Yay Jacket Time

 

011

Why is my model standing on the couch poking out her tongue - well why not. Her new winter jacket is fully lined with cord for some extra toasty-ness and the outer fabric has a really interesting texture and is part of the new winter selection at Spotlight.  Most importantly it is a darker fabric with pattern so hides the mess that she seems to attract but still enough pink to pass the test.

The white lace trim are my new favourite way to fancy up her pants. 016

Often when you talk of making your kids clothes, there is the “is it worth it for the price you can buy” and sometime it is more the enjoyment but the cord and buttons were in the stash so the total cost was around $25. It is the same jacket pattern as last years.

Caleb’s beanie was one of my first finished crochet projects but actually fits Glen better (in my defence Glen does have a head the size of a toddler)

You know I've been waiting for this post don't you!
You and that jacket last year are legendary around here. Love this one and the lace trim too. x

GLEN DOES NOT HAVE A HEAD THE SIZE OF A TODDLER! (poor Glen).

Jacket = glorious. Beanie = fabulous (and Fits All Sizes).

Fabulous!
I love that fabric. I have a little piece in my stash. Not enough for a jacket, but a skirt maybe.
