Little Red Zizi Hood

I set out to make Z a Little Red Riding Hood cloak when she was really little; like 2.  But, the pattern proved to be very high maintenance, and by the time I was actually ready to try again, she had changed sizes, so the I didn't have enough of the original red fabric.  Enter Try #2!  I decided to use fleece this time, and just use the really cute lining material for the hood and pockets.  

I had this pattern (McCall's 6431) in my stash, so I decided to Frankenstein together the parts that I liked.  We opted for the version with the hood and no zipper, and throw in the heart pockets too.

I think it turned out pretty cute!

This is where she started flapping her arms like a chicken.

She really loves it!  She's wearing it all the time now, and I think after cutting out everything, it took me 2 days to put it together. Here are some of my favorite bits:

Pocket detail- how cute are those fairytale bunnies?

Heart clasp detail
Now I'm trying to justify making a cloak for Sage... maybe with a wolf tail? Or bear ears?
