Owls On the Line Fleece hoody

This hoody was part of a custom collab set on BBM with Lisa from The Nappy Garden.
The customer choose everything about it, the fleece colour, applique fabric and the size.

It's taken me far longer to finish than I would have liked as firstly I think I poisoned myself with raw chicken! Resulting in me not starting on it for a couple of days and then just when it was all done I managed to burn the pocket slightly with the iron-GRRRRR! So have spent today remaking a new pocket and sewing it on.

But it's finally done and ready to send to Lisa tomorrow so she can match the colours from it to dye the yarn to match.

note: the blue fleece in the bottom photo is not true to life, but the colours in the fabric are spot on.

Tiger Hoody

We've been getting quite a bit of use out of the penguin fleece hoody I made Freddie the other week that I have been meaning to make him another, especially whilst the weather is freezing.

So here's the finished item.


Had fun and games with it though as I made it too small in the body and it only just fitted so I decided to ensure he gets more wear out of it I'd add stretchy panels into the sides which has really changed the dynamic of it and contrasts perfectly with the tiger applique.

And here it is plain before I added the pocket and tiger applique.


Boat Top

I got really bored of one of Freddie's plain blue tops so brightened it up with a boat applique.

Fleece Hat Take 2!

Well yesterday's hat was titchy tiny when I put (or tired) it on Freddie's head. It would probably be more suited to a 3-6 month old-oops!

So I tried again today, slightly different style with ear flaps, and after measuring his head so I could be sure it would actually fit.

Fleece Hat

Just made a fleece hat for Freddie, just need him to wake up now from his nap so I can make sure it fits and decide if it needs some kind of embellishment.

New Fleece Hoodies

Whilst Freddie had a super long nap yesterday afternoon I was feeling creative and decided to make a fleece for him. The top is completely hand made and I'm so happy with it, The hood took a bit of effort though and turned out a really bizarre shape on the first attempt. Managed to rectify that though.



Then came the embellishment part, I decided to try reverse applique, where the fabric is sewn onto the back and the front is cut to show the fabric through. I love the result, I also love the penguin shape.


Freddie loves it too, he cried when I took it off him the first time when I was just checking the sleeve length!

Here's some pic of him modeling my newest creation :)


Baby Iced Giraffes

This little top is for a collab with TNG and Lush Tush, with woolies and a tiny newborn nappy. I think it's just adorable and think I'm going to get something similar (or the same) made for my new little baby nearer the time too.
