The idea came this summer, while we were camping at the coast and S was walking around in a berber-y (not to be confused with Burberry) sweat shirt.
"He looks like an ewok."
And the idea was born.
I got the pattern at JoAnn's for 99 cents... and started sewing my first clothing item in well over 15 years (and those were with the assistance of my faithful 4-H leader).
But it went well. Apparently I can follow more than just a quilting pattern.
You saw the beginnings here... (when he was dancing around the house with glee).
I contemplated leaving him a bear.
But found a really old and worn out shirt of Jay's to use as Wicket's hood.
Besides, he walked like an ewok anyway.
I decided to make the hood removable... which turned out good and bad.

and cute Steiger photos
Mommy was free to show Steiger it really wasn't so bad after all.
He did wear it for the big night thankfully.
In the end though... it was all about this house:
and the sucker he found on the other side.
