The acquisition of some vintage style patterns has encouraged me to be creative with my hand printed fabrics. The beauty of toddler and baby patterns is that they use up less fabric and when you produce odd runs of fabric as I do it makes it easier to find a use for them (other than pouches)
Another Butterick pattern 248. This pattern had a total of three pieces. I only had bright pink bias binding and couldn't be bother making my own - it gives a nice bright pop of colour anyway. I like the fact that all the edges are neatly sewn beneath the bias - no zigzagging to neaten edges
Pretty good effort after night duty and 3 hours sleep.
