Refresh of the footmuff pattern

Almost seven years ago, I posted a tutorial of sorts, showing how you can make your own customised footmuff (also known as cosytoe, bunting bag, pushchair bag, etc). It has by far been my most popular post, attracting over 50k hits.

After receiving a request to contribute to the Baby Feature (#babyfeatureUKQU) on the UKQU website, I have now updated the tutorial and turned it into a downloadable PDF pattern with images explaining the various steps of the process. As usual, it has taken longer to get the pattern and tutorial written up than actually making the item itself!

Feedback on my original tutorial can be found in the comments section on the original post.

To make your own customised footmuff, please head over to my UKQU shop; whilst you are there, don’t miss the opportunity to also download some of my free patterns to make the UKQU logo (appliqué and FPP); just make sure you click the ‘Free Patterns’ link to see all of them.

Thank you

The main fabric I used is called Geometrix and was generously donated by Lewis and Irene. It is available in shops across the United Kingdom now. I also used a stripy mint green & white cotton, probably from Fabrics Galore in London, and in an effort to be frugal, a previously used fleece blanket from IKEA. You need around 1.5m of each, but it varies depending on the size you are making.
