DIY Baby Jacket - The Easiest Methods, And June Goals

Living in a remote area means that you have a very small amount of choice of gift ideas to buy. Of course for the exception that you buy the gift from the online store. But, you will also need a very long time to receive the package! What if the gift is for the event that is held in the next day? Oh, that will be too late.

DIY baby jacket, the easiest method you can sew by yourself

I am very grateful to have the ability to sew or create the thing that is worthy of a gift. If my neighbors inviting me to their events I will immediately make the gifts for them. It just happened when our neighbor invited us to her baby shower event. Baby shower! All the neighborhood bought a gift for the baby and pregnant mom from the local shops and the gift will be similar to each other because the local stores in our remote area don't have a lot of baby gift items as in the city. I want to give a unique gift for the baby. So, after looking for some ideas, I decided to make a baby jacket! And because the time was urgent, I need to create a simple and easy but nice look baby jacket.
The baby jacket might be simple, but with the selection of the fabric, a simple baby jacket can be looked very cute. In this situation, I am very proud of my hobby of collecting various kinds of fabrics, lol! It seemed like an expensive hobby, but can be so useful in the future. OK, in this post I give you step-by-step how to make the baby jacket that you can give as a gift or for your baby.
