Some Bicycle Sewing

Over the summer, I found some fun bicycle fabrics that I knew I wanted to use to make a gift for my good friend who was getting ready for her third baby to join their family. She has two older children that I wanted to make something special for as well. While we were home in the Seattle area in July, I found the Cycles of Life line of fabrics at my favorite little shop in Bothell.


In the end, I made a quilt for the baby, a shirt for big brother, and a dress for big sister. This was the first time I've made a button (or in my case, snap) down shirt with a collar, and I'm thankful it turned out well enough to gift! I found this tutorial by Nicole at Five and Counting to be a huge help!
