Little Girl's Spring Clothing Birthday Gift Set

I know it is not spring yet and winter is far from over, but I made a spring clothing for a little girl the other day. I don't have a baby girl although I wish the next one will be, but if not, then that is totally fine. I made these clothing because someone in the family is going to be one year old this spring and I wanted to make her something that is special and handmade. It may sound weird to you that it's too early to be making something for spring, but I do have my reasons. I like to make it ahead of time so that I have nothing to worry about on what to get her for her birthday because I already got it covered. Sometimes I get caught up with so many things, then I'll forget to do projects that I usually end up having to whip up something really fast at the last minute. Usually, when you are in a hurry, you tend to screw up things and it is a headache. I wanted to have plenty of time so I can come up with some really good finished product like these babies. Now that I got it all done, I don't have to worry about it anymore and I am all ready!

I love those little cute bicycle prints on the fabric and the color is perfect for a little girl's spring dress. The bottom part of the dress is from a rummage find lace blouse which I screwed up trying to alter the piece and I almost trashed it, but I hung on to it thinking I could use it for something else. I cut out a piece of that blouse and sewed it on the bottom of the dress. I added a ribbon on the side and this dress is looking so cutie! Since I only have a baby boy, I have no way of figuring out the size of a one year old baby girl and I have no pattern whatsoever, so what I did was I grabbed my little boy's one year old shirt and used that as my template.

Of course the dress won't be completed without having the little underwear/diaper cover for the baby, so I whipped up something really quick which I found a tutorial here. Here's how mine turned out. I am crossing my fingers on this one and hoping it will fit her. The only thing I did different from the tutorial is that I used the shirring method instead of just using the elastic band.

You can't go wrong if you want to add in this cute little bonnet to complete the entire outfit and to keep the baby protected from the harsh sun. Not only it protects her, but she will also look so cute in this. I still need to add a little bit of fabric flowers or rosettes though for more girly (as if the pink ribbon is not enough) details.

Lastly, I wanted to throw in one more item to the gift and I made this cute little stuffed owl. Doesn't it look hoot? I mean cute? I hope you have a wonderful, warm and safe weekend!!!
