So I decorated the garden with colorful balloons, baked cookies, and my friends brought over other foods to share.
As for the gift, I made some baby clothes, using polka dot double gaze fabric in different colors. I bought the fabric at Yuzawaya.
The pattern I used was from a website, called handmadenokokoro. The website is in Japanese. Pattern can be downloaded from here. Just like BurdaStyle patterns, this pattern can be printed out in A4 copy papers and glue them together.
The pattern has only one part, and is extremely easy! You only need some bias strips other than the body part.
Since I'm used to making adult's clothes, the baby clothes seemed super small! so tiny and cute.
This website is great! They offer a bunch of patterns for baby and kids clothes, all for free!
Since the Japanese patterns do not include seam allowance, I cut out the pattern with seam allowance including.
