Experiment 626

 StitchKai2

Everytime I get a package of fabric from Poppy Kettle Textiles, I just cannot get over how vivid the colors are!

This Experiment 626 (AKA Stitch) fabric was no exception!  I love the pretty blues and purples and the cosmic background was just fitting for Stitch.

 I made this two piece outfit from a child sized panel and a fat half of coordinate.   I used a solid royal blue for the joggers waistband and therefore had just enough fabric for this 12 month size.

I used one of my favorite tee patterns for Kai’s top – GYCT’s Primary Tee and Dress pattern.  I love it’s roomy fit and how easily it fits over Kai’s head.  I do add about an inch to the neckbag for Kai’s big noggin, but I don’t think it would be necessary for the average 12 month size wearing baby.  There are so many options as well for this pattern – short sleeves, long sleeves, even a dress! I cut the front from my panel, and used the coordinate for the back of the tee, sleeves, pant legs and cuffs.  I used a royal blue solid for the waistband.

For the pants, I chose the Max Joggers by Max & Meena. These are a quick and easy sew and always a great fit.

 Finally, the hat…

The moment I saw this fabric, I knew we were going to need a hat! For this hat, I started with the Patterns for Pirates free pattern, the Teenie Beanie.  I freehand drew the ears with the obligatory notches and included them in the side seams. The entire hat is made from polar fleece with the ears lined in a pink cotton/lycra. I added a little to the hat band once again to accommodate Kai’s head size and the less stretchy fleece. The facial features are cut from marine vinyl and stitched on before assembling the hat.

  I may be biased but I think our little Experiment 626 is even better than the original!
