Apple tops

A while back I purchased some french terry from Girl Charlee that had apples on it.  I planned on making some hoodies out of it for the girls.  Thankfully they each liked it!  Maybe because it had pink in it?  At any rate I had purchased a vest pattern for the girls last year and never got around to making it so I cut out the vest for KK.  And since we didn't need 2 of the exact same vests I cut out a hoodie for Nin.

Let me just tell you that KK loved the vest so much that she wore it to school the first day she could!

Pattern: DMK warm hooded vest in size 9 ( you can find her patterns on Etsy!)  This pattern was well written and easy to complete.  After I had the vest cut out, I sat down and finished it in under an hour!  Yay for that!!!  I did add snaps at the top instead of buttons or a tie. 

P.S.  This is a vest, she was just wearing a long sleeve pink shirt under it!  The vest is fully lined though and in this one, it is a dark pink lining so it makes it hard to tell where the vest starts and the shirt ends!

Nin's hoodie was not complicated but it has just a little flare to it. Not the usual zip up hoodie, it's more of a pullover.

Pattern: Ottobre Design 4/2007 #34 in size 134. This girl is now in the same size clothes as her sister and grew about an inch and a half in 4 months this summer.

She actually liked hers so much that she has worn it multiple times in the last 10 days!

These girls can't ever hold still when I pull out the camera. They immediately start posing...


Even after these 2 tops, I still have about 1/2 a yard of this material left.  Not enough to make anything for my girls.  Maybe doll clothes?  A top for Averie?
