I recently was given a sewing machine by my sister in law. I had never used one so I am literally teaching myself. I went onto Youtube (best place ever for help!) and learned how to thread my machine. Then I started making burp cloths and small things like that. I really caught on quickly. I do use Etsy.com for ideas but if you want to learn how to do a onesie dress, just google it. There were so many methods out there I just took what I could from them and did my own thing. I couldnt figure out how to reattach the bottom of the onesie (most ppl cut it off and reattach) so I just made an elastic band and now its bottoms. The pleated neckline was actually made to be a ruffle on the babys bottom but it got too complicated and actually fit perfectly up there so I attached it. Still learning but having fun. If you are interested in making something just google it. SO many ppl have tutorials that are great! Cant wait to see what you guys are making. Be sure to share pics
Wow, that's lovely! Especially as you're teaching yourself. I made a burp cloth and bib set for a friend's newborn last year (but haven't got any pics) - the tutorial for those was also on Prudent Baby (love that site). For our little man, I'm planning on making a couple of burp cloths, a wipe-clean playmat to keep at both his grandparents' houses, and some bunting for his nursery with his name on. But all I've done so far is choose the fabric, so pics are a long way off!
