Possum Pixie (11/52)

I really do enjoy sewing things for little ones, the size means they are often finished quickly which is always a bonus! I had the pleasure of making a little pixie hood coat for my nephew who I met for the first time recently. He lives in a warm land and I wanted to make sure he had something snugly to wear while he was here.

I've made so many pixie hood coat now that they do come together so quickly, I could make one in my sleep. This one I made from a thrifted jumper, a super soft Possum and Merino blend and for the lining my daughter (a proud big cousin) chose a Kiwi print fabric.

I'd forgotten how fast little legs move, especially when they are trying to keep up with big cousins, so photos are limited, but I think you can tell it would be a cosy to wear. It's generous in size so hopefully will last a few Winters, perhaps another visit to NZ too. Well an Aunt can only hope right?


  1. Adorable and such a lovely and generous gift Louana xx

  2. Such a clever idea. Your nephew looks so snug and happy.

  3. This one looks super snug, I love the idea of the possum... Must keep an eye out for some on my op shop travels. It is certainly time for winter sewing again! Xx

  4. Meeting nieces and or nephews for the first time *heart melt*
    I love the way you've upcycled and that you're brave enough to sew . . . I lost my bravery along the way somewhere gggrrrr
