This small wrap sweater was made years ago, to keep warm a little baby. I have used fleecy fabric. Warm and soft. Perfectly suitable for baby skin.
I have chosen a store-bought polyester bias. As you can see, the sewing lines are not quite straight. Just as for the little bibs I told you about in my last post. Hurrying while the baby was sleeping. Or maybe too tired to see straight.
With the leftover bias, I made a ribbon to attach the two front panels.
Despite the imperfections, this small wrap sweater kept my boys warm. And wrapping your baby with a piece of clothing you have made is very rewarding. A simple pattern like this one is perfect for a beginner in the craft of sewing. I would like to encourage women and men, girls and boys, to dare taking a piece of fabric and to sew something. Anything. Even if the result is far from perfect. I do not believe in perfection. But I do believe that creating gives you joy. And a feeling of achievement.
