See? I'm not procrastinating (yet).
That's Jenna's hoodie.
By hook or by crook, it's getting finished today.
These are Emily's hoodies:
I am such a sucker for dots. I know she might look like boiled salami in that pink fabric but argh! It's dots and I can't resist dots - they're so ROUND. I probably will have to pipe it somewhere to tone down the dottiness. Anyway, I'm thinking a pull-over-the-head-half-zip hoodie in Boiled Salami and a lined reversible full-zip hoodie in Water Bubbles. By-the-end-of-this-week is my deadline. Then I must get started on Jenna's party stuff.
My motivation for making hoodies for the girls was:
- Didn't want them to freeze while waiting for the bus in the mornings
- But of course couldn't find decent hoodies in stores to buy
- Maybe I can update their slopers (at least two years outdated) for imminent Halloween costume-sewing by making these hoodies. Whoo!
Re: slopers - who was I kidding? These are raglan-sleeve hoodies, for goodness' sake. How likely am I to make raglan-sleeve fairy or princess dresses? Besides, hoodies are the loosest, shapeless-est, unfittingest garments ever i.e. they're veritable ease-fests. Dunderhead. Back to the drawing board on that idea, then.
