Source for baby knits

Sarahbelle | Posted in Fabric and Trim on

As a soon-to-be first time grandmother (YEA!!! We are so excited!!!), I , naturally intend to sew all of Logan’s clothes.  A little ambitious, I know, but I must try.

I have all ready made many suits, overalls, rompers, shirts for him, but I am having trouble finding knit fabric of the quality I want.

I almost broke down yesterday and bought some Carter’s rompers (Macy’s had a sale), but I am determined to sew his little layette myself.  Can anyone suggest an internet source, or a retailer in/near Houston that has the fabric I seek?

      Thank you all for such great suggestions!

      I have ordered fabric from Martha Pullen, and swatch kits from SewBaby, and Sewzanne.

      My intent is for Logan to be the comfyiest and best dressed baby in Texas!   Once again, a new baby is causing me to go without sleep.  I thought this was supposed to end with menopause . . .

        I'm just a beginner sewer, but I now have three grandsons!  May I suggest bibs, bibs and more bibs.  My daughters especially like the dishtowel type.  Cut a hole for the head and add knit ribbing.  You can also sew two flannel pieces in a rectangular shape, turn and add the head space in the same way.  Our four month grandson is already teething and the bibs are really a necessity!  I have great fun using decorative stitches and embroidery on them.  It's a wonderful way for beginners like me to play and experiment, but any level sewer could have fun with them I think.

        Keep on sewing!

    These sites reference heirloom and smocking but have a large variety of quality fabric for sewing for babies and children. Just type in "cotton knit" or whatever type of knit you're looking for in the Search box.

        Sorry, I didn't see the earlier post about your swatch kit.  Good luck with the layette.
