It’s Murphy’s birthday!!!
I cant believe my little munchkin is 6! I could never express how much I love and adore you my little man!
For my little love bug, I made a very special knight in dull gray armor hoodie.
The pattern is from Charming Doodle, and a great pattern. easy to follow, unique and fun. I made the size 6 , and we have room to grow, which is what I need for a summer birthday present of cold weather wear. Other than camping and night vision goggle wearing, this hoodie wont get much use until September. But I am glad I made one wearable muslin, as I am making another for Hawley in July for his bday 🙂
I was a bit flumoxed to find that my normally overflowing stash was out of gray ribbing. So I substituted green. And then, I had purchased a too short zipper, and I had the right length in my stash onl in a dark dark blue. sheesh. and THEN! I only had 4 buttons with a coat of arms on them, and only 4 small buttons for the hood armor. Stash Fail! I also had a little trouble with the hood. It just didnt line up right. This caused the zipper and seam line to be off set just enough to irritate me. I’ll do it a little different next time.
Murphy is not particular of these things, and is cute no matter what. and he really likes it even though he is swimming in it.
