Narwhals become....

a jacket!

 My friend GMarie suggested that I make a jacket, and then pointed me at a pattern - Simplicity 8759, from their "Baby Gear" line.

I didn't bother to try to gather a contrasting fleece to make the ruffle on the hood and sleeves; pregathered eyelet lace looked good to me, and saved plenty of time.  I also skipped a couple of their other instructions, because I felt that they would disturb the softness of the coat.

Don't you just love the narwhal on the back?  There's another one on each sleeve, too.

Finally, you'll indulge me; I can't get enough of the cuteness of this jacket, so I found a teddy bear to model it.

Happy Wednesday, everyone!

Edited to add: I forgot to say that this is for Nora!
