SERIOUSLY WRAPPED UP IN MY LOVE...

...I wanted to make something nice for my Baby Doll Alondra, not a Christmas present per se, but rather something to wrap her up in a little bit in her Mama's love on chilly days.  As mentioned before, I made McCall's 6209     
poncho/wrap/coat (or whatever you want to call it) for myself  twice last winter and seriously LOVE both of them to pieces.  I remember asking my daughter if she's like a poncho. She answered, "no, not really" because she just didn't think she'd wear it.  But again this year these things are trending and she is seeing more and more of them being worn.  Besides, I sort of insisted she have one and purchased this loose weave wool blend from Hancock's in the summer while it was DIRT CHEAP with this pattern and her in mind.  (Mama always knows best!.)
Really, I love this one just as much as two that I made for myself.  If it wasn't earmarked for my daughter I'd change my mind and keep it for my selfish self (haha).  Here's the trio that I mailed to her earlier this week.
I hope she knows that she is ALWAYS seriously wrapped up in my love...

  1. They are all lovely. I'm sure your daughter will be pleased with her gifts. Are you coming to NC during the Christmas break?

  3. All three look very fashionable. She's gonna be fly! I think I have that same fabric from your poncho saved up for my mom. We got it at Hancock's too!

  6. that's my fav poncho/cape pattern. I'm planning to make the gray one in a lite weight gray wool. I've made the pull over version twice.
