As I was going through my reader yesterday morning, I came across an adorable new pattern! It is by the oh, so fabulous Florence from Flossie Teacakes. If you haven't visited Florence's blog, you MUST!!! It is so beautiful and her sewing skills are astonishing!
Anyway, I immediately bought the pattern and got started! Adelaide has been begging me to make her something with the "yellow Snow White favric." I still plan on making her some article of clothing with it as well but this little project was calling for some special fabric too!
You see that scary, kind of pitiful baby doll in the sleeping bag? That's "baby!" Baby is VERY important in our family!!! She was hand sewn, with love, by my grandmother, Nana, almost 70 years ago. She was made for my mother. My mom found her right after Adelaide was born and brought her to us. Addie was just an infant but just clung on to baby, so, baby became Adelaide's. She goes everywhere!!! I mean, EVERYWHERE with Addie! So it only seemed fitting that baby should have a very special bed! :)
The three bears' sleeping bag pattern, as it is called, comes in three sizes. I made the mummy bear size. It has a little pillow so that baby can be comfy when she is napping.
The top of the sleeping bag is quilted. I couldn't bear to quilt though that beautiful snow white and so I carefully quilted around the outline of the images of the characters and the trees. It really is a great print, so much detail!!
The little men are working on the back! :) I used the floral from the line for the bias binding and the clothesline for the pillow. I hope baby, and Adelaide, will really enjoy sleeping in her sleeping bag!! :)
