|Lyvy and the Sjkald hood|
|Once I convinced her to leave it on,|
she didn't want to take it off!
|Back heart stitched in yellow twisted silk, with|
Viking runes that say
"Be warned, my daddy carries a big stick"
The deadline for the challenge was May 31st, and I finished the very next day late in the evening but still hadn't gotten around to posting any pictures so I present..
The Lyvy Sjkold hood!!
|Front side with 3 knotted heart pattern|
The only changes I made were the following:
- I did not include a drawstring at the face level. I cut the center section pretty specific so there isn't much room for the hood to flop around anyways so I didn't see a need.
- I graded the neck opening about 1/2 to make it easier to get on and off, without destroying the fabric at her chin level.
- I cut the cox comb section on a slope and whipstitched it together rather than just whipstitch from the inside and leave the excess fabric in the hood. Made it easier to get the excess fabric out.
- I added a tassel at the top of the hood, and might add a bell, just because I felt like it and its for my toddler.
