Well I made this based on this awesome tut
. I am giving it it's own post even though I'm not very happy with the way it turned out. I learned some things along the way which was well worth the experience, and my DD loves it, so it's all good!
Things I learned:
1) when I attempt this again, for myself, I am going to increase the length and maybe decrease the width a little. I am thinking more along the lines of 40 X 80. I will see how it turns out.
2) be careful on your fabric choice. Anything too heavy will feel suffocating. I know, because I used a (somewhat) thin black stretch velvet that I tried on (doubled) in the store and it seemed to be perfect...but in reality, by the time this is all made up your fabric is folded over four times, not just doubled, so be selective. The kiddo likes to feel snuggled in and cozy so it worked for her. I felt like I was in a new and unusual form of a coffin and couldn't wait to rip it off!
Okay, now that I've enlightened you all with my discoveries, I will post the pictures. Just be kind when you see them. They were taken at night in the house and this camera I am having to use is not the best.
She really likes to wear it as a shawl. She isn't as worried about protecting her hair as I am.
This other shots are rather blurry but you can kind of see how it looks...
I tried to crop and edit these pics but for some reason photobucket isn't saving the changes, ugh. Sorry for the horribleness!
Thanks for looking, C & C always appreciated!
