When I found the fabric, I was inspired to finish it up right way since the hard part was already done. (I despise cutting the pattern pieces out of fabric!)
The faux fur was so slippery it was probably a good thing I waited, because I was able to use the new Even Feed/Walking Foot I gifted to myself for Christmas. I am certain it made sewing on this slippery fabric easier. The fax fur sheds like crazy where you cut it and is still flying everywhere. I had to stop and vacuum twice! (I swear, I just saw a little piece floating by as I am typing and every time I come in here the tip of my nose still itches.)
The vest pattern is Simplicity 6019, I got it during one of the $.99 pattern sales and the fabric came from Joann’s. As for a pattern review, this pattern is super easy and it came out cute, cute, cute. So, yes, I reccommend it.
Sewing the vest did not take long at all and I even put together a little matching Quilted Muff. The muff is a little too wide IMO, so I am going to take it apart and shorten it about 2 inches. I took pictures and will get a tutorial up for the muff in the next few days.
Can you see where she gave herself a haircut? She told me she wanted her bangs shorter. The clips are holding back the weirdest parts. I haven’t done much to it yet other than hold my scissors vertically and try to blend the different lengths of the bangs. I didn’t do a very good job either, but it will have to do for now.
We had a good time taking these pictures today. What am I going to do when she goes off to school? (sniff, sniff.)
I will be linking this post up to some of the linky parties found here.
