Cup of Joe

Starting the blogging year off with my last strike-off of 2017, for a round opening today at Moonbeam Textiles.  The round is called Fantastic Creatures and it featured this adorable coffee drinking unicorn.  Luckily Kris gave us enough time to get these sewn up, as December was just crazy busy.

No outside pictures of these…it is arctic cold outside now!

She likes a very creamer-laden coffee occasionally, and she is definitely not a morning person.  Who doesn’t think coffee is magical?? 😉

I used various knits on this pattern that I drafted.  I have a loose fitting top I drafted for her last month, so I traced a copy of it and cut it apart to have this style.  All seams are topstitched so they lay flat.

I asked for an adult panel of the print, as it gives you a bit more fabric to work with.  This is a fat half of fabric.

She was pretty happy with this comfy outfit.  The black and white supplex was from Zenith & Quasar Fabric and the black is a bamboo jersey from Nature’s Fabrics.

The pants are a nice comfy sport polar fleece.  I bought it several years back, and I think it was something like Nike brand.  It is really nice and thick, and it should not pill at all.  It should wear very well.  Pattern is my own.

I actually thought they would be several inches too long for her, but they were just about right!

This round is open from January 1-15, so go check out the cute creatures. 🙂

I love to hear comments! Sometimes comments hit my spam, so be patient. I will find it! xoxo
