Sewing for Sweet Little Demons

It’s been a few weeks since my last post. A lot has happened. I became a Grim-maw! Little Miss K was born March 30th. An amazing experience for us all.

So since it’s baby time at my house of evil. I had to make some baby stuff. Goth style.

I saw some of these items on Pinterest. Each one had several different versions and tutorials. I did not really care for any of them. The designs were simple so I made up my own patterns.

The first thing I made was burp cloths. A burp cloth is a simple design, it is something you throw over your shoulder when you burp the baby, it will catch any spit up. Very simple project. Great for anyone just getting into sewing. You need 2 fabrics cut 9×19 inches. One fabric is your design piece so any lightweight cotton fabric will work. The other fabric should be an absorbent material. I used terry cloth for some burp cloths and cloth diapers for the others.

Lay out your two pieces right sides (printed sides) facing in. Pin together. Sew around leaving a 4 to 6 inch area not sewn. Turn right side out and iron. I used a zigzag stitch to sew around burp cloth. Done.

 burpNext project was a bib. I made two styles. Your basic and a bandana bib. You can find the patterns on Pinterest. They’re many to chose from. This is another beginner project. Cut out pieces, sew right sides together leaving a gap open to turn right side out. Iron than zigzag stitch around. I did not zigzag stitch around neck area, well I did the first one and to me it felt like it would be irritating to a newborn neck. Sew on some Velcro for closures and you are done.

Third project was a bit more involved but still somewhat easy. I call it a diaper change station. It’s for on the go diaper changing, gives you a clean area to change your baby/evil spawn/mini me or whatever you call your offspring. Here is a picture of it completed. I will give more detailed instructions a few blogs down the road.

I am in the process of making a baby kimono shirt with skulls! Pictures coming soon.

Speaking of babies. Saw this on Pinterest before Halloween and made this for a co-workers Halloween costume. Many people loved it but others said we went to far. Can you really go to far with Halloween? I don’t think so. On Pinterest there was only a picture with no link to instructions so I had to figure it out myself. Surprisingly it turned out right the first time. No magic or virgin sacrifice needed. Disappointing I know. I would have done it if need be though.
