gifts for triplets

After my post about gifts for twins my friend contacted me about making some gifts for triplets. She is attending a baby shower next month for her friend who is having triplets (bet you didn't see that coming :) ). I gave her some ideas for some onesies and I also mentioned that I could do the dress and tie onesie thing. She liked that idea and we ran with it. We decided to make coordinating outfits rather than completely matchy matchy. She said she would like them to be 6-9 month size which I think is a great idea. She allowed me to pick out the fabric and get to work.

I got everything started at home and then did the sewing at our churches craft night on Friday. In all it took me about three hours...and it would have gone faster had I been paying closer attention and not having to rip things apart three and four times...ugh! And if my machine was awesome it would have been better too, but my machine leaves something to be desired and I have to re-thread the thing over and over (think I'm gonna drop it at the shop next week to be looked at).

But through it all I came away with two super cute dresses and a tie onesie! I sure hope the doctors were right about the genders of those babies or someone's gonna feel weird :). Here are the outfits I made modeled by my sweet 6 month old Hannah!

I've got more of this fabric and plan on making some things for the re-launch of my etsy store!
