Handmade Kids Clever People Challenge
So back in August I was selected to take part in the Handmade Kids Clever People Challenge, and I received a bag of goodies to do with whatever I pleased. I got a remnant of white Minkee, A FQ of Michael Miller's Lively Letters, 3 pieces of ribbon and 2 buttons. I had an idea in my head for a little while and then the night that I started making it I totally changed my mind. So this is what I came up with... It is a Newborn Set comprising a totally cute pair of Ruffle Pants (courtesy of a Bettsy Kingston pattern), a matching singlet and a taggie mini blanket toy. I think it has turned out well and I can't wait to make more of the pants - might be onto a winner there, so expect to see a few more popping up here and there, would be good to have an overlocker though, oh well one day. Of course I had to get my little model to take everything for a test run so that I knew what it all looked like, and I think it looked pretty darn cute! Don't you agree... this girl deserves some ruffle pants of her own!
