a matching set

One of my best friends is due to give birth to her second son any day now, so I thought it would be nice to surprise her with a handmade matching set for her boys to wear.

I used two patterns that I’m sure you’ve seen on my blog before; the bodysuit pattern from Brindille and Twig, and the Andover tee from Little Lizard King.

I still think this kind of neckline is one of the best designs for babies. The over-the-shoulder wrap is so flexible and means there isn’t any chance of the suit getting stuck over bubs head.

I picked up this adorable robot and planet printed cotton jersey from Spotlight, and I’m so glad I did, because my friend said that her eldest is robot-mad at the moment, and quickly exclaimed how much he loved his new shirt.

The dark navy accents were left over jersey from when I made 11 of these t-shirts. It’s from MaaiDesign, and is still the best quality jersey I’ve ever worked with.


I love giving handmade gifts, especially for big occasions such as the birth of a baby. I can’t wait to see the boys in their matching outfits!
