Elephant Skyline Peanut Swaddler15:57
As if by magic, two fabulous things happened to me this last few months. Firstly I was sent some of the softest knit ever in an incredibly cute design, and secondly I stumbled across Sugar Tart Crafts Peanut Swaddler tutorial.
Cue choirs singing, light shining from behind the clouds etc...match made in heaven!
Unfortunately we're still at least two months away from having a real life model for this swaddler....enter creepy childhood doll in Jesus pose!
My nan knitted this little outfit for my dolly when I was a child, I remember having a lemon & pink one too but that's long since been lost in the mists of time.
With the double zip you can easily gain access to change the baby's nappy without having to completely un-swaddle and risk waking them (Apparently...I'll let you know how that goes when I try it for real!)
I'm hoping a real baby won't look quite so odd because she'll have her arms tucked in nicely rather than trying to do the Jesus pose.
I'm totally in love with this Elephant Skyline knit from Sara at Sew Sweetness' Jungle Ave line of fabric. It's a special edition by Art gallery fabrics so I don't think it'll be around forever. The print is really fun and I've got a large chunk left. I wonder if I can squeeze an adult size T shirt out of what I've got left....?
Thank you so much Sara for sending me some of this knit, it's gorgeous and I know baby Elvis is going to love her new swaddler! It's lightweight enough to not over-heat her but cosy enough to comfort her.
