Announcing Poly Crepe de Chine!
Bright, colourful and cute - a set of 5 soft snuggly reversible beanies for a baby girl. I designed them to fit a 15 inch head circumference (which is the average for around 6-8 weeks). Due to the stretch of the knit, they will easily fit up to (and possibly over) an 18 inch head - so plenty of room for growth. In fact, I can just squeeze them on my 2 year old's 20 inch head! There is around a 2 inch cuff on each beanie, and all the seams are nicely hidden inside so as not to scratch baby.
Please note - these are designed to be printed only in the stretch fabrics such as ORGANIC KNIT or MODERN JERSEY. None of the other fabrics have the stretch required.There are 5 to a yard, or one on a fat quarter, either option has full instructions printed on the fabric. With the yard, you also get 8 little birdies and 4 daisies that you can use as appliques on blankets, etc or sew back-to-back and stuff for whatever purpose you like!
Each of the fabrics are in this collection, if you want to see the details of the designs I have used.
