Striped baby jumper

Boring, boring, boring, bored. What to make next; it’s a difficult decision because the more bored I get, the less interesting anything I could do becomes. Groundhog day.

Rummaging through my craft room, I discovered a baby jumper that my daughter had all-but finished. All that was left to do was to sew the shoulder seams, knit the collar, sew the side-seams, and hey-presto finished.

My daughter’s (29 year old) baby doll is roughly the size of a three month old baby. She is my favourite model, although many young people find the old fashioned style “creepy”. All babies are beautiful to their family whilst often ugly to others.
