… is a jacket!
But when Aki got into his dino obsession, I just had to do this easy project.
First, using a cardbord pattern, I cut diamonds from my felt cloth stash. I am glad I finally got to use those. I hoarded on felt cloth in 2011 thinking I will never get tired of sewing but I did. My husband will probably nag me for the rest of my life had I pushed thru with buying a sewing machine.
Wait. Where was I?
Oh, for this project, I needed a jacket, diamond felt cut outs and my sewing kit.
sew, sewed, saw, what is the past tense of sew?? stitched the diamonds on the back of the jacket.
Folded the diamonds and sewed (Thanks, Mr Google!) them into triangles.
And that’s it! A stegosaurus jacket for my little T-rex.
Unfortunately, just like what happened when Franco and I gave the study chair a makeover, Aki was not pleased. With this scorching heat, I don’t blame him. It took a lot of bribing, begging and finally pretending to be angry, just to get him to wear the jacket and stay still for my camera.
He was happiest when I let him take of the jacket. Oh well.
Even if my customer was not happy, I am very pleased with my DIY hoodie-saurus. Hopefully, in 9 months, when the cool breeze of December is here, he will appreciate it too.
