Bear / Doll Carrier from Little Things to Sew
ummm or Unicorn carrier….
This month, I joined in with Jessica over at a little gray's Little Things to Sew-along. This carrier has been on my “sewing to-do list” for a long time and was the reason I purchased the book last spring – especially after I saw Holly's post about her completed carrier. The sew-a-long was just what I needed to stop procrastinating further.
For the exterior, I used Robert Kaufmann’s Sweet Tooth fabric and for the interior and the straps, cream corduroy. The instructions suggest cotton batting, but I used fusible fleece which worked fine.
Here is Hope sporting her new carrier. She likes to play “family” and loves playing with dolls. I recently found this particular doll at St. Vincent de Paul. It is a Horsman doll (1976). She named her Annika - she names all of her dolls Annika (her favourite Pippi Longstocking character).
It felt good to finally complete this project and I think Hope will enjoy it.
Wishing you a great week,
