Baby in the Hood Jacket

I guess I really do love the Baby in the Hood Jacket even though as I'm making them I grumble quite a lot. Since this is a gift I was grumbling even more because I wanted it to turn out really nice and it was giving me all kinds of grief. It's one of those designs that you need to cut really exact and you need to make each seam very even or things don't line up. 




It's for a late baby gift for a now 6 month old little girl. I made the jacket in a size 9-12 months. I added a hand stamped label to the jacket to personalize it for baby Sierra. It's just a piece of lightweight linen that I top sitched and pinked the edges. The stamp is an alphabet stamper I have and a little floral twiggy thing. I heat set the ink with an iron. Hope it lasts through the wash. I think it should.




I had hoped to make a pair of Rae's Big Butt Pants but I didn't have enough fabric. Instead I found an adorable baby bootie pattern on Etsy (check out the "boot" bootie on this site. Love it). 



Unfortunately I don't like how it turned out and I guess I need to make a few to get the hang of it before these are given to other people. I had cut out a pair in this denim for Vinny which I should have made first to get the kinks out.

Oh, and I bought the fabric at Hawthorne Threads. Love them.

Oh my gosh the jacket is so sweet. I made one for my little bubba (http://lieseandalyssa.blogspot.com.au/2012/05/baby-in-hood-jacket.html) but now I have seen yours I want to make another one with fabric similar to this. The matching shoes are adorable.
