Farbenmix meets LoveChirp

And a very nice meeting it was!

I had two new baby girls to make gifts for, so I pulled out my copy of the Farbenmix Baby pattern pack (it has a very long, unpronounceable name I can't remember) from the CM Shop. I decided to do the jacket, as it is coming into winter here and I had some gorgeous cotton velour I wanted to use (stash busting and all that).



LoveChirp was the very first embroidery I bought from Huups - and wow! It is just so gorgeous :)



The jackets are identical apart from the colours I used in the embroideries. A slight mishap with my placement meant that I ended up making them into badges to sew on - but that also allowed me to position them exactly where I wanted.


I used a size 62/68, so the bubs can grow into them, and they should be light enough to wear through spring.

Cheers!

Just gorgeous Liz. I am now a velour convert (I just wish that it was double sided so that it was even more snuggly)
