no, it's not a mirage .. I actually made something recently which is quite an achievement. A couple of weeks ago it was warm enough that I thought S. was in need of a lighter jacket. I've been meaning to make the Baby-in-the-hood jacket from Anna Maria Horner's Handmade Beginnings book for a while now, and so this last weekend I decided to finally take out my sewing machine again.
I made the 6-9 months size which is a bit large on her now so I'm hoping it lasts until summer. The pattern is quite easy and I think I spent a total of 3 or 4 hours on it, and it turned out so nice I might just make another one next fall.
Here's the back:
Also it's reversible:
And some modelled shots .. S. was entranced by the fabric, so I think she won't mind wearing this for quite some time.
