Description

Toddler winter outfit consisting of mittens, bonnet and scarf. The size is approx 18 months, even if I’m not perfectly sure of it… I took the measurements by eye looking at my friend’s children (I made two similar outfits as presents for them).

The fabric is a VERY soft fleece (I just fell in love with it the first time I touched it!!!) in light blue with yellow, pink and green checks. The outfit is for a girl, but I don’t like all-pink-for-girls outfits! I planned to use yellow jersey for the details, but the only one I found was not very soft, so I decided to use a green jersey, perfectly matching with the fleece checks.

The bonnet is a rectangle completely lined in jersey, with two gathered corners to create small ears on the top! Aren’t they cute??? ;)

The mittens are refined on the bottom border with the jersey and have a soft elastic band to hold them in place (I hope the size is right…..). On each one I put a button matching with the jersey that can be used to secure the mittens at a long light-green string to avoid loosing the mittens.

The scarf is a simple rectangle refined on the borders with the jersey. Since the fleece is quite tick and slippery I was not able to sew it with my sewing machine… I had to hand-sew it! Luckily I was at home one week due to back-ache so I had time enough for it, otherwise it would never be ready for Christmas!
On one side there is a small flower in contrasting fabric and a button matching with the ones on the mittens. On the other side there is my label “RobyGiup handmade”!

    This is really cute and I would imagine it would be lovely and warm…..I have two machine feet which are great for sewing fabrics like this,one has a roller feed enabling fabric which would normally not feed easily or neatly to pass under and be sewn…I also release the pressure on the foot…and one is made of silicone, so it glides over rather than sticks to some fabrics..I am not 100% sure but you should be able to get these to fit most makes of machines! x

      They would be very helpful! I only have a very simple sewing machine, not possible even to release the pressure on the foot… :(
      But I’m planning to buy a new one more professional!!! And I will have a look at the machine feets you talked about.
      Thanks for the hints! :)
