 Wink Shocked

Well in truth it went wrong,was supposed to be hooded,but pah,I was making a solar system model with my ten year old at the time and it went a bit ,funny Embarrassed

So I ended up with a cute key hole neck line, I used some FOE left from some nappy making ,I love FOE I need more in more co9lours as the white was a bit boring looking but as an emergency that is fine I am cool with that!
It is a resin snap closure and a wee hippo appliqued patch,this matches his cot bed duvet Wink

The child you see told me I could photograph him ,if I let him work the snp press Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Roll Eyes





(the snap press is his one true love)



Then I turned the hood into a little hat Cheesy
Also with a yup,you guessed resin snap closure,it is fab for when he is on my back in a M.T he cannot pull it off and leave it behind,plus is doesn't fall off when one is zooming around on a bee

I like it.  Easy to put on and easy to keep it there.  What more can you ask for?   Also, love the hippo fabric.

Sounds like you've got a serious bargainer on your hands.  And I would also like to use your snap press please!

Truly fine. And I agree, looks masculine too. I must, however, disagree about there being too many pictures. Kid and clothes are too cute for that!

What, my dear mistress crafter, is FOE?
