So Miss Jenna has been eyeing some fleece at Walmart for a while. This girl loves elephants if you remember me saying something about it a while ago. If not…I’m telling you now…lol…she is ELEPHANT-OBSESSED. She loves elephants so much that I made her a Pinterest board a while back so I could collect elephant images for her.
So imagine the mommy points I scored for bringing home “My most favorite fabric in the world”.
So I decided to go with the color blocked option with zippered side pockets. This girl also loves her pockets! I used the zippers that were in my stash (one teal and one pink) and they were not invisible zippers. You definitely need that style if you want them to lay correctly.
I also decided to size up. I want this cozy elephant fabric to last for a while. Recently a friend asked “When did Jenna get so big!?!” So it’s not just me who realizes this kid is growing at super speed…lol. She has already made plans to wear it to school on Monday and I’m glad that it has decided to be cold enough so that she can.
Such a cute pattern and was easy to put together! I’m hoping the boys let me make one for them too.
Thanks for letting me sew up this, it was fun!
Until next time,
