Yoda Needs A Kimono.....

I was recently contacted through my Etsy shop for a customization of the Yoda Newborn Photography Prop and let me tell you, I was excited!!
The request was to completely get rid of the cape and make a Kimono sweater instead, plus, add a detachable pink bow to the hat.
Hello, challenge!!
Thankfully, Abigailology has this amazing pattern that was perfect for what the customer was looking for. Her pattern calls for a fingering weight yarn, which makes this sweater light, stretchy and super soft. I love how it turned out and I hope it's new owner will too!

You can find the pattern on Etsy HERE or on Ravelry HERE.
For the detachable bow, I used a favorite pattern of mine by Daisy Cottage Designs with 100% cotton yarn. I'll glue a piece of felt to the back, then glue the felt to an alligator clip. Easy peasy....

I just love how all of the pieces turned out and am thinking of making the kimono sweater an option for the Yoda Set, as well as the detachable bow.
What do you think??
