Reversible wrap vest

Hanami_Weste_003This cute wrap vest was an other make of kids clothes week, I didn`t find the time to blog about during the week. It`s also a pattern hack of the Hanami dress by Straight Grain.

Hanami_Weste_001 The nice print is from michael miller. And lucky me, I found just the perfect shade of blue in my stash, to suit the tinny dots in the print. I don`t know why, I didn`t take some pictures of the reverse side.


It`s such a convenient piece of clothing. It already got a lot of use. I like the colors. And it`s perfect for cooler summer evenings. It`s warm around the waist because of the two layers. It`s suitable over a dress or just a tee or even over a onesies. It makes every outfit looking so darling. Don`t you think?

If you`re looking for a free pattern like this one, have a look at Craftiness is not optional. I`ve been inspired by, but my printer was out-of-order. Therefor, I had to do it myself.

Hanami Flip

Hanami_Pulli_001That`s my kcw project nr. 2. Better late than never.

And this is probably the first picture of our fourth family member on this blog. Isn`t she darling? My little girl really love her `big sister`. We had so much fun taking this pictures.


But back to the sewing. The sweater it`s made by the Hanami Pattern from An of Straight Grain. It`s a little flip. The original version of the Hanami top has a crossed back option. I altered the pattern, so this sweet little detail appears on the front now. The long sleeves are also a personal addition. I`m really happy with the fit of this versatile pattern. I`ve already made a classic one, have a look here. And an other flip i`m going to blog about the next days.

The fabric I used is simply apples by Hamburger Liebe. It`s so soft and nice. I had it in my stash like forever. Just didn`t know what to do with it. It`s such a strong print. But I think that fabric was just waiting for this project.


Of course, she had to try this gross bone in the end. At least the part who wasn`t already processed by our dog.
