.Summer Carnival.

I have a brand new pattern to share with you today! One for the babies...
Being sun-safe is especially important for baby's sensitive skin. The Summer Carnival sun-hat is an essential baby wardrobe item - make sure you pop it on before heading out to the beach, pool or park this Summer to keep your baby cool and give you peace of mind.
                  
                        
Featuring a wide, floppy brim and essential chin-ties, your baby will be the cutest thing around!
Matching bloomers makes an adorable way to dress up any outfit, and with loads of room for the nappy they are super comfortable to wear. You can easily make this entire set boy-friendly by leaving off all the frills and ruffles.   
 
I'm in baby-sewing mode lately! Although I have a couple of other hat sewing patterns, I felt that I needed one that was geared explicitly toward babies. Baby hats need to provide great shade, fit snugly on the head and (most importantly) be impossible to pull off! And try as she might, my adorable niece Nancy couldn't get the thing off her head!

With the addition of some fun and easy to sew baby bloomers to cover the nappy, Summer Carnival makes a great baby shower or first birthday gift. And if you don't have little girls to sew for, never fear! This set looks just as gorgeous sewn up for a boy without any frills or ruffles, I'll share that variation with you later in the week to avoid photo overload here!
Summer Carnival fits sizes newborn to 24 months, all sizes are in the one pattern. You'll find more information about Summer Carnival on the Make It Perfect website. If you are looking for a place to purchase a copy of the pattern for yourself, take a look at our stockist or ask your favourite store to order one in for you.
We can't have a new pattern without a giveaway...to win a copy of Summer Carnival, simply leave a comment on this blog post!

I'm having my first baby in nine weeks. Eep! We don't know what it is so I haven't sewn much for it. Because this is both boy and girl friendly it would make a perfect addition to my tiny stash of neutral patterns.

I tried to make a pair, what a disaster they where. Your pattern looks so great, the frill's look FANTASTIC.
