Woo-hoo! The Comfy Sleep Set download is all fixed and back up on the Stitch website! If you downloaded it before, please try this one out instead. I think you’ll really like it. At least, I hope you’ll really like it!
Remember this post: Carnival Bloom Skirt? I was so excited about Michael Miller and Moda and their cotton interlocks. I actually mentioned how much I’d love to see some Michael Miller boy prints on interlock, and MM fulfilled my wish with this amazing Dino Dudes interlock! Do you think the folks at MM read my blog? (I want more! Little boys need a selection of adorable designer cotton knits.)
Moving on . . . there’s a giveaway here, I promise! Here’s the latest Comfy Sleep Set that I sewed up for my little guy:
I used my Serger Detailing tutorial to give some extra color to the neck binding in this one:
This cotton/spandex waistband is really awesome. (As a side note, the waistband is cut quite a bit shorter than the opening in the pants where it attaches. You really have to give it a good stretch while you’re sewing it on. The spandex in it will make it bounce right back.) Here are a few pictures of the fit over a cloth diaper. (This is an AI2 that I wouldn’t call super trim or bulky.)
And, here a few pictures of the fit over a disposable diaper:
Ah, the giveaway–that’s what you came here for, right? This week, I’m giving away everything you need to make your own Dino Dudes Comfy Sleep Set: 3/4 yard of Dino Dudes cotton interlock, 1/4 yard of cotton/spandex ribbing and a copy of the Spring 2011 Stitch magazine.
I didn’t forget you moms of little girls, though. If you win and you’d prefer something more feminine than dinosaurs, I’ll let you choose this Mod Blooms cotton interlock, instead.
How to enter:
Entry option #1: Leave a comment here telling me if you were a fabric designer, what would you put on cotton interlock? What subjects, colors, etc. You can link to a favorite fabric, if you’d like, but it’ll take a bit for your comment to post because I’ll have to approve it.
Entry option #2: Like Fishsticks Designs on Facebook: Fishsticks Designs Facebook Fan Page. Yes, I finally put up a FD Fan page. There’s not much there yet. Well, there’s really nothing there yet, but I’m planning to use it for announcements, contests, special discounts, etc.
Entry Option #3: Post something that you’ve made with a Fishsticks Designs pattern on the FD fan page. I can’t wait to see what you have to share!
Giveaway entries will be closed at 10 p.m. central on Tuesday, February 8, 2011.
