Two baby capes

 Two baby carry capes made for the expected GGC due in February.

The doll models are the only surviving toys from my own children, so are about 40 years old now.  My Mum bought them for my twins one Christmas when they were toddlers and I know that they are new-born baby size because the day they received them my sister's friends called in with their new baby, only a few days old, and the dollies' heads were exactly the same size as the baby's head!

Jessie, who is very happy to be here!!  :),  but who has far too many sewing machines to be healthy, and a fabric stash which is becoming embarrassing.

Lovely, what a good idea for newborns: no fiddly sleeves and buttons.
