New cloth for cabbage patch kid

My granddaughter Lena came to my home the other day with the cabbage patch kid of her mom that had no clothes on. So we decided to make him new clothes. I had kept the sleeves and the back of an old shirt of Lena. I used the sleeves as they were for the legs. Then I sewed the legs on another piece of fabric which ended on the waist where I put elastic.

For the shirt I cut a rectangular piece from the back. I appliqued at the front a piece of fabric chosen by Lena and then I sewed the side seams. I put elastic in the waist and around the neck, because as you can see his head is big and I did not want to add buttons. I think Iphicles (the cabbage patch kid has got that name after then the day Lena learned the history of Hercules) is happy with his new clothes. Lena as well ……..

  1. Συγγνώμη για την καθυστέρηση, αλλά οι δυσκολίες το μήνα που πέρασε ατελείωτες και το blog παρατημένο. Σ' ευχαριστώ πολύ για το σχόλιο. Τα λαχανόπαιδα (δύο τον αριθμό-ζευγαράκι) ήταν της κόρης μου και τώρα παίζει μ' αυτά η εγγονή μου. Roger και κάτι σχετικό για την κόρη μου (που τα απέκτησε σε μεγαλύτερη ηλικία), Ιφικλής και Αλκμήνη για την επηρεασμένη από την ιστορία του Ηρακλή εγγονή μου.
