I’m a guest judge on Project Run and Play this week, and this week the theme is “Outerwear.” As part of our judge-ly duties, the guest judges are asked to do a post relating to the theme, and so at first I was like what tha heck do I know about Outerwear? but then as I started to look around I realized that no, it’s totally cool, I’ve made two coats for my kids this year and one of my free tutorials is a fleece hat. So I put together a little roundup of some of the outerwear-ey projects I have put together over the last couple of years over at Project Run and Play so go over and take a look!
Being the over-acheiver slash procrastinator that I am, I also whipped up this little fleece poncho for Clementine thinking I would put it up as a tutorial or pattern or something for the post. But of course when you start something like this two days before it’s due, and you’re also working overtime trying to get a skinny tee pattern completed by the end of the month, that’s unlikely to happen. So I’m letting that go for now, with the thought that maybe it can happen soon, we’ll see.
I’m not completely happy with the Minnie Mouse bow: it was supposed to be more huge and over-the-top but instead it ended up just looking super-girly. The overall effect is still ridiculously cute though. After my kids were in bed the other night, I kept staring at these pictures trying to figure out how this little person can look so fetching and sweet and still spend what seems like an entire day whining and crying at me until I want to pull my hair out. That’s what being two is all about I guess. And being a mom, too, really. I still love her so much it hurts.
