Yes, it is February 1st but it feels more like April 1st! BK wanted to go to the beach but instead I made her pose for pictures of the Little Things to Sew Bear Carrier that is destined to be one of MG's birthday presents in March.
I had plans to sew this up eventually but wasn't planning on tackling it in January even though it was the project of the month in A Little Gray's LTTS Sewalong. But then I looked at the fabric requirements and realized I could use up some of my larger scraps. The stripe fabric is a home decor weight that I used for my everything tote and the dots are left over from MG's Family Reunion dress.
Buttercup the Webkinz Chihuahua fits in the carrier. Though I do think one of his companions with longer legs might fit a little better.
The straps criss cross nicely in the back so that the carrier stays secure.
A larger doll (or animal) fits even better. This baby is 18" tall. There are two sets of buttons to adjust the height depending on who is riding in the carrier. On this one, I put 3 different patches of velcro so that the width could be adjusted.
I think I'll be sewing another one of these for BK's birthday in May.
And one last gratuitous photo of my little grumpy girl wearing the Amanda blouse and jumper on Sunday...
