Making some of your own presents for the holiday season can allow you to add a personal touch to your gift-giving activities this year. There are many sewing projects that take little time and can make this joyous season even more special for your friends and family members. If you have a new arrival in your family or want to make something special for friends with small children, these three projects could be the perfect options for your next sewing endeavour.


Simple patterns for onesies are a great place to start when sewing clothes for the babies in your life. Soft, durable fabrics (like fleece, jogging fleece, or flannel) that are easy to wash are the best options for these easy-to-make baby clothes. You can choose a pattern in the child’s current size or go one size up for added convenience. Don’t forget the snaps or zippers for the bottom of the garment. Start with a basic pattern and adjust it to suit your personal preferences and to accommodate the season perfectly.


One of the simplest baby items to sew is a cap or hat. During the winter months, a hat is a must-have baby accessory that will keep the little one’s head warm on outdoor excursions. In most cases, a soft knit cap can provide comfort and will be cherished by the parents of the little one for its convenience and style, which makes this handmade item a perfect gift for the holiday season.

Try using fleece, knits, ribbing, or interfaced cotton.

Rompers can have long sleeves or short sleeves and can even feature foot coverings to make them even cozier for crawling and curling up for a nap. Fleece and fluffy fabrics are often chosen for these baby clothes to provide an added level of warmth and protection against cold floors and outdoor temperatures, but you can make them fashion forward too by adding skirt details or puffed sleeves.

When choosing fabrics for these baby clothes, consider whimsical patterns and soft, cuddly knits to ensure that your gift looks and feels great. At Fabricana, we offer an extensive collection of beautiful and appropriate fabrics, sewing patterns and notions to help you make the perfect baby gifts for the holiday season or for any other gift-giving occasion. 

Try out one of these patterns to make that cozy or special occasion outfit for baby this year.
