I have a million projects running through my mind and I don't have the time to fit them all in, so I am jumping around between a few currently. Not a good thing, because that leaves the potential of something being left in the WIP so long that it is outgrown before it is made. Sigh.
But first, a project that had to be finished by today (and I got done just in time). My nieces joint birthday party is this evening and they are both obsessed with Frozen (but what under 10 year old girl isn't?). I was brainstorming ideas when it came to me, capes. Not only do they love Frozen, but they also love dressing up.
One likes Elsa and one likes Anna, so I made one of each. Elsa's was super easy, a yard of glittery tulle, some ribbon and gathering, no hemming required.
For Anna's I used the Oliver + S School Bus Tee. I used some interlock from Joann, some black bobbles and a heart clasp.
The girls super love them, but understand that they are going to A + C (or at least I hope they understand, ha!). I showed them the fabric I have for theirs and that helped a little, though they keep asking if theirs are done yet. I am making them slightly different too, ie Elsa in a different fabric and Anna with a different clasp so that just in case all four girls wear theirs at the same time we can tell them apart.
Hopefully cousins like them, if not I know two little girls who will take them off their hands...
