Cuddly Housecoat!

Thursday, May 5, 2011

Good Morning!

I've had the idea to make Gavin a new housecoat for quite a while now. He grew out of his old one a long time ago and hasn't had one since. I think they're so cute on kids! I finally got around to making a new one the other day. I had some very soft, double sided minky fabric in my stash that I bought when it was really cheap. What could be better? A housecoat soft for him and for those cuddling him. I just drew up my own pattern using a piece of his clothing as a size guide. I could have made it a little bigger, so I will probably make another. Here is what I came up with...

And it also has a cute little pixie-ish pointed hood!

On another note, I started work Tuesday after 865 days of not working. Sigh, I was so tired after a full day of work! But it will be nice to have some income, however small it may be. Hopefully I'll settle into a rhythm with working life soon and my blogging won't suffer at all! Fingers crossed. :)
