I fondly recall my collection of Strawberry Shortcake dolls & miscellaneous gear, so I was thrilled to find this fun knit fabric with one of my favorite toys from childhood. The hat pattern I had was ridiculously big (they actually did a one-size fits 0-24mos, um, right....), so I fiddled with it a lot to make it actually fit a newborn to match the gown. I always thought it was so dumb how any sets I bought had hats that would never fit at the same time as the actual outfit, but I think I succeeded with this homemade one. Here's hoping this little ensemble is the start of Strawberry making a comeback! If only I still had some of the toys left!
