This one is my ALL time favourite project to date. I cannot wait until Kyle and I start a family so I can make awesome baby projects like this one; I will have a million of these by the time our first baby comes. Okay..not a million exactly but pretty close. haha.
This pattern is from Lotta Jansdotter’s “Simple Sewing for Baby” and while I was able to find the pattern online for free I ended up buying the book. A downside to online printable patterns is that you have to tape the pieces of paper together to make the pattern and for this project I found it to be too confusing, though there are only a couple pattern pieces. I am happy I got the book as there are a number of cute projects I will definitely use in the future!
I made this for our friends who were having their first baby. At the time we didn’t know the gender but the mom loves horses so when I saw this I thought it would be perfect for their son or daughter (they have a beautiful baby boy). The inside of the snuggler is milky, which is the most amazing fabric in the world; so soft AND washable!
Overall it was a pretty easy project to complete. A few seams, some velcro and you’re done; I top-stitched the top layer which wasn’t what you were supposed to do but I prefer how it turned out that way.
