The older girl is already my height and stature, so I took almost the same measurements for the fleece rectangles as I used myself (2 pieces, one piece 1m x 0,7m) but I am really wondering if the one for the smaller girl fits as well. She's about 1,30 so I shortened the fleece rectangles to 0,8m x 0,5m.
And as the evening was quiet and peaceful, and my darling husband was watching TV, I eventually tackled a really mini project that has been waiting patiently since at least 6 weeks:
Whilst bringing Son #2 to school in the morning, I noticed that our pram for Little Miss Madam is not really seen by passing cars. Not soooo bad, as the school bag has some reflecting parts and Son #2 always wears a reflecting cover over his jacket (on school orders, the kids were all handed out one at the beginning of autumn), but on the way back and on rainy days I had to be especially careful. There are some reflecting ornaments near the handle of the pram, but nothing that is that noticeable.
So 6 weeks ago I bought some self-adhesive reflection material from the local fabric store and some popper buttons and since then, nothing much has happened.
Last evening I went through the old clothes that I normally bring to the old clothes containers, just to see if there was anything worth recycling and found and old body warmer, which had a nylon cover on the top side. There it was, the material I needed, and time to sew, so no excuses anymore.
I measured around the parts that I wanted to attach the material to, added 4 cms to the length and width for the nylon rectangles and attached the popper buttons. Then the reflecting material was cut to size and stuck on. Viola, the result:
