Knitted Baby Card(cardigan and bonnet)



Another baby card today. Sorry to be boring but I wanted to get this one ready for a new arrival. I knitted it in white as I don't 'know what it it yet' ( makes a change) but it didn't show up well in the pictures so 'here's one I made earlier'. Oh dear, two cliches and such a small amount of writing! The pattern is here if you want to make one.

  • With right sides together oversew underarm seams.
  • Run in yarn ends. Front and neck edges can be neatened by blanket stitching along them if required.
  • Fold one front across the other (direction depends on colour!)
  • With single yarn take a tiny stitch through both fronts and tie a bow to fasten them.
  • Pull ends until loops are small enough, make sure bow is tight before you trim ends.
Assembly Instructions
  • Fix backing in place on aperture card
  • Apply  sticky backed flower tape around the card aperture.
  • Use small pieces of 3D double sided foam tape or pads to attach the bonnet and cardigan to the card. 
  • Use micro glue dots or a tiny amount of PVA glue to attach bonnet strings to the card.
