I don’t have any grandkids yet, but do have 2 great nieces and 2 great nephews. One family came for dinner at Easter so I decided to make them something to wear.
I used patterns in the book ‘Cute Clothes for Kids’ by Rob Merrett. The fabric is actually quilting fabric which I bought at my lovely local shop The Eclectic Maker. Did I tell you this shop is fabulous and is only 5 minutes walk from my house!
Here’s the dress for the (nearly) 2 year old, plus bag made with scraps. The bag is from the book ‘20 to make, Jelly Roll Scraps’ by Carolyn Foster. My great niece really loved the bag!
Here’s the back with the super cute pockets and tabs in pink gingham
The dungarees are size 9 months so will fit great nephew in the summer/autumn. Isn’t the fabric gorgeous!! I found the light blue in my scrap bag which was just right for the pockets and tab at the back.
No new techniques for me really, but I did take the opportunity to practise my top stitching.
