Is that something under the bed?
I think it's drooling!
Never fear, a friend is near!
When this challenge was announced I figured reversible baby clothing would be a great way to enter, so I looked up baby shoe patterns but eventually dropped that idea as being way too fiddly, and settled on making a jumper. I had lots of opposite ideas (a whole list to be precise), but settled on the one that I already had all the materials for. I took some inspiration from this photo
that I had seen around the interweb, but realized that in this house we don't tend to sleep with teddy bears. The little one sleeps with a piggy and a zebra (the piggy being the brave one of the pair), so I paired her brave sleepytime friend with its opposite a monster under the bed.
Now for the clearer shots:
Made from pink corduroy left over from a quilt I made my now 8 year old God daughter when she was born and some polar fleece. I used a button for the nose because the little one loves buttons (and i thought it looked kind of cute)
With her dear friend Willi:
Close up of the Piggy Face:
What's a piggy without a tail?
Made from a very furry, muppet-ish knit fabric I've had kicking around for years. The face is made from polar fleece.
Acting very monster-ish
The mouth is a pocket so the monster can actually eat things
I used a McCall's pattern that I've made it a few times before as gifts. It's a bit big as I'm hoping to get some wear out of it before it is outgrown (and to be honest was in too much of a hurry to fold down the pattern).
All in all I had a great time actually taking a challenge idea and completing it for once. It was a lot of fun and I hope to do it again.
