My first Non-Sock sewing job! (not too good)

Pulled out the sewing machine today to create an "outfit" for my sock creature. One of my co-workers is very sick and I wanted to give her a creature. I call her the "Alpha Male" of the office so we thought it would be funny to give it some camo.

I went to the Goodwill store looking for some Camo fabric. I found this old hunting vest. I washed it and it had something crinkly inside. Apparently the crinkly stuff broke apart and got all over the dryer (that is another story)

So I liked the cool pockets on the vest (Jeff says they are for your shot gun shells). So I ended up making it into a romper. Thank goodness it is supposed to look a little "off".... because it does. His new name is "Mobile Romper Unit Alpha"

I will probably put some very girly things in these pockets for my co-worker. Like lip gloss and nail polish. I mean he is wearing a ROMPER for goodness sake!

Thanks for taking a look!


  1. In honor of your adorable camo is an idea for a new desktop!


  2. hahaha love it.... which co-worker is this for... please say JL :)

  3. I adore this romper! I need one for myself since I hate aprons that tie around my neck!

  4. Oh yes, and we are sure that Mobile Romper Unit Alpha loves the romper. Monsters love outfits!
