Yeah..it's hot outside and I'm making big freaking thick blankets for our stroller. The logic in that is lost on me too, folks. I guess I just like to stay productive. (or wishful of cooler weather)
We got a new bike-trailer for Kenzie, who was exceeding the poundage on our ride-a-long bike seats. The trailer also transforms into the lightest stroller I've ever pushed!! I tend to do a lot more walking and biking when it's cooler outside. And Ms. Kenzie usually requires a blanket. So...now I'm ready.
We also do a lot of camping (or used to in California anyway). I made sure that this also fit our camping chairs. For snuggling up around the campfires... It'll keep those tooties nice and warm.
I used the brilliant "peek-a-boo-bunting" tutorial offered in the margin at Joybucket. I adjusted it according to my stroller/chair dimensions, so that it's big-kiddo-double-stroller-sized. This quilt is THICK, and I probably wouldn't recommend (or try) that thickness again - as it made button holes absolute bloody hell. Yet, the quilt will suit it's purpose. And, it's damn cute to boot. Not to mention that I used an old piece of textile art that had been sitting around for awhile!
The quilt ties at top, to keep it from slipping down. For Kenzie, it works well tied one one side, and tucked under her little armpits. The bottom of the quilt, folds -&- buttons into a bit of a pocket for the insertion of the kiddo's feet. Great tutorial!
