Child's Jacket - Promised



Is this just too cute, or what?? What fun I had with this one! I actually started with an adult XL sweatshirt - and used it AS FABRIC. I had some 're-do's so ultimately, I used most all of it - except for the lower band - which is safe in my stash of bands for another jacket. The 'looping' is the key embellishment in my new pattern to be released 'soon' by the name of PROMISED. Surely - I'll have it by mid June or so. The multi-color batik trim is from Lollipops Bindings.

Took off - AWAY FROM ALL WORK AND EMAIL for the Memorial Day weekend. Drug my hubby back to the Paducah, KY area where we stayed in a delightful Bead & Breakfast - Wildflowers Inn in Calvert City. Was fun to get away...

Now that this little jacket is done - and instructions written and ready to ship off to Creative Needle for an article and pattern insert in their Sept/Oct. issue - I can really attack the basement - which will yield LOTS more of my Creative Sweatshirt Jacket kits. Those are such fun to put together....

But, but, but Granny duty comes FIRST!! My 3 year old grandson, Cole, is the light of my life and while we live closeby - I've promised myself time with him is a priority! All grannies out there agree, I'm sure...
