Even though my tee is very simple but I can't finished it earlier. (as same as my sew along at last month, http://anapprenticehousewife.blogspot.com/2013/07/my-attempt-to-make-outfit-with-secret.html)
|My up-cycled raglan tee for Secret Squirrel Sew along, August|
In case you're wonder what is the "Secret Squirrel", please follow this link. And you can see others beautiful creations at this flickr group.
This months, my interpretations are as below
|My interpretations for 5 acorns.|
Acorn no. 1 Tangerine & Acorn no. 5 Something old are combined. As I used up-cycled tee for this project. Both strips and solid tangerine in this project are from my tee (I was also use this solid in my last month sew along. I use the recess raglan pattern from The alphabet collection by See Kate Sew. This pattern is awesome and fun to mix up. I'm sure a lot more tee will come out from this pattern.
Acorn no. 3 Anne of Green Gable. I'm a fan for this novel. I thought I've read this book since I was at grade 7. Still have a copy of both Anne of Green Gable and Anne of Avonlea. Since I have zero knowledge for fashion on that era, I never understand what are those "puffed sleeves" Anne want so much. But it's the only clue about Anne's fashion which I recognized. So, I googled "Anne of Green Gable puffed sleeves" and found this...
Oh dear Anne! It's lovely and unique. But I decided to make less dramatic puffed sleeves for my little girl. (too less puffed?, it's my first time, see)
|My little puff-bottom sleeves|
Acorn no. 2 patch and Acorn no. 4 Australia are combined to a kangaroo patch front pocket. It's the first idea that pop up in my head for Acorn no. 4. I also considered others option like kangaroo or koala patch on tee but this one is easiest and practical.

You may notice the heart pendant and necklace. My almost 4 years old made it herself with beads. She is really in to this craft lately.
Well! that are all 5 acorns in to one tee. Do you like it as much as me :)
I've also added this project to the "Flip this pattern" sew-along series. This month (September) is about flipping the whole Alphabet collection from Pattern Anthology. I'm sure that a lot of wonderful creations will pop up during this month. Please visit FrancesSuzanne blog sew-along page to admire.
Thank you for stop by, I really love to hear from you.
