O neglected blog. Amidst two busy months at work and home, I have connected with my creative side when not completely exhausted :)
First, my Kids Clothes Week Challenge from way back at the end of September. Yes, I was cutting and sewing this back then, although I didn't finish until early October. I used fabric from my stash - very please with the color combination. I have been waiting to use the gold fabric, which is an old old Joann's print, for a long time. I did make a mistake which happens to me a lot these days when I sneak a few minutes of sewing here and there - cut out the fabric upside down. Fortunately it is not noticeable!
And then there's Halloween... "Super AP" -- found red clothes, belt and favorite boots from AJ's wardrobe. Red felt mask with velcro closure and red felt arm cuff with 'laser' button. Red cotton bath towel made into a cape - perfect for being a super hero every night after the bath, too!
Now the Rose Bush. She was supposed to be an Apple Tree, but this is what happens when your Joann's is temporarily closed and you buy fleece online where they do not label the colors :) So, an improvisation. The pants, top and cape are based on Making Children's Clothes patterns, and the headband I just whipped up. I expect at least the headband, cape and possibly the dress to be worn throughout the winter.
