Geranium outfit for Freya

I couldn't resist making a sweet bumble bee outfit for Freya, and adding those flutter sleeves to show off her chubby little arms. 

This is another Minerva Maker project, and I'm really loving being part of the team!

You may have guessed it - the pattern was the Made by Rae Geranium, and you can read all about the ups and downs of the project on the Minerva blog here

Spoiler alert - I appear to be the only one in the universe that didn't fall head over heels for this pattern. Trust me, it was not easy to be even slightly critical over an indie pattern, especially one that has basically reached "cult" status. On the other hand, it is also important to me that I am completely honest in my reviews. As an attempt to be constructive, I will try and post a tutorial to improve the back closure issue when I next make this pattern.

I made the matching nappy cover using this free pattern, and would highly recommend it.

    1. Thank you! It's getting so much harder to get photos of her now, though, as she would not just stay still :)

  2. So cute! It looks like a really nice fabric. I so appreciate an honest review! I think it's important to share/hear some real criticism of a pattern, even if a pattern is, on the whole, good.

    1. Thank you. I do try and be as balanced and fair as possible, because I, too, have benefited so many times from reading such reviews.
