This week miss J only had two days of school. She is here the rest of the week so we are spending lots of girl time together (with baby sis too of course). I realized today that it was the last day of January and that we needed to finish up her designed and made by J project. This month she went with an easy design.
She drew a cute little caterpillar. I let her pick out the fabric and the color yarn she wanted for the antennae.
After we finished him, she went and found this butterfly she had and started talking about Cat-cat being in a cocoon and going through metamorphosis. So of course I had to make a cocoon!
I used some vintage chenille I had and just created a simple drawstring bag big enough to hold Cat-cat.
I wanted to show you a little of the process too. Since this was a drawing that I could actually make into a pattern with no changes, I just scanned it in the computer and enlarged it. Then I printed it out and we cut it out.
