With temperatures still in the 90's across a lot of the country, and I have two friends about to have their babies, I thought a cute romper tutorial was in order for our Tutorial Tuesday spot.

Don't forget to send images of any project you make with Girl Charlee Fabrics to gcblog(at)girlcharlee(dot)com and you might see your creation featured in our next KnitPicks!
