Kids Sewing – Ottobre Kids Design Magazine

Rocking bunnies! I loved this sweatshirt jersey the moment I laid eyes on it in B&M Fabrics, Leeds Market.

Obviously, it was going to be an Ottobre design make. If are familiar with the magazine, you’ll know that they use really quirky print fabrics and this fit the bill.

The pattern is a simple hooded vest top from the Summer 2015 issue.  I bought a half meter at £14/m which was enough for this top.

It’s a unisex design that has quickly passed from my son in the picture to his younger sister (the perils of sewing for kids is that they grow so fast!)

Unfortunately, the sweater fabric doesn’t have a lot of stretch hence its short residence with the original owner. For fabric like this next time, I will make an oversized jumper like this one here which is still being worn by said son even though it was made in December 2016.

Those cheeky bunnies!

Even tried coverstitching the hem.

The cover for your head known as a hood or hoody lining is a cotton jersey that had fortuitously been hanging around waiting for a project. Glad to see it used up!

A quick easy project that gets my thumbs up. Could be easily turned into a dress by simply lengthening it. Ottobre Kids design sizes are always spot on and the instructions excellent. It is my first port of call when I am making sewing plans for the kids.

Thanks for stopping by this little corner of the interwebs.

Until next time – Happy Sewing!

Peace and love,

Hila
