My kids are funny. They have been anti bathrobe for, well, forever! But I got a pretty new bathrobe for Christmas and since then, KC has felt he should have a bathrobe. I pointed out that he had a perfectly usable brown dinosaur bathrobe. He said it was too brown. Too small. Too lightweight. I was not about to invest money in something he will likely not wear a lot. And the fates smiled on me when yesterday a co-worker gave me a bag of clothing her son had outgrown. Inside was--you guessed it! A beautiful nearly new bathrobe. (apparently it is not just my kids who do not wear bathrobes with any regularity!) KC was in his glory. Now, Miss Lissa was in a snit.
Yes, the pretty princess wanted a bathrobe. She is even less likely to wear a bathrobe as she is more prone to being warm than KC. So I told her she could have KC's old bathrobe. The lip curled. "DINOSAURS?" she asked with horror. "Really, Ooma, what are you thinking?" Indeed.
So I said the dinos would disappear. From K's small fabric stash I cut batik hearts. K appliqued them by machine over the offending dinosaurs. I found red ruffle trim. Red is Lissa's current favorite color and also the color of my bathrobe. I sewed it on top of the bathrobe's cuffs. To add bling, I took fabric paint and decorated all the hearts. There is not a dino to be seen. It will be ready for her to wear tomorrow morning. Anyone want to place bets on how many times it is worn? LOL
