My sister is pregnant. Something I am quite excited about. I had my daughter nearly 18 years ago, so there hasn’t been a new addition to the family for a very long time.
At the recent Knitting & Stitching show, I picked up some jersey and ribbing to make some baby leggings. I had found a pattern from Brindille & Twig which looked reasonably easy to make.
There were only 5 pieces to sew together.
Although the cuffs were tricky because they struggled to fit around my sewing machine arm.
It only took about 30 mins to cut and sew the trousers, and I had enough fabric to make 2 pairs!
Fingers crossed my sister likes them…
