winter is here

winter is finally here.. again.  and what better way to welcome winter than with a new hoodie?

made this hoodie for lil j with his ‘approved’ fabric.  he chose this over the other piece i showed to him – only because it has teddy with red bow – just like the teddy he has.  well, not such good choice really, given that it turned out to be very pyjama looking!  and it did not help that i used one of dear hubz old tees for the lining.

the good thing was it turned out as it should a reversible hoodie, with matching arm lengths, and mostly straight stitches 😛 my first ever project with no stitches that required unpicking, and one which i totally figured out how to line and attach the hoodie and sleeves without referring to any tutorials!  yippie!  ok.. i read somewhere that i am not supposed to say i am proud – because that would be rather boastful.. so i am supposed to just say.. i am H-A-P-P-Y 😀

a very h-a-p-p-y lil j with his new hoodie. the sleeves were too long for him, so i folded it to take this picture, but i will be cutting it off later. he put on the boot by himself and i would think he did it because he has some fashion sense 😛

and now.. off to another project.. maybe if i remember to take some pictures along the way, i might come out with my first tute.. ermm.. lets just wait and see…

You alone are the LORD.  You made the heavens, even the highest heavens, and all their starry host, the earth and all that is on it, the seas and all that is in them.  You give life to everything, and the multitudes of heaven worship you.  Nehemiah 9:6
