What’s that you say?
“That is so fucking cute, Kelly-goddamned-Hogaboom!” Yeah. Well at least I think so. In fact the only thing I liked better that picturing this bunting from the very second I saw the fabric at Hart’s website was every detail of construction. Like underlining it with fusible wadding and appliqueing bright orange stars and then basting in the pumpkin-orange zipper and waxing thread to finish with handsewing while watching a soccer game:
and of course the super-super soft and deep green fleece I lined the whole thing with.
Oh right, forgot to mention – I thought I’d make another one, a bit less sweet and a bit more gruesome:
My sewing room and I are like a couple honeymooners. I can’t wait to get back there and mess around. OK, ew. So what I really mean is, I’m having such a wonderful time making exactly what I want. And you know what I want? More babies, out and about, everywhere. These buntings are so warm they can be out all night trick or treating. Until they fall asleep while nursing in the sling.
I’ve put these abovepictured items up for sale: All Hallows’ Eve and Zombi in my wee little boutique. I’ve already got my next projects – seasonal for the approaching cold weather – out on the slab.
Deeply, truly good times.
Was the kitty with the jack-o-lantern head at the top of the zipper intentional? I like it!
…and hear I am wondering why I have a Cranberries song stuck in my head. My oldest loved that song when she was little.
If only if only! Awesome job Kelly! =]
It’s nuts, how great this is.
I love wadding too.
Ha, no! But there were some fortunate accidents in construction (NERD AWARD for anyone who gets lyric reference without googling!). Incidentally I usually match center front plackets but in this case, since the entire body is cut from one piece, I would have had to add a back seam, and – nah.
& I OD’d on that excellent Cranberries album in college!
Thanks! Yes, I just for the first time used the fusible wadding. I am totally digging it!
P.S. You and your poison green!
Fucking awesome. These make my boobs hurt for wanting another baby, seriously!(I’m weird.) Which makes me all the more sad since that ain’t happenin’, but still….
What can I say.
Thank you! Yes, my baby-sewing is making Ralph and I talk about babies a lot.
you totally rock, seriously completely friggin awesome:)
Thanks S. – I’m working hard on some new pieces and will be posting those soon!
I am not even pregnant and I want one of these! They are adorable, and make my womb ache.
“adorable”, I was going for SCARY! Dang. Back to the drawing board.
