Baby's First Star Wars Jacket

For a friend's son's 1st birthday, i thought that the cute jacket featured in Bend the Rules Sewing would be a perfect gift. Instead of using jersey (which makes the pattern even easier), i used some of our Star Wars bed sheet supply. Using this fabric instead of the jersey, i did have to finish the edges so i made the pattern just a smidge bigger than it called for. Otherwise, i followed the pattern exactly and think it's pretty cute. The only downfall - too bad the Ewoks don't turn up better.

As Amy says, it really is a simple pattern that takes no time at all. It should be featured in one of those 'Last Minute Gift' books, cuz it barely took me 2 hours to make. Now i just have to wait until little Elliot samples it!
As the wrapping, and an added bonus, I made an accompanying drawstring pouch to keep it in as well - so i could also use up some of the 'Star Wars: Return of the Jedi' pieces.
