Aeroplane appliqué

04 May

I'm just cheeky.

Yet another light jumper for Toby. This time I used a dark colored fabric that will hopefully not look dirty as quickly as the other two I made. I used the same fabrics as those in Nathan’s airplane top, but reversed them and have the aeroplanes on the inside this time. To liven up the plain outer layer a bit, I decided to try an airplane appliqué on the front. I found the pattern here on this helping little hands blog. I’m pleased with how it turned out, despite sewing it to the wrong side of the navy layer before getting it right. Nathan is now asking for a top the same, so I am resigned to making him another hoodie, though (he doesn’t know it yet) I am going to do a sea turtle appliqué instead of an aeroplane, with some bright yellow and blue sea-theme jersey on the inside.

The photos below are complete with yoghurt remains from breakfast and dribbles from Toby’s drink bottle.

Aeroplanes in the hood.

Yet another new top

  1. This looks awesome! I love how it turned out and that you have the aeroplane fabric inside the hood. I hope you don’t mind if I include this (picture and link to you) next time I do a Readers’ feature.
