Audrey Cape From Run & Play

I saw this great up-cycle over on Project Run & Play, great contest that you need to check out! The women behind Simple Simon are amazing and yesterday I finally had a little energy/ gave up on cleaning for the day to sew something. It took me a little over an hour, from start to finish and it turned out lovely! Adelle doesn't cooperate very well when it comes to taking pictures, I think I need a few lessons in it! It's fully lined with a lovely copper lining and the fabric is via Grandma Jan's stash.

This project makes me want to force Adelle to be Sherlock Holmes for Halloween, but I think she's pretty set on a frilly purple dress with puffed sleeves! Random thought: I was at Target today and they are charging $30 for a dress up dress for little girls. UGG! So glad I know how to sew, I may just be really cheap but no way would I pay that! Do your kids have their halloween outfits planned out?

  1. Great fabric choice! You have inspired me to try one for my little girlies. Elizabeth featured your beautiful cape on Simple Simon and Co the other day here: http://simplesimonandco.blogspot.com/2011/10/sew-featured.html
