K 14 bday
K turned 14 on Sunday and this was one of her birthday gifts.  (She had asked for a robe after seeing MG's.)  After cake and presents, K had a friend over and was hanging out in her room.  I was cleaning up my sewing room when K started hollering for me to come see something.  I walked in to her room and she and her friend pointed to the guitar strap and the new robe, amazed that they matched.  They wanted to know how in the world did I make a robe that matched K's guitar strap.  They had no clue that I had sewn the strap!!lol  I got a good chuckle out of that one.;)

I'm not quite done with the blue terry.  There's a pattern for a hooded baby towel in the same issue as the robe and I have just enough left over terry cloth to make one.  Our extended family is growing...K and I are attending a baby shower for her cousin's wife on Sunday.  I'm planning of giving the towel and some baby washcloths.  Maybe something else too...we'll see!


  1. Looks very cozy. I think I would like a new robe very much.

  2. Happy birthday, K! What a whimsical and snuggly looking robe. Perfect for lazy afternoon guitar strumming...with matching strap, of course! ;-)

  3. Looks like such a cozy robe! Happy happy birthday, K!

  4. It does look like soft, cuddly terry cloth! I've never used an ottobre pattern. Isn't it funny how kids are amazed by the fact that we can MAKE some of the things we buy?

  5. Looks so warm and snuggly, Cindy! Just what I need in our almost Winter weather. Love the story about the guitar strap.

  6. The robe looks perfect for a young lady her age. It is bright and cheerful and looks wonderful on her. She really looks so grown up in that picture! Happy Birthday, K!

  7. It's a gorgeous robe, and how funny that they didn't realise that the strap could be sewn! I have never sewn a robe, but they're a rest choice for gifts :-)

  8. too funny! the robe looks fantastic

  9. Very nice robe! And a belated Happy Birthday to your oldest!! Almost shares a birthday with our oldest but 4 years earlier :)
