Crafting Along with needle and thREAD

This week the latest Nova Natural catalog arrived in the mail.
And the oohing and aahing began (from me, not Bunny).

Last night, I was sorting through my wool stash, and an idea hit me.

I took a grey, ribbed, wool sweater, and cut off the sleeves and the sides.

I cut and sewed on a scrap piece of leather to be the shield.

I tied the sides with leather lacing.
Added a little hood.....

And now I have Bunny has an awesome little knight's armor tunic. 

Who knew knights had such great boots!

The reading? That catalog along with a few others,
as well as my young mamas' life group book... Yep, that's it!
