So this weekend it seemed like everybody and their momma was doing something on 8/26! Well although I got invited to about five different events, and got asked to babysit, I HAD to attend baby Jaya Rue’s baby shower! My bestie Johora has a son, MJ, and now baby Jaya is on the way! I am super excited to meet her and for now, I decided I should make sure she is ready to be just as stylish as me!
I used Mimi G’s paper bag drop crotch pants tutorial and altered it for a mini version and that is how I made these adorable baby pants. The skirt was just a simple rectangle piece of fabric with one seam and an elastic waistband. As for the onesies, I bought them at Hobby Lobby and added iron on letters that can be found here. I purchased both fabrics from Etsy: the blue one here and I am still searching for the pink one! Both these fabrics were ordered for customers and I had leftovers so I put them to good use because a little can go a long way…when we are talking about baby clothes!
Let’s talk about these MOCCASINS though! A friend of mine shared this pattern after I told her how badly I wanted to make Baby Jaya some tiny moccasins. You can find the pattern at Peek-A-Boo pattern shop for just $5! You are welcome! They were super easy to make you just need some patience to work with the small pieces. I used binder clips to hold the pieces together because I did not want holes to be left in my leather. Oh yes! I almost forgot to mention that this leather was a purchase I made in LA during my first time at the Mimi G Conference. It was a very small scrap that I did not think would turn into baby mocassins but it was actually more than enough!
Now that you got all the deets…enjoy some pics I snapped before giving Jaya’s momma her new stylish outfits!
Stay Stylish and Classy… until next time!
