Make It Perfect, Summer Carnival

.More Summer Carnival.

I’m back with a few more versions of Summer Carnival to share with you. I really like how this pattern can be made to suit a boy just as much as it can be for a girl.  
Here is little Nancy (who is very much a girl!) wearing the boy version – and if you aren’t into frills and ruffles for your little girl, then this version would be equally cute for her too.

And because I’m still crazy about this beautiful lightweight denim, I had to sew up a denim version too…with ruffles, but looking a little less fussy in a plain fabric. (Oh, Nancy Noo – you are super cuuuuute!)

I have a brand new pattern to share with you today! One for the babies…
Being sun-safe is especially important for baby’s sensitive skin. The Summer Carnival sun-hat is an essential baby wardrobe item – make sure you pop it on before heading out to the beach, pool or park this Summer to keep your baby cool and give you peace of mind.
Featuring a wide, floppy brim and essential chin-ties, your baby will be the cutest thing around!
Matching bloomers makes an adorable way to dress up any outfit, and with loads of room for the nappy they are super comfortable to wear. You can easily make this entire set boy-friendly by leaving off all the frills and ruffles.   


I’m in baby-sewing mode lately! Although I have a couple of other hat sewing patterns, I felt that I needed one that was geared explicitly toward babies. Baby hats need to provide great shade, fit snugly on the head and (most importantly) be impossible to pull off! And try as she might, my adorable niece Nancy couldn’t get the thing off her head!

With the addition of some fun and easy to sew baby bloomers to cover the nappy, Summer Carnival makes a great baby shower or first birthday gift. And if you don’t have little girls to sew for, never fear! This set looks just as gorgeous sewn up for a boy without any frills or ruffles, I’ll share that variation with you later in the week to avoid photo overload here!

Summer Carnival fits sizes newborn to 24 months, all sizes are in the one pattern. You’ll find more information about Summer Carnival on the Make It Perfect website.
