Also, for some reason, it takes me a little while to grow to love patterns. As I see examples coming through the Flickr group (a place where I spend waay too much time) I get a better feel for the patter, and then start to love it.
The Forest Path Cape was released by Oliver and S in January this year. There is also a matching adult version called Woodland Stroll.
To make the cape a little less formal, I made my version out of navy fleece.
I found the buttons at Spotlight too, but they only had one packet of two. Arrgh.
I source some more online from here.
I decided that the side button button may not be too practical for my little one. Instead I simply did a straight line stitch about 3/4 inch from the edge.
I'm really happy with it, and with the weather cooling down here in the last few days it may be in use soon. That's if I can get her to wear it.
