Sparta, New Jers...
I made this crazy quilt, hooded baby jacket with blue toned baby prints.
The 100% cotton fabric and flanel lining were prewashed prior to sewing, to prevent uneven shrinkage. This garment was designed with raw edges and is meant to fray. It can also be lined with minkee fabric for added softness.
I cut small, square shapes of different vintage looking baby prints, layered and pinned them to peices of flannel that were cut to the shape of the pattern pieces. Then I sewed them every 1/2 in on the diagonal. After securing all the patches, I trimed off the excess fabric. Then just sew the jacket together with the lining, add some top stitching and embelishments, and your done.
