4 Free Baby Pants Sewing Patterns -Tested!

4 Free Baby Pants Sewing Patterns, all sewn up and tested on Swoodsonsays.com

Baby clothes are SO much fun to sew and there are so many options, it can get overwhelming. I decided to try out four of the free PDF baby pants sewing patterns that are popular on my Pinterest boards – and share the results with you! Free patterns are great, but I’m still hesitant to invest time and fabric if something is going to be a dud. Good news is, I liked all four of these patterns (although I have a favorite) and have lots more details to share with you about each one.

I partnered with Mabel Madison for the post; they are one of my favorite fabric stores because they stock unique, Euro prints that are such high quality. Their selection of “boy-friendly” fabrics is awesome, with loads of knits. They ship super fast and are very responsive – I had a great experience shopping with them before I asked them to work with me on this experiment!

Free Pumpkin Silhouette Applique Pattern & Tutorial

Free Pumpkin Applique

I originally shared this free pumpkin applique post last Fall at GYCT Designs and now I’m bringing it back here to share with you! Applique is my favorite, it’s an easy way to use up scraps and personalize patterns. In this case, it also helps reinforces pant knees! My son has been obsessed with pumpkins for a long time, so he was very excited to have pumpkins on his pants. If you’ve never used Wonder Under, I have a quick tutorial on that too – it makes things so easy.

Suddenly you’re scrolling through Instagram (I’m @swoodsonsays!) and an hour has passed. You felt creative, because you were looking at beautiful images, fabric, sewing inspiration. But nothing was actually sewn! And the baby’s awake! Or dinner is ready! There’s always something.

How to Make a Rainbow Baby Toy

DIY Rainbow Baby Rattle - Free Sewing Pattern

Spring has brought beautiful weather and I have rainbows on the brain! This is a free pattern for a rainbow baby rattle; it’s so simple to make but looks bright and fun. Handmade toys and softies are my favorite! I have four toy sewing patterns (two of them are free!) in my shop as well as several free tutorials.

This is a gift and I embroidered the baby’s name on the back for an extra personalized touch – my son was so disappointed this colorful noisemaker wasn’t for him. My baby is only 9 weeks old, so she was obliging to sit for modeled photos but can’t really pick things up yet. She definitely wanted to though!
