Accidental Hooded Cowel

Originally this was going to be a hoodie for Julie but since she was sleeping while I was sewing I couldn't try t on as I went. I was using one of her store bought shirts as a pattern and I made the sleeves too tight.

Instead of just scrapping the whole thing I turned it into a hooded cowel. Perfect!

It got me thinking, I bet if she had a hoodie she has grown out of I could easily make one of these with it to get a little more life out of it.

I trimmed it with lace and she loves it and that makes me happy. We got her new coat at Old Navy over the weekend, they had a sale it was only $15!

I love this owl fabric so much I wish I had gotten more. It is from Joann's and its soft stretchy knit.

Today I am linking up here:
