Patchwork baby sleep sack

Adorable patchwork sleepsack | andreasnotebook.com

Sewing a present for a mom-to-be before knowing if the baby is a boy or a girl can be difficult! I was so conflicted last week when I had a baby shower to attend. Should I make some baby sleep dresses? A blanket? I couldn’t decide and I was uninspired. Then I remembered this pattern so I made a soft little sleep sack. The pattern was from Handmade Beginnings by Anna Maria Horner and went together easily. It could be made with a solid panel in front, color blocked, patchwork or anything you want really. 

I used aqua, green and red to make it neutral. It is lined with flannel and closes with velcro. For colder climates just line with fleece. I used store bought bias tape for the binding but I imagine it would be even cuter if you made your own binding.

It made me wish I had made a bunch of these for my babies! Too late for me but I’ll be making more as gifts in the future for sure! 

Incidentally, I’ve now made 5 projects from Handmade Beginnings and I highly recommend the book if you are wanting to sew for baby.
