Designer Rob Merrett brings you a unique and charming collection of children's clothes that you'll love to make.
With 24 projects, incorporating over 40 items, there is sure to be the perfect outfit for your child at a fraction of the price of mass-produced, store-bought clothes.
Cute Clothes for Kids is split into three chapters, with each one clearly explaining, step by step, how to make practical yet fashionable garments.
You will find robust romper suits and sundresses with traditional nursery motifs in the first chapter, which is for newborns and babies up to nine months old.
Chapter two features a selection of hooded sweatshirts, shorts and summer dresses, all ideal for more active children up to three years old.
The final chapter, aimed at children from three to five years old, will delight girls and boys alike with pretty dresses and comfortable jackets.
Pull-out sheets containing all the full-size patterns and templates you need to complete the projects are included, and each pattern comes in three different sizes.
There is also an extensive techniques section, which is a great resource for a beginner and a handy aide-memoire for more experienced stitchers.
