ScrapHappy # March 2019

I missed out on the ScrapHappy fun in February because of other things going on.  February saw the husband & myself redecorating the living room (all done).  Me with big plans of making sofa covers (started well, but I ran out of motivation) . . . and then catching up on housework before visitors in March.  Lindashee & Mr Lindashee flew over from England for a few days, and Eldest son & girlfriend drove up from the south of France.

House suddenly emptied on 11th, so after a day of stripping beds, and catching up with more housework, my thoughts turned to ScrapHappy and my sewing machine.

I originally sat down, with leftover fabrics (from 2 pairs of shortie PJs made in November) to make something summery for Baby Viking using pattern NewLook 6970.  Baby Viking will be 1 year old in August, and since babies always seem to be wearing the next size up, I decided to cut fabric for the 18-24 month size.  As it turns out, this pattern seems to size up very large . . . and I ended up with a little pinafore dress that fits Daisy, who is a 2-3 year size.

Not to worry . . . anyway, I’m linking up with Kate and Gun for our monthly ScrapHappy post.

The idea was to make something with scraps/leftovers.  I achieved that.  And got more sewing practice along the way.

It’s a good fit on the shoulders for Daisy, and looks lovely with the little bolero cardie I knitted for her.  I haven’t given up on the idea of making this pattern again, for Baby Viking, but one size smaller and not necessarily with scraps.

  1. I thought you’d been quiet – now I know why, you had a house full.
    The dress is so sweet. I suppose you expect us to believe you that you accidentally made it to fit dolly Daisy instead of Baby Viking 🙄

    • nah, I think Daisy will get to keep this one, even when Baby Viking is old enough to grow into it. Whole point in getting a giant doll, was to have a “dummy” to try out clothes making for kids (at least that’s the excuse I gave the husband).

    • lol the doll was my xmas present, and simply because I’ve suddenly become mad about dolls . . . but the excuse when buying was, that she will encourage me to craft and experiment. So much quicker to make things in toddler size than adult sie.
