Gift for a Baby Niece

My sister-in-law had a baby girl back in July. This is what I gave her before the baby was born.

This dress is the Itty Bitty Dress from Made by Rae. I really learned a lot making it. I rarely make clothing. I'd never sewn on piping or bias tape before. I think it turned out really cute. I'll definitely be making it again.

The matching headband is crocheted using the tutorial here. I think I made the flower from that same tutorial, but I can't remember for sure.

The booties are from a pattern by Little Birdie Secrets. There were a couple of mistakes in the pattern, but I was able to make them work anyway. I ended up making 2 sets of booties since the first set didn't end up the same size.

I always enjoy making baby gifts. It's especially fun to make them for girls.
