DIY Baby Jacket - The Easiest Methods

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 on 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 looking 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.

When we moved to this remote area, one thing that I remember to bring is my sewing machine! I know I'll need my sewing machine for any purposes. My machine is so hard to bring, and when we moved, I decided to bring the machine by myself to minimize the risk of the machine is broke. But thank God that didn't happen, so I can keep sewing with my sewing machine.

This is a very nice and timely project that I'll pass on to my niece who just had another baby a couple days ago.

This is very interesting! I would love to be able to make my son a jacket, but I know I would probably fail miserably. I like that you even put up instructions on how to sew and what not! Perhaps I'll give this a try ans see how it goes, thanks for sharing!
