Pool robe with applique

Look at this child's pool robe my mom made from a bath towel for my little niece. Recognize those appliques? Mum is so smart! She didn't have any fancy buttons, so she cut some chunks out of the Calliope fabric to add some color. And put on some Fireworks for good measure. The free tutorial for making a robe like this is right here.

(And now she's back to making buckets for the shop. I had to crack down on this extra-curricular sewing and put an end to it. Hee hee.)

Wow. I was always impressed with what your mom can transform, but a bath towel looking so cute and wearable?!

Larissa Holland said...

your mom is not only amazing, she is also super prolific with the sewing. She's going to turn around our economy.

Jess said...

Yeah, single-handedly!

Your mom did a fabulous job with this transformation. It's just adorable, you're little niece is going to be stylin'.

Grandma G said...

Wow, thank you everyone!

Sorry, I already told Jess I wouldn't be making them to sell. Mass producing them would have my house floating in little loopy bits of towels, not to mention my sewing machine dying from lint clogs.

Caroline, thanks for the offer. I just may take you up on that if Jess gets too Bossy! ;-)

Jess said...

No you won't. I forbid you. Hee hee.

Grandma G said...

See what I hafta put up with?!

Megumi said...

Such a cute robe!
Next time you come to Japan, you should bring your mom together, so that my mom and your mom can be friends!

Jess said...

Yeah! They can sew all day together!
