Good news! You can now find pattern instructions, backs of patterns and pattern covers all in one place ! All the files we have are there (including instructions for some out of print patterns). I also left images of oooold patterns in the folder just to show what our patterns used to look like 20 years. That's me wearing a yellow snow suit and a grey hat on the pattern cover (circa 1985) :)

Super Henri!

Henri is proudly wearing his first Halloween costume! Here are all the items: As I mentioned in a previous post, I slightly modified pattern 2318 for the Bathat and made Batsocks using pattern 2448 . Then, I made a Batdiaper (pocket diaper without the inserts) with the upcoming diaper. Henri wears it over Battights made of swimsuit lining fabric. I did not use any pattern for the shirt and tights (Henri's grandmother can actually cut such basic items without any measurements - Lucky me!). Finally, I used fusible interfacing to apply the batman logo cutouts to the garments. I don't know if Henri felt like a superhero with his costume, but he rolled over, from his tummy to his back, for the first time during the photo shoot!!!

Baby Fleece Slippers

I put the Halloween costume project on hold and decided to use pattern 2318 (since it was already open) to make a last-minute gift for a friend of mine who just had a baby. I made little fleece slippers in the smallest size (which is already wayyy too small for 3-month old Henri!). I'm quite happy with the result!

Halloween Costume

Henri is still too young for trick-or-treating, but I thought I could make him a little costume just for the fun of it... I don't want to make anything complicated and don't have much time, so here's my plan: a baby batman "costume"! Well... by costume I mean Batman diaper and hat :) I bought some Batman PUL (laminate fabric we use to make diapers) from Kids in the Garden a few weeks ago that I could use to make a batman diaper. For the hat, I will try making something cute using pattern 2318 since it includes baby sizes. I will modify the hat on the right to make it pointy in the middle... I hope it will work!

Teeny Tiny Thermal Socks

It's getting chilly in Quebec... Henri is keeping his feet (and cute chubby legs) warm with his new Power Stretch socks ( pattern 2448 ). The pattern runs from size 0 to women's shoe size 12. A great way to use stretch fleece scraps :) You can see how easy it is to make these on YouTube
