Red and Blue....

I managed to finish Master 9's dressing gown last Thursday!
Yes, I actually finished it in one go; no leaving hems or hand sewing to be finished at a later date!
Whilst cutting it out, from the stash of polar fleece, I realised that I wouldn't quite have enough red so I added navy blue into the mix for the pockets, cuffs and belt.

As soon as Master 7 saw it, he said he had to have one too. Only problem is, the stash only has purple now......

And more red's and blue's for a custom order for 3 dolls, yet to be finished.
We had a hectic ,but wonderful, weekend; friends for dinner Friday, parents stayed over Saturday and a beautiful "Slow Food Harvest lunch" in the local botanic gardens on Sunday. Bliss.

I think the blue trim looks great, breaks the red up a bit. Master 7 must be very happy with it. Yes I suppose you HAVE to make another one now, my kids are the same! Your dolls are super cute, take care, Maryann
