A Robe for Paige!

Dana, from MADE just finished her Beach Robe (made from a towel!) pattern for kids. Oh my! How cute it is!! She asked me and a few others to test the pattern for her in advance, and here is the one I made for Paige:

 She loves it!!

 Great for the beach (or lake)


Great for the bath!
It was perfect because Paige hates being cold after a bath and can't keep her towel on, so I've been looking for an inexpensive robe for her. :O)

I have to tell you this: I almost peed my pants when Dana asked me to test her pattern for her. I love Dana. Love her! So, I didn't really want to say "nooooo thank you!!", but I was seriously afraid. I DON'T do patterns. They hate me, I hate them, we stay away from each other. But she sent me the pdf, I swallowed hard, put on my big-girl pants and tried it out. Oh my goodness! It was so easy!! And now I love Dana even more. :o) I want to make infinity of these robes. Paige needs at least 5, right?

Anyway, you can check out the pattern here if you wish! It has instructions for lots of different versions, so you can really make it your own. It's fun!

And! Speaking of patterns, I'm almost done with the fox. It's not as fancy as Dana's, but hey, I'm not Dana. I'm Disney! And this will be my first pattern! I'm excited.

So have a great night! Happy Father's Day tomorrow!!

Love,
Disney

  7. YOu did such a great job. I was so excited when Dana posted this pattern only to learn that it doesn't go up to my girls' size which is an 8. The one that you made come out so nicely that I might just have to buy it and try sizing it up.

  17. DKB: Paige is a 4T (max) and I made the largest size. As you can see, there's plenty of growing room! I think next time I'll make the smaller one.

  20. I almost fell off the couch when I saw the picture of Paige sitting on the little stool...I had one of those when I was little! My parents still have it in there hall bath for my kids to use. "Step up, I'll help you work and play, or sit and rest on a busy day."

    So glad to see you posting again!

  25. Well, Paige is absolutely great here. I like the design and color of her robe, truly adorable. There's no much detail on the robe which I admire most.

  26. That is adorable! I just had to mention, that I used to have that exact step stool when I was her age!! I have no idea what happened to in, but since I am short, I used it up until I moved out of my parents house at 20!
