.Sewing for baby: Racoons and Clouds.

The baby clothes sewing addiction continues...
A pair of cute little racoon overalls with long-sleeved bodysuit for underneath.
The overalls pattern comes from Ottobre 4/2012 and is called "Snail Walk Overalls." They were a lot easier to make than I anticipated, the pattern called for sweatshirt knit for the outer but I didn't have any so used a regular jersey knit instead and they seem to have worked fine.
For the coordinating bodysuit I used the trusty "Kisuliini Raglan-Sleeve Bodysuit" from Ottobre Winter 6/2012.
And another of my favourite sets - from The Spring 1/2012 edition of Ottobre, "Little Houses Knit Pants" and "Bert Bodysuit with henley placket."
I didn't have enough of the blue/orange ribbing so used knit fabric for the feet cuffs on these pants instead of ribbing as the pattern calls for. I acuatly like the softness of using a knit and will try it again next time (yep...there will definitley be a next time!)
Eek! The cuteness is killing me! I pulled out all the little baby clothes yesterday and washed and sorted them all. The countdown is on so I better get organised!

Å, så flink du er til å sy!!! Blir inspirert!!! Har prøvd meg på nokon bodyer sølv, men syns det er vanskelig å få trykknappane til å sitte i jerseystoffet! Gode tips mottas med takk:)

Fin dag til deg!
