Santa Baby!

I noticed lately that I make a lot more clothes for Anna than I do for Lucy. I guess that happens when you have two kidlets of the same gender - the eldest gets all the new gear while the younger ones end up wearing the hand me downs. So I decided to make something special for my littlest one.


I found this cute Santa fabric at my local Spotlight. The selvedge says 'Cute Santa' by Sugar and Spice Textiles. I only bought half a metre on a whim last week, and then while I was having a browse on pinterest I found this cute pattern and tutorial over at Prudent Baby. Perfect!

I had the yellow polka dot fabric in my scrap stash, and had just enough for the neckline and to make some bias binding to sew along the hem.


Yellow and red aren't a common christmas colour combo but it matched perfectly with the yellow in the lights on the fabric.

I was really pleased with outcome and it fits Lucy perfectly!


I have teamed it with a cute red corduroy skirt for Lucy, chances are it will be a warm day for Christmas here in the Southern Hemisphere. If you live north, these little tops are very cute over a plain long sleeved tee and some warm leggings or jeans. The pattern allows you to adjust the length so you can make it as a top or extend to make it a dress.

My model wasn't overly cooperative this morning, so this is the best shot I got of her in her Christmas outfit:


Have you done any Christmas sewing? I will be posting some more for you later this week!

Less than 24 hours to go for entries into my giveaway! Check it out!
