To celebrate the first snowflakes of the year, we're giving away one of our Zippy Bunting sample garments and a copy of the pattern so you can make your own!
This sample will fit infants up to 18 months and is great for a boy or a girl!
Here is what the designer, Heather Jamison says about this pattern:
I first had the idea to make this pattern while making clothes for my daughters’ dolls. The first one was a 12” doll and it turned out so cute that I soon enlarged the pattern for their larger dolls. When our youngest daughter was about 7 months old, it was wintertime. I found that it was a hard age to keep blankets on while going out. That was when I decided to enlarge the pattern once more and make a bunting that would fit her. We got many comments on her “coat” and how she looked so “warm and cozy”.
There are several things about the Zippy Bunting that I really like. It is very easy to put on a baby since there aren’t any legs in it. It is made wide enough at the bottom that there isn’t a need for a seatbelt slit for carseats. There is enough fullness that you can also sit your baby in the front of a shopping cart with enough room remaining for their feet.
The Zippy Bunting is quick and simple to sew. You can make one in less than an hour once you are familiar with the pattern. I recommend using polar fleece fabric as it is very warm and you won’t need a lining. This is also an excellent idea for gifts whether it be for a new baby or a little girl’s birthday or Christmas.
