This is one of the easiest and tackiest things I've ever made for a Blythe. I'd say it's one of the tackiest things I've ever made, period, but helloooo, Chickenpants! Diana Vreeland once said something like, "A dash of tackiness is like a dash of paprika." Agreed. Tacky can be fun. But I digress.
Here's what you'll need:
- Polar fleece
- This pattern
- Sewing machine (totally optional)
Here's how you do it.
Download and print out two copies of the pattern.
Cut out the pattern pieces, and then cut out your fabric. Remember to cut two sleeve pieces.
Yeah, I'm using a rotary cutter, not scissors. That's because
Place the main pattern piece over the main fabric piece. You might want to pin it in place so it doesn't shift. Poke the arm slits with scissors, or a small rotary cutter if you have one.
Sew a hem around all 4 edges of the main pattern piece. Be sure to backtack, so your seams don't come undone.
Sew a hem on the bottom edge of each sleeve piece.
Fold the sleeve in half, and sew a straight line on the long open end.
To attach the sleeve, poke your finger through the arm slit. Put the sleeve on your finger. Then, pin the sleeve into place. (Not on your finger, silly.)
Finally, stitch the arm into place with a needle and thread.
Snuggly, spinster-y fun.
