I have been on a bamboo kick, as of late. I LOVE bamboo knit/jersey. It is so buttery soft, it washes beautifully... and I am told it is environmentally sustainable. Can't knock that!
Recently I made myself a purple bamboo dress & I have been loving it. With the left over purple, I decided to make my mom a tshirt hoody. I bought some pink bamboo to make her some sort of top and have not been inspired until now. After making my dress and seeing I had a teensy bit left over, I was ready. Pink AND purple!? But of course!
(And... I must admit, I do have another project queued up, but when inspiration struck for me on this one, I justified moving onto this because I did not feel like re-threading my machine... and hey! The purple was already in there! ha
My mom's style is kind of sporty and youthful, so I figured a hoody would be her sort of thing. A cozy hood was in order!
It has 3/4 sleeves, which should prove practical for spring...
(Crazy face picture!)
And it has a little double heart pocket, about the right size for a debit card and cell phone!
(Hopefully she likes it!)
Anyway, I can't stress enough how wonderful bamboo is. You should make something bamboo for your mom too!
