I found some flannel to line it with – I’m not sure where it came from and it has really been hanging around waiting to be made into p.j. trousers for the girls. The hat uses so little that I’m sure there’s enough left for pyjamas. I made age 1 to 3. It looked big as I sewed it up, and I was rather suspicious when it was finished. Let’s just say that Katie has plenty of growing room! She does have a little head but I think the pattern must run a lot on the large side.
I had hoped for some cute Katie photos but she wasn’t prepared to help me out. Islay was, but we were rather distracted by the little monkey herself who was making another raid on Islay’s soft toy dog…..and then teasing with an offer of handing him back……..only to run off as fast as her toddling little legs would allow. And the scary thing is that she is only going to get faster and taller – not much is safe at the moment and the list is going to get smaller!
