So Secret Squirrel has been trotting the globe giving out 5 acorns a month. It's a fun sewing challenge and you can read more about it here. The 5 acorns are just 5 things that you are supposed to tie in with the outfit you create somehow and I've been wanting to sew along, but always have a ton of other stuff going on. This month I decided was too good to pass up.
Here are the ones from this past month:
Those would be 1. Where the Wild Things Are, 2. Blue, 3. David Bowie, 4. Pockets and 5. Great Britain.
Now here is my outfit, which you can read more about over at Sew Cool for the Tween Scene. Can you see my 5 acorns incorporated in the outfit? I leave the key at the bottom, but here are the pictures:
Where the Wild Things Are=Fuzzy vest, reminiscent of the Hairy wild things
Blue=blue on the button of the jeans and a blue zipper (just because I only had a navy blue one:)
David Bowie=White ruffly vest (think of the movie Labyrinth)
Pockets=on the pants with
Great Britain=a flag stitched out on each back pocket
How do you think I did with the acorns? And the best thing of all is that Sophia loves the outfit and needed each of these things (ok not the vest, but she had asked for a furry vest).
