All finished! This is Bigby, Ysolda's Peak Island Hood in Needle Food's Cranberry. I did sew on different buttons semi-on-purpose. Probably if I did have three of the flower buttons, I would have three flower buttons, but I like the random effect. It's a mix of wood and coconut buttons.
Such a squishy hood! It turned out just as I'd hoped. I took it outside for a quick photo shoot, but it's a little tricky to do self-portraits on a windy, warm day wearing your red hood! (I know, it looks like I don't have a face!)
Bigby is named after Bill Willingham's Big Bad Wolf from the Fables comics. I love those comics. Fairy tale characters become refugees in a New York neighbourhood. Bigby plays Sheriff for a while before marrying Snow White and having cubs... yes, cubs!
