The cold weather is here! And it arrived just in time for our last Stroller Strength exercise class. It’s a good thing I finished sewing this blanket for Corinne last night. It’s a double layer of fleece with a fleece binding. I added some straps that can be used to tie it to her car seat or stroller. It worked out really well in class this morning since it was soooo windy! I didn’t have to worry about her blanket falling off. Since coats aren’t safe in the carseat this is our plan for keeping Corinne warm this winter!
Corinne and I go to an exercise class twice a week. At the first class the instructor told use to put a hat and gloves in the car for the little ones and ourselves so we’re prepared in case there’s a chilly morning. So of course I set out to make a hat and mittens for Corinne. I grabbed a pattern that my mom gave me and set about making the smallest hat on the pattern without measuring, assuming it would fit. Boy was I wrong! It was huge!!! It says it’s for infants. I don’t know where they found the infant they used for sizing. So I had to come up with a different plan.
I opted for a custom (easier) hat. The first one didn’t work out. I forgot to divide my panel length in half. But the third time was a charm!! I used scrap fabric from her Halloween costume to make this jester hat and pom poms. Isn’t she the silliest, cutest thing ever?
