Winter has finally arrived, and one of our top priorities is making sure our babies will stay warm and cozy. The chilly weather can make them irritable and uncomfortable, and even worse, children under the age of two are prone to hypothermia and frostbite. Regardless of what other people say, it’s still okay to take your babies out as long us they are wearing the right clothes. This winter, I’d like to share with you a list of baby winter clothes we can sew for our babies, or as gifts to our friend with young children!
Cute Baby Winter Clothes Moms Can Sew These Chilly Days
When the weather gets colder, I know exactly what sewing project I am going to make. I have several friends who have, and soon to have babies at home, and I was looking for a unique gift for a baby shower. These DIY baby clothes I have collected are the perfect tailored gift to make for the little angels. Unlike store-bought clothes that are extremely expensive and hard to fit, making DIY baby winter clothes come out a lot cheaper and more convenient. Plus, I get to select the best fabric to use that will assure their baby’s comfort. So, let’s check the list below of the DIY baby clothes to make.
1. Footed Baby Pants
If you hate putting socks on a wriggly baby like most mommies, then you’ll love these footed baby pants. These footie pants are is really comfy and will keep your baby’s feet nice and warm. This pattern is sized for newborns, however, you can still adjust the size according to your baby’s measurement.
2. Newborn Baby Onesie
Baby onesies don’t need to be plain or boring; you can make baby clothes that have cute designs, bright colors, and different styles! These long-sleeved onesies are great for cold weather, too. It fits perfectly over a diaper, and the bottom is easy to access for quick diaper changes.

4. Baby Pajama Pants
These baby pajama pants can be a great present for the newest member of the family. The tutorial is best for beginners, it is easy and quick! Even baby PJ’s can be expensive, so sewing your own pair or two is definitely a cost-effective solution.
5. Mini Leg Warmers
Once your little one starts to crawl, they will need a leg warmer to protect their knees from scraping against sharp edges or surfaces. If they are wearing just a onesie, they will need this to keep their legs warm. Also, this mini leg warmer makes a great gender-neutral gift for baby shower or birthday.
Your baby will surely need a cape when you go outdoors this winter. It is absolutely freezing and your little peanut will need to have extra layers to protect them from getting cold. Winter doesn’t have to be boring for our little kiddos, they need to have a little fun with the snow.
7. Baby Mittens
Baby mittens are used to avoid your baby from getting scratching himself and to keep their hands warm, too. Sewing baby mittens are very easy. In fact, I have made several of these for my friend’s babies. This tutorial for baby mittens has stretchy cuffs that are tight enough (but not too tight) to keep them on baby’s hands.
8. Upcycled Sweater Baby Cocoon
Upcycling clothes is super fun. You’ll get to reuse old clothes from your closet and turn them into something new and useful. This design will turn your old sweater into a soft, cozy, and secure baby cocoon. The tutorial here is very quick and so simple to follow.
9. Tiny Harem Pants
If you’re finding it hard to look for newborn pants, then, it’s time to dust off your sewing machine and make these tiny harem pants for your baby. The pattern is for 0-3 months, but you can easily size it up according to your baby’s age.
10. Teddy Bear Overall
When it’s chilly outside it doesn’t mean you have to forego your daily walk to the park. Let them have some fun and fresh air while still staying warm by letting them wear an overall suit. This teddy bear overall pattern can be a bit intimidating, but the result will make your baby look so adorable!
11. Baby Boy Romper
Baby rompers are comfy, that’s why many mommies always dress their kiddos up in one of these. There are sleeveless, short sleeved, and long sleeved rompers, but in this tutorial, you will make a long sleeved romper, which is great for winter. The pattern is very easy, and you can also use your old clothes instead of buying new fabric.
