Some time ago I started to knit and sew for the babies of my family & friends. I began with knitting socks for newborns because I think you can never have enough wool socks in every age of life 🙂
Later, I also started to sew baby pants, shirts and dresses. I prefer colourful and comfortable fabrics, that allow babies and children to move around as freely as possible while exploring the world around them.
When I went shopping I was really confused to see large stocks of pink clothes for girls with words like „little princess“ printed on them and blue ones with cars or machines for boys in many shops. Despites the fact that I see no need in stereotyping already baby boys and girls, this kind of clothing seems really boring to me. So I decided to use only gender-neutral fabrics that bring fun and diversification to the wardrobe of the little ones.
Most of the time, I just buy fabrics with colourful patterns when I see them and take them home. Then I think about what to do with them. Like that green one with lots of animals on it. It became a dress and a shirt in the end, adding a little bit of yellow to the neckline.
