Teddy and doll carrier - Katie's handmade birthday
This wee teddy carrier was Islay's idea and she chose the fabric too - I did most of the sewing but Islay was very involved in a supervisory kind of way...............repeatedly asking when I would be able to make it and hovering over my shoulder and breathing in my ear while I was making it!
Katie isn't too keen on carrying her baby in it but she does love to carry Ele around. It is especially useful when arranging fabric scraps.....two free hands and Ele is still close by. That, in Katie's book, is a very good thing.
Pattern - bear carrier from 'Oliver and S - Little Things to Sew' by Liesl Gibson
Fabric - Yay Day (Birch Forest and Wings of Love) and Essex Yarn Dyed Linen in Black from The Village Haberdashery
Buttons - vintage buttons
Comments - a straightforward pattern, straps are really long on a shorty like Katie but do leave lots of growing room, it is adjustable so will fit a small toy like Ele or a much larger teddy or doll, I love the fabric.....a lot
