The Baby Sweater

I guess you'll read quite a lot of baby related stuff here on my blog from now on. I have a week left of work before my mother leave and after that I suppose most of my thoughts will be about baby stuff. I am really looking forward to the mother leave, preparing for another member of the family and just taking it easy.

I have started something new even though I am soon off for a break; I am attending a baby clothing sewing course! And I enjoy it very much; many inspiring mother making things for their kids, many of them refashioning stuff (me likes!) and all of them are experienced in the child department, so I can learn a lot.

Enough of the blabbering, this is what I am making right now; refashioning a knitted cotton cardigan (got it from my mother in law and she had thrifted it years ago) into a baby hoodie.(It was my first time last Wednesday to use an overlock machine, a very good invention!)

Just so I remember how to wash the hoodie!

This is the almost finished project, still needs waistbands and bands for the sleeves and hood. The little picture is from the book I am taking inspiration from.

Very comfortable looking pattern and a sweet way of recycling! Overlocking machine is just great when you make T-shirts and anything elastic.
