I've been creating ponchos. I've wanted to execute this project for some time, since I'd spotted mum's old woollen blankets in the cupboard!
I've really enjoyed this one. I can't wait to show you all the whole collection in the shop. Despite moving away from mum's woollen blankets (my 2 year old tell me they were too itchy), the concept is sound and looks beautiful as a finished piece. I've trimmed the poncho in beautiful fabrics, stunning hand-dyed felt circles or coloured leather circles become a feature, the neckline is trimmed in a contrasting cotton bias and finished with a hand-covered button, loop and leather piece.
These will be available in MissChief Maker store from March 2010 in a range of sizes from 1 to 7 years.
