    Beautiful Little pattern

    Love this pattern. It's so versatile and quick to sew up. Such a variety of choices to make it different every time you sew it. I LOVE using this for little gifts for friends who have just had babies!

    Easy peasy

    Easy to follow with detailed instructions. I made the 3 year old size for my granddaughter in red fleece. Had a little difficulty when completing the side seams. The next one will be better.

    Suggested fabrics

    Exterior:  I like to use vintage woolen blankets, but you can use any warm fabric such as wool, wool blends, corduroy or velvet.  Fleece and WindPro are also suitable fabrics.  You could also use quilting cottons for a spring weight vest.
    Lining: Cotton, linen, flannel or other soft breathable fabric.


    Fabric requirements

    You will need the amounts listed in the charts below for both lining and exterior fabrics (44 inches/115cm wide).
