Bad Wolf!

Bad Wolf

Sorry, no ‘Doctor Who’ here. Wrong “Bad Wolf.”

We’re talking about THE Bad Wolf. That menacing creatures featured in so many children’s stories. But who knew how stylish and cool he was, till now?

The Bad Wolf Vest from Puperita is a fun and super cool way for (not so) bad little boys and girls to channel their inner wolf. This fully-lined vest is simple to make, without being short on style. And it can be sewn with knits and/or wovens, so it’s versatile too.

As always, I let Liam pick out his fabric. My kids are always more excited for the clothes I sew them when they are part of the design process. Plus, he’s got pretty good taste for a 8 year old 😉

I told him to look for fabric that reminded him of a wolf. He picked out this super soft and lightweight, heathered grey french terry from Knitpop (Got it in a mystery sweater box. If you haven’t snagged one of those yet, go get one. You won’t be sorry). And for the lining, he really liked this jersey knit Aztec print from Raspberry Creek Fabrics. Nice choice!

Not to mention, with such soft cozy material, he’s ready to play in comfort all day. He can do what boys do best….climb fences. Ha ha, what is it with boys and fences anyway? They just can’t resist 🙂

We even used that Aztec print to line the inseam pockets for a little unexpected pop of color. 😉
