Little Red’s Riding Hood

Well, I’ve been working on a little project for my teeny one-year old…(I can’t believe it’s been a year!)  I’m planning on showing it to you next week: I’m really excited about it!  But sort of in conjunction with this secret project that may or may not have anything to do with a certain classic fairy tale, I felt like my little Scarlet (whom we call Little Red around these parts) needed to have a red riding hood.
I tried to just find someone that I knew that had one I could borrow, but to no avail: so, when all else fails, make your own, right?  I had this {vintage} pattern that I got from a garage sale) sitting around waiting for me to try it.  I didn’t even know if all the pieces were in there. 
 {And, I might remind you that I can count on one hand the number of times I’ve used a real “pattern’ with brown tissue paper and everything.  they scare me a little.  }
 I also had the red fabric, the yardage of the turquoise to go inside and the trim…even though I really didn’t want to attempt this scary pattern, fate was in my favor. (free, hello?)
Isn’t this such a fun pattern?!?  I kinda want to try the romper, too!
The original pocket was different, but I wanted a lined pocket…so I made that part up.
 I love that her little friend ‘Wolfie’, that she likes to chew on, fits snuggly in her side pocket.
I can’t wait to show you the reason I made her this little scarlet riding hood…get excited for next week!
Any guesses on what the secret project might be?
