It’s a thing, you know, and I’ve got it bad.
It’s that jealousy you feel when your social media feed is filled with cute little girls in those adorable little hand knit sweaters but sewing is more your thing than knitting.
No need to scroll on past and give into that green eyed monster because there is a way to wrap your little one in a handmade sweater using your mad sewing skills instead. And to top it all off, it’s actually pretty easy.
Just grab a big sweater, some bias tape , a few buttons and you’re on your way.

If you’re really feeling adventurous and you’d like to make your own bias tape in any color or pattern you’d like you can find the step-by-step tutorial here.
Happy Sewing (instead of knitting)!

Thank you Nina! I’m pretty partial to this cute little girl! 🙂 🙂 🙂
ADORABLE!! After 7, yes, seven great nephews, we are getting our first great NIECE next month. I am so doing this for her. Thank you for a great site. Hugs, Heidi
Thank YOU for your nice comment Heidi! And CONGRATULATIONS on a new little girl in the family. Little girls are so special!
Thank you Kerry!
Great idea! Don’t need it now but I’m saving this one.
Thanks and please let me know if you have any questions if/when you try this. 🙂
Sooooo cute! Love them both! We have 2 granddaughters…. hmmmm, now to find sweaters that would work for them. Thank you for your willingness to share! Hugs. Jean
You are so very welcome, Jean! Thank you for your nice comment. Happy Sewing!
Just curious if you have any plans for another Refashion Runway…I used to really enjoy those.
I am so pleased that I have found some time to make this sweater for my granddaughter!
My husband was throwing out an old and very much loved Aryan sweater. It took him a few moments to recognize it in another form and ready for another life! (I have photos of before and after if you would like to see)
Oh I would LOVE to see the photos! You can send them to email@example.com Thanks so much!!!
