Mouse raglan top

A couple of months ago I fell in love with a mousy raglan top Fatima made for her little girl. In fact, I loved it so much I copied it!


I made size 6-12 months, the smallest size of the Safari raglan tee pattern. I knew it would be a little roomy on baby L but I was fine with it. My fabric did not have a lot of stretch and I still wanted to be able to put a bodysuit underneath the raglan top.


The top is made from merino I had left after making a Little Betty top for Miss R. There was just enough fabric for a little top for a baby. It was meant to be!


These little ears transform a simple tee into something fun and whimsical, don't you think? Fatima, you are a genius :) A scrap of Liberty for the ears? Yes please!


Two tiny scraps of grey knit for the eyes, a little bit of pink for the nose, and whiskers stitched on the machine using a triple stitch. Simple.


I absolutely love this top on Baby L. It is warm, comfortable and oh so cute!

Thank you for inspiration Fatima!
