BERNINA Halloween 2011 Where the WIld Things Are- MAX
Added Oct 5, 2011
This is my favorite little wild thing in sherpa, attached hand claws, detachable clawed shoe covers, removable long faux fur tail with boingy springy and rigid whiskers. Fully washable. (except for the tail)
I designed the pattern, it is based on a vintage toddlers pajamas pattern with full zipper, raglan sleeves and hood. I make these in all sizes in fact, the last Max photo shows Max at Burning Man, made in 100% recycled pop bottle eco-fleece. Apparently it gets pretty cold at night in the desert so Max was an elaborate evening hoodie. Enjoy! and thanks for looking!
the very last photos show Moishe, the other wild thing, just for fun. He is not in his full glory hanging on a coat hanger, but sports a shaggy silk fur hood with teeth, horns,attached claws on hands and feet and painstakingly hand cut and stitched gray scales all over the pants. Fun little projects!
my most luxurious fabric (and most popular one) is sherpa. I do use all sorts of other fabrics ranging from flannel to organic cotton jerseys to eco-fleece. It is a very forgiving loose fitting and versatile design -suitable for most fabrics. Allow more room for ease when using woven fabrics.
