Doggy "Jamie Jumper"
Someone posted this adorable 0/3 month sized jumper over on Diaper Divas this week and I just couldn't resist trying it myself. I have been looking for something very similar so this almost fit the bill exactly. It's a FishSticks Pattern and you can purchase the pdf in the store below, in the little one Layette and Wee Tot collection.I think maybe the jumper goes up to a 5T or so. Here is her site.
The hat is a preemie knot hat that I found online and downloaded. I wish I could tell you where I found it. I know it was by blesseddesigns.net, but I can't find a link anymore. Super easy on a serger, really only takes a minute or two to sew up.
This fabric was really special to me. I had just heard of ottobre and downloaded their free tank top pattern off line. I went to JoAnn's and there was the cutest little doggy knit for Noah. I bought some material, ran back home and got busy. Sewed the tank top on my sewing machine and when I was done I thought I was the "cat's meow!". Looking back I bet it looked horrible on the inside, but I was so pleased with myself. Made a pair of matching shorts with appliques and a quickie visor to keep the sun out of his face. Looks like my tank top was too short and my shorts too long, but I was just happy that I had faced my fear of knits. I'm so glad that I saved some of this for our new little boy!
I used my coverstitcher and added a .25" or so onto the pattern to allow for the binding.
