features.
The designer had a scrap piece of corduroy sitting in her drawer for about 15 months. It is a very cute print and we can see why she chose that piece to make her lovely baby skirt.
Baby skirts are really easy to make, take up very little time, and require very small amounts of material. They are great beginner projects.
We love to find you good FREE patterns and tutorials here at Sew Modern Kids.
This one today is the Piped Pocket Skirt. This pattern, which you can download below, is for an infant skirt, and the designer has tried to size it to be about a 3-6 month size, but it could easily be adjusted to fit a larger or smaller baby by adjusting the length and the amount of elastic gather.
This skirt has real pockets, so it’s a great sewing tutorial if you’ve never sewn them before. Babies usually won’t be needing functioning pockets though, so you can sew on the decorative buttons through all layers to keep the pockets from opening and keep them neatly in place.
Here’s an absolutely beautiful addition to a baby's wardrobe – a Felted Wool Baby Jacket (0-6 months). There is just something so rewarding to sew for babies, and this pattern is no exception. It’s a lovely simple garment, not too difficult to sew, but looks really cute.
The tutorial and pattern are FREE and the project is an easy one. The shape of the jacket simple and chic with no collar or fussy sleeve seams allowed. This little kimono style jacket is warm, cute, has a simple wrap over front, and is easy to get on and off with just one big sew-on snap.
Using wool makes the garment nice and warm. And using silk-like fabric for the lining gives it a special touch. But of course, you can use whatever fabrics you like. It’s so small, that it’s ideal for using up the leftovers from other projects, perhaps something you sewed for yourself.
Here’s a quick and simple and FREE tutorial showing you how to make a pair of tights for a baby by tracing another pair.
This designer has thought of everything as she says – IF you don’t have a pair on hand to trace, then she has made a PDF baby tights pattern in size 3-6 months and 6-12 months. These baby tights can be sewn with either a serger or a regular sewing machine. Stretchy knit jersey or old t-shirts make the best materials, and you’ll also need some 3/4″ wide elastic.
The designer also advises that for baby tights, you’ll need very little fabric. An 18″ square of fabric will probably do it if you’re making tights for an infant, obviously more if your baby is larger.
Here are some wonderfully pretty bloomers for your baby where the designer has produced a digital sewing pattern that is FREE to download. You can click on the link below.
She has actually produced two versions of the silk bloomers. There is the ruched version, which gives a cute little ruffle effect at the leg cuffs and waistband. Or the plain version, which isn’t ruffled or ruched. To make the plain version, just modify the pattern a little by cutting off the flare and make the casing on the bottom edge of the shorts instead of 1/2″ up.
If you want to sew a cool sleeveless onesie then here is a great FREE sewing pattern for a six months old baby. Ideal for summer and warmer weather, this sleeveless onesie is comfy to wear and easy for the little one to crawl around in.

Parks and playgrounds are a great place for kids to play and exercise. If you have a yard or terrace, with the help of this FREE DIY Baby Swing pattern and tutorial, you can make your baby a home playground so that you don`t have to spend hours in public parks and playgrounds.
Baby swings are a fantastic piece of equipment that your child will enjoy in the safety of your own outside play area. There is no kid who doesn`t like swinging on a swing, it’s obvious to all of us, but it’s less well known that swings play a much bigger role in children’s development than ordinary climbers and slides. This is due to the rhythmic, coordinated movements that the infant will learn while they swing and enjoy the game in which they are actually learning instinctively.

Baby rattles are colorful, fun, and safe toys that have been loved for generations. Rattles have been used for this purpose since antiquity. The history of baby rattles goes back at least 2500 years. Rattles are made from wood, plastic, or fabric. Many rattles are brightly colored, have animal or flower shapes, and when shaken typically make a sound. Baby rattles are made specifically for the enjoyment of an infant, and child development experts believe that they help the infant enhance hand-eye coordination by stimulating their senses.
Modern rattles come in all sorts of shapes, but their objective is the same: entertain curious tots. Between 3 and 4 months, most infants can hold a rattle placed in their hands. They will soon discover that they were the one that made that noise when they waved that rattle!
The designer of these cute rattles has provided the pattern and tutorial for free. And this FREE plush rattle sewing pattern comes in 3 designs – a bunny, a mouse, and a cat. You can choose which one to make for your little one, or you can simply make all three of them. With three rattles included in this awesome pattern, your baby will never run out of ways to have fun.
The FREE plush rattle sewing pattern is a great project for beginners. It’s an easy and quick project to sew for babies and it can also be a great shower gift because you can never have too many of them! The ears on the rattles are great for chewing on, and they make fun sounds when you shake them, so there is no doubt that your little baby will love them.

Here’s a really cute looking Spaghetti Strap Dress, which comes with a free pattern and tutorial.
It’s really simple to make and ideal for a beginner sewer project.
When working with knits, which the designer recommends you use, she says it is important not to stretch or pull the fabric while sewing. Also, use a stretch needle and a stretch stitch. In this pattern, all seams are sewed with a twin needle.
The designer has made this pattern in a total of fourteen sizes. Sizes 6 months, 9 months, 12 months, 18 months, and 2T are free. The other nine sizes are available in the designer’s shop for purchase.
Here’s an excellent free tutorial on how to make a clip for a pacifier.
The construction is a really simple strip of fabric with a clip at one end and a string to attach to the pacifier, at the other end.
And the great thing is any type of pacifier will work with one of these clips because all you have to do is just place the loop of string through any hole or handle on your pacifier, then place the clip end through the loop, and then pull.
When planning and investigating her project the designer found some excellent colorful circular clips, which are nice and strong and which are baby-safe, for you to use when you make a clip or two of your own.
The designer says that these clips can be clipped anywhere for baby's use, like on a car seat, on a bouncer, on your diaper bag, etc.
That way instead of those pacifiers falling onto the floor etc when they fall out of those little baby's mouths those pacifiers will always stay attached and be easily accessible.

This is the newborn gown. It’s adorable and cute, and also very practical! It is created to be worn for the first three months or so, to help you ease through those middle of the night diaper changes. It is the perfect gift for new parents to be!
This pattern is intended to fit an 8 lb (or 3.6 kg) newborn, and it's been made with room that allows baby to grow. Therefore, it will likely be large on a true newborn, but a newborn grows pretty fast, so it’s better to have a little more space so the little one can wear it for the first few months of his life.

We really like everything that Ashley from Make It & Love It produces. She makes great patterns and tutorials, her step-by-step instructions are excellent and the photos that she takes are awesome.
This is her Bubble Romper for baby long pant style pattern. She designed it a while back now for one of her 1-year old kids who was spending most of her time on her knees. Making one of these long pant style Bubble Rompers meant those little knees were covered so everything was perfect.
But it will also work well and look really cute on older children. The top part of the Bubble Romper is encased elastic which means it is easy to take off and put on. The little legs are cinched in with elastic as well and the designer has added simple little bows on each shoulder.

Why not check through your old clothing stash and see what you have available. Maybe you have something available from some hand-me-downs.
Ashley has made this little romper so perfect and comfy for the most mobile of babies. She made it with plenty of room in the bodice and bum area, which allows for lots of movement to crawl about all over the place.

For her dress pattern, the designer recommends you use lightweight fabrics such as cottons, cotton blends, and linens. For a new look, she says also you might like to try knit fabrics – though knowledge of sewing with knits is recommended and not included in her pattern. And also sizing down the pattern is also recommended with knit fabric.

This is a great winter hat for your little one. It’s called the Dino Hat and the sewing tutorial is free.
Why is it called the Dino Hat? It’s obviously short for dinosaur and those pretty red triangles are just like the upright plates on a Stegosaurus.
