I work with our good friend Cassie over at OTY Fabrics NZ and between us we design fabrics for the New Zealand market. These fabrics often end up in my Picklefish Products NZ Store in lots of different products. We always strive to be different, edgy and cool. Like the kids we sew for. Summer is fast approaching here in the Southern Hemisphere, so not only do I feel like making Christmas Vests (like in my previous tutorial) but I thought I should make a few gifts for the new babies who have appeared this year. Plus there is some lovely floral in the latest preorder available over at OTY Fabric so I had to turn them into something pretty.
Brindille and Twig have generously offered quite a few patterns for free over on their website including the adorable Bummies and Ringer Tee. I wanted to make a size 3-6 month Summer Set for a friends new baby ready for the summer...so these two seemed perfect. A cute floral tee, and a cute bummies to match in the new floral prints from OTY Fabric seemed a perfect match. So I will post a few pics of what I made and some tips for those new to sewing. There isn't much need for a full tutorial as the B&T Patterns including fabulous photo tutorials within their free pattern's. If you are new to sewing with knits you really should go check those patterns out.
So heres what I started with and what they looked like all finished off and ready for their little recipient.
After completing this project I am thinking of a few hacks from combining the Ringer Tee and Bummies together to make a romper with a snap crotch to adding ruffle sleeves to the Ringer Tee and ruffle strips to the Bummies. But I think they are for another blog entry in the future.
thanks for stopping by and reading my humble blog!
