Moon Glory: Roly Poly Along9:49 pm
I had this Roly Poly tunic half-planned, and then when Rachael of Imagine Gnats asked if I wanted to be a part of her pattern tour I *leaped* at the offer. Funny story, the tunic I had half-planned I didn't actually make.
See I had an idea to make it into a cat face with ears, and then make a hooded shirt with cat ears on that. BUT there are some cool developments in a pattern I really love by a pattern-maker I also really love and I am saving the cat ears thing for that. That's all I'm going to say on the matter!
Instead we have this! Little Moon Glory!
Using all recycled materials, I made a second Roly Poly reversible pinny for Edison. The first side of the dress is made from a purple business shirt I had bought from the op-shop when I was trying to figure out what I would make for the Men's Business Shirt theme for Project Run & Play. I used the lower front of the shirt, incorporating the placket. The back of the pinny is made from the sides of the shirt, so I still have sleeves, collar, upper front and an entire back of the original shirt to use up.
|Sorry I didn't iron it *properly*. I know that my girls are going to be all snarkin' at me for that!|
You can see the side-seams of the original shirt in this photo. The hat I made before Edison was born, it's an Enid Gilchrist 'helmet' pattern. I added ears to it. I've made this before when I made Vincent a fake-mohawk hat. Haha.
I also made a second Bimaa Sweater in the smallest size for Edison from two t-shirts in my stash. The underneath of the cowl is a purpley-blue(?) colour you can kind of see peeking out there. It fits really well, a little long in the sleeve for this baby but she's so porky it fits her tummy!
By the way, the weather is pretty cold & cloudy over here! Love that I can layer Eddie up in this tunic, and she STILL looks cute AND warm!
