I had forgotten how fun it is to sew with fleece; it had been a while.
This balaclava hat was made using Green Pepper F893 pattern, purchased at Jo-Ann Fabrics.
It looks kind of creepy on the iron. A little bit sci-fi-ish.
It looks better on Raggedy Ann.
It looks best on its intended owner, the birthday boy himself. We have a group of family members with birthdays in January and February, so this weekend we all converged on our family cottage in Tomahawk, Wisconsin.
I also made him some flannel pants from New Look 6321 pattern. Matched the plaid, of course. Have you ever noticed how ready-to-wear items have unmatched plaids? I guess this puts me in the snobbish group "people obsessed with matching plaid and scorning the cheap stuff that doesn't match."
The pockets were cut from an old shirt of my dad's, to put a little piece of history into the new garment.
We had tiramisu for our birthday cake. Check out this video. Tried a new recipe and it turned out pretty yummy.
