Jot was invited to a Superhero party this weekend and declared last weekend that she needed a superhero cape to go to the party. So a quick trip to Spotlight on Wednesday netted me some plain homespun in teh specified colours and on Friday I got to play.
I don't have a cape pattern or at least not one I liked and I wanted to make it a little bit girly so I grabbed a poncho pattern I have an extended it to cape length. I then added stripes on the side and the obligatory super hero letter. Finally I added a ribbon to the neckline. It is a grossgrain ribbon which means that once it is done up it doesn't get progressively tighter (good idea for her). She rocked it at the party but wouldn't stand still for a picture.
On that same trip to Spotlight I stumbled on this gorgeous mermaid fabric. Jot has been completely obsessed by mermaids recently even going to far as to ask if she could become one (Thanks Walt Disney) so I thought she would like a nightie for Easter. I'm quite proud to say I got the mermaids the right way up this time :)
Today we had to go back to Spotlight to pick up some stuff to mend one of Jots necklaces and I thought I would see if there was anymore. Couldn't find any in the pink but did find the green which you can see in the corner of this next shot. I got the remainder of the bolt which was only 2m so I am planning a pair of pjs and if there is enough left a small book sling. I will keep my eye out for more to make a reasonable sized book sling for her cousin too.
Todays other purchase was the thread to hand quilt my Mondrian yes I know It is nearly two years since I got the blocks but I am determined that it will be finished in time for winter to hit. I have been promising it to R for our sofa for a while.
I also have managed to cut out two pairs of pjs for Jot which I am hoping to be able to sew together over the next few days depending on the kids.
Now though I am going to watch Indiana Jones and see if I can find something to eat :)
