Learn how to sew easy baby bloomers in just 5 steps. They are so easy and quick to sew that you can make them in just 30 minutes.
I love the sight of little babies wearing bubble bloomers. I feel babies would stay comfortable in them and it would look cute on little baby butts.
Puffy bubble bloomers are my favorites as they are roomy and large enough to accommodate diapers. They can be made with light-weight or medium-weight cotton fabric in varying prints and colors.
Bubble bloomers can look great with anything that the baby wears. May it be onesies, tops or anything else. They are great for summer and worn over leggings, they can be great for the colder months too.
These easy baby bloomers can be great as handmade gifts for a baby shower. You can make them with matching baby tops ( pattern coming soon) as a gift to your loved one’s baby! It is sure to become a staple in her summer closet!
