A Squishy Jolly Roger Raglan
Squish, Squishy, Cozy, Soft, Stretchy, Amazing, Squishy, Cuddly, Warm, Snuggly, Squishy...... Just a few things to describe the amazing SQUISH! Anyone who has been lucky enough to touch the squish is seriously obsessing over it. THANK YOU AMBER FOR BRINGING THIS INTO OUR LIVES!!!
Now- the amazingness that is squish is hard to portray in photos honestly. They just don't do it justice, but I'm going to do my best! What is squish? Well, think minky mashed with double-brushed poly. It has all the softness and squishy pile of minky with the stretch and finished backside of double brushed poly. It's perfect for clothing, blankets you want to have some stretch too, and really anything that needs a stretch. ( Minky is going to be better for all your options that stretch is not your friend - check out our previous blog post about all the different minky inspirations.)
For his squishy outfit top I used the Jolly Roger Raglan from Patterns For Pirates and it came together perfectly! It's such a great pattern with a huge range of sizes from 3m to size 14!! These are some of the options you can choose with it too!
Emerson is a little over 18 months and is outgrowing that size but not quite a 2T. I decided to still make him a 2T so he can wear his squish next winter. I used squish for the arms and bands. The white is actually the reverse side of squish so you can see how amazingly soft it is on both sides. The center I used a french terry and they sewed together with no problems at all. He loved this shirt and it kept him warm running around outside in the snow! The arms stretched with zero issues as well as the bands and they all had great recovery too. It's like warm fully soft cloud wrapped around you. Trust me- You need it!
Jolly Roger Raglan isn't just amazing for squish but for a ton of different fabrics like this cotton lycra one made by the awesome Jessie Lynn out of TKB prints.
