I could merely have taken in the sides enough to make it fit now, but that would be no fun. So I decided to challenge myself with baby clothes.
This is my workspace at 1am. Since I can't sleep. Typically, I put Benji down for bed, but wait a while before I lay down because he often wakes up after half-hour. So, I grab all the things I want to do, throw them in a basket and lay it all out in front of me while the TV and laptop serve as lighting.First project: a baby beanie. I used one I had to figure out the size.
there you have it! If you use a piece of clothing as a pattern template, you're probably cutting right around the article which already leaves seam allowance.
As for the beanie, I wanted to add a little something so I sewed some strips together to make a poof. The result looks a little blah, but I hope the pieces curl up after a wash.
