Fall is here…Winter is coming

I’ve kept myself quiet busy especially with sewing for Elliott. For some reasons when the weather gets gray and dark, I start knitting. I don’t touch my knitting needles all summer. So this year, it was no different, rain and dark Sundays at home made be check my wool stash and I started knitting again.  I bought last year yarn, with the intention to knit a hat for Elliott from a pattern I found on Ravelrly, but I didn’t have the guts to do this until this year.

The first one I did was too small for Elliott, so I ended up doing another one and “yeah” success, as you can see in the picture.

I also sewed a new west for him, for the days for the weather is in between. Not cold enough for the winter jacket but not warm enough for only a fleece jacket.

I used my own pattern, which I used for the Denim Jacket I created a while ago. I lined the jacket with fleece to keep it nice and warm. The outside is out of a polyester print. I added a little patch on the chest, which I bought at vintage mall. I also added pocket, which is not functional at all. Sometimes you just need  to add a little accessoire.
