B is for Bitty Baby

Each week at preschool, the kids are asked to bring something from home that begins with the letter of the week.  This week's letter was "B."  S wanted to bring Bitty Baby, her baby doll that we gave her to take care of when B first came into our family.   To bring her safely to school, I made Bitty Baby a front carrier of her own.
The Bear Carrier pattern is from my current favorite sewing book Little Things to Sew by Liesl of Oliver & S.  The design is simple but ingenious.  Bitty Baby already had a baby carrier, but she was always really floppy in it and the straps were way too big and long on S.  And so a new carrier was definitely needed.
I used Heather Ross Far Far Away II fabric for the main panel and pocket.  There's Rapunzel in the front pocket looking a bit annoyed.
And here is Bitty Baby looking happy and contented in her new carrier. 

I'll leave you with one last image of Bitty Baby and Baby B as a 2 month infant.


  1. CUTE! love that heather ross. she will get lots of use out of it if Em and Lila are any indication! :D

  2. ohhhh, super cute! great fabric and colors - what's the strap fabric? hard to believe B was ever so tiny...

  3. This is TOO cute! I just love it! I love the Rapunzel fabric too. (The last photo is precious - I love that she and the doll are in the same position. ha ha. GREAT photo)

  4. gail, the strap fabric is from sugar pop by liz scott. i remember when we first brought b home she was almost the exact size of bitty baby.
    sky, b and bitty baby were constant companions during the first few months of b's life. it was hard for me to tell them apart sometimes.
    kristin, i seem to be following your's and gail's lead a lot recently. thanks for the inspiration:)...
