**Just so you don’t think I’m some sort of Supermom, most of the projects I’m posting in the next few weeks were made before I had Ava. Just wanted to clear that up. We have lots of junk all over our floors and laundry to be folded over here. (and a baby to be snuggled so it’s not all bad!) Not much sewing going on! 😉
I got my hands on a copy of the Oliver + S Little Things to Sew book book last month, and since I mainly bought it to make the doll/bear carrier, I had one whipped up within 24 hours of it arriving.
Excited much? I just knew that Miss C would LOVE this. (I was right…more on that later) Flipping through the book, I found many more projects that I can’t wait to try!
It was a really quick sew, and so fun to make! I’ll admit, I like having more pictures than the book has (I’m very visual, hence my millions of pics in my tutorials), but reading through the instructions twice was plenty.
The sizing is perfect for my little gal, and she absolutely FLIPPED out when I put it on her. Then proceeded to wear it the rest of the day and threw a mini fit when we had to take it off for lunch. She loves her babies (especially “baby ‘Rora”) so she’s in love with being little miss mommy.
Plus that pocket is the perfect size for Squinkies! The pocket fabric is leftover from the nursery, strap fabric is from LOoong ago (aka no clue where from or what line), and those adorable handmade yellow buttons are from my sponsor Button Mad!
Now onto Sadie’s, cause you know she requested one about 1 second after seeing Charlotte’s!
She pretty much breathed down my neck until I finished it, lol. She really enjoys being a part of picking out the fabric (with minimal guidance from me, of course), and I love how it coordinates with Charlotte’s.
Safe to say she also loves it! The pocket fabric is also leftover from the nursery, and the strap fabric is from my sponsor, Lily Bella Fabrics.
