This is amazing!!! Is this pattern still available? I have tons of fleece and this would make the perfect charity gift, but darn my luck if I can't find the pattern.

Janie, this is really cute! But you might want to resize your image in your FoPR Photo album.

Ok, I have made this up similar to how it was to be constructed. This photo is similar to the others I did for Christenings. I chose to cut a 2 inch strip the width of a contrast 100 weight polar fleece, two strips were more than enough. I seamed them together at the 2" edge right sides together. The zipper goes in first. I zig zag the right side of the zipper to the right edge of the front on both sides. No zipper foot needed for the next step if the zipper is at least 2" longer than the length of the front. open the zipper and top stitch down the front making a little fold on the right side. Put both zipped up front to back (wrong sides together) and baste zig around the tnrie edge, trimming edges to make a narrow and even edge. I sew the right side of the trim to the right side of the bunting in about a d 3/8" in seam, pulling slightly as you go. This makes the fleece fold naturally around to the back. After going all around I pull the trim firmly which causes it to curl to the wrong side of the fabric. This automatically causes a bias trim feel! I pinned around the edge and topstitched the edge on the wrong side. I put the hood to gether with narrow lapped seam up the back and then took about a 1-1/2 inch wide strip of the trim and sewed it to the front edge that will surround the babies face. If you stretch the trim as you attach it to the front it will naturally gather up the fleece so elastic is not needed. I sewed the hood to the body with wrong sides together and bound around neck with more trim. I had put an angel tassel on the hood of my Great nephew's but had to settle for a little daisy for my DGN's 2nd cousin (isn't it amazing how diluted relatives can get!)

It was really good to see this review. I'm about to make this pattern for a friend of mine. I'm a beginning sewer, and this will be my first baby outfit so these tips will come in handy, especially the tip about the bias binding.

This is so cute! I love that one in the pattern pic that looks like a carrot! (ps - I hope you're entering the charity sewing contest with those extras)
