This is the second round that I have sewn for Happy Cactus Fabrics and they are quickly joining my favorite fabric printers list! I just love their lightweight bamboo lycra. It is so silky soft and perfect if you have a hot natured little guy like we do!
For this round I was sent a light blue Fat Half Yard of bamboo lycra. A Fat Half Yard has two prints in one yard of fabric – in this case a fat half of carnival print on one side and a fat half of stars on the other.
I was also sent a Toddler Blanket Topper yard in Minky! These are the same as the Fat Half Yards, but in minky! To make a blanket you just fold in half, right sides together and stitch the three open sides leaving an opening for turning. Or you can cut them in half first and sew all four sides leaving an opening for turning. I prefer this way to make sure everything is straight. The end result is an awesome double sided toddler sized minky blanket – no additional fabric required! These are very easy to sew up as the minky has very little stretch. I also added Kai’s name in appliqued red and white stripes to go along with the Carnival theme.
For Kai’s romper, I used the All the Rage Romper pattern by Max & Meena using the Carnival print as the main fabric and the stars side for the sleeves. I also used a red and white stripe from TKB Prints for the cuffs.
I desperately wanted to get a picture of Kai and the new puppy wearing her matching bandana, but puppy was mostly interested in trying to eat Kai!
Pascha was much more cooperative but Kai had lost interest at that point.
Be sure to check out the awesome Carnival round at Happy Cactus Fabrics!
