I love easy projects. This one is near the top of the list of "easiest craft projects I've ever made." So easy, so fast, so cute. I love that combination!
It's chilly here still, but I love Raina in dresses. I looked through my stash of old clothes waiting to be transformed, and found a pullover fleece with a silvery snowflake pattern on the bottom. Perfect for a little fleece jumper!
I folded it in half inside-out and traced one of Raina's dresses on it for length and width. Next I pinned the sides and sewed them up, sewing "hems" on the strap edges, too. And last (yes, really!) I used some velcro for the straps, so that it can easily go over her head and fasten without buttons or snaps. Because I am way too afraid to try the buttonhole option on my sewing machine yet, and I have no snaps in my sewing basket :). I thought about hemming the bottom edge, but decided not to in the end. The fleece wont fray, and I like the soft look it has without a hemline. Oh, and I'm lazy. DONE!
It looks super cute layered up with warm tights and bright long-sleeved onesies. Thanks again, pile of old clothes!
