And since many baby clothes are made from knit fabrics, here are a few tips for working with knits:

Sometimes a knit fabric will have a subtle nap to it (where the pile of the fabric runs in one direction). Therefore, when laying your pattern pieces onto your fabric, you may want to lay them all out in the same direction so that the nap will run in the same direction on your finished garment.

And use a ballpoint needle in your sewing machine, which will pass between the fibers of your knit fabric instead of piercing them. And when sewing your seams, be sure to use a special stretch stitch (if your sewing machine has this stitch) or a tiny zigzag stitch so that the seams of your garment will stretch when worn. And if you experience your sewing machine needle pushing your knit fabric down into your needle plate hole as you sew, try placing paper underneath your fabric. Stitch through both the fabric and the paper, then tear the paper away from the stitching when finished. (You may want to test this method on a scrap of your fabric first to make sure the paper tears away completely.)
