This title presents 25 adorable projects to keep your little one looking cute and comfortable all year round. Designer Rob Merrett guides you through projects for cute, stylish and practical clothes for babies aged from 0 to 3 years, including skirts, hats, shirts, jackets, dresses and more. There are unisex items like a romper suit in cosy towelling material or the jacket and trouser set, as well as fun accessories like a scarf to keep little children warm. The last thing a busy mother needs is fiddly stitches and tricky techniques, so each piece has been designed to be quick and simple to make yet still look great, and should you need to brush up on a stitch, there's a useful section at the back to guide you. All the projects are made using materials that are kind to a baby's skin and easy to wash, so you don't have to worry about stains. Plus, they make use of clever fastenings so that they can be put on and taken off a wriggling baby in no time. This title includes full-size patterns and templates for every project.
