In a bid to clear out my stash of fabric I had a check and realised I had enough cream cord to make one. Yay! And the scraps of brushed cotton my Mum gave me from when she made Iona's blanket were just perfect for the lining and ear inners. So soft and snuggly.
Then on further erm, organisation (not a word or action I use very often at home haha) I had leftover red cord from the Red Riding Hood! So I made Ian one too... he wouldn't entertain a photo shoot with it it on, you know because he's at big school now and being Primary 1 makes him far too big and grown up to pretend to be a bear or lamb. I seriously can't decide if these hoods look like bears or due to the ear placements that they look more like cute little lambs. Either way I love them...
I also love doing a little sewing as it's a great excuse to use my strawberry pincushion. I got this from Tracy at Mad About Bags about 4/5 years ago and it's my favourite and best pin cushion. Just the right size and super cute too. I do love the lovely people I have 'met' whilst blogging.
Luckily this girl was (kind of) willing to pose as a red Lamb... am I the only one who thinks of Red sheep for red jumpers and blue sheep for blue jumpers whilst looking at this hood? Or was that just my Dad that told us that after asking him why some sheep were black and some white?... just my Dad then haha.
Ian did as always, save me his Jammy Heart as thanks for the hood. He has NEVER eaten the centre of a Jammy Dodger or the centre of a Doh-Ring. Really he bites around the hole and leaves it. It cracks me up.
So, lamb or bear these hoods are cute and were actually really easy to sew.
Hope you are all ready for Autumn... or Spring depending on your position on this planet...
