Chapter 2: The Child

Dec 29, 2019

Along with the rest of the world, our family has fallen head over heels in love with “The Child”…also known to the internet as Baby Yoda.  The Mandalorian has been the best thing to come out of Disney+ so far and we are greatly looking forward to the next level of fandom that they’ll be bringing us.  But I’m pretty sure it’ll be hard to top this tiny, adorable, ohmygodimightdiefromthecuteness Asset.

In typical McKinley family form, we couldn’t help ourselves.  The Foundling needed to be brought to life in our household.  I just about died when he put it on.  And of course he tried to “do the hand thing”.  God love him.

And of course, I couldn’t resist joining in on the meme fun of it all either.  (Just go along with it and pretend that I’m hysterical.)

Putting it all together was pretty darn easy!  Since we were doing it all on a whim, I dug through my stash of fabrics to see what I had to offer.  I found this cute faux-cable knit custom fabric from RP Custom Fabrics that was in a close enough colorway to what the baby wears.  And we had leftovers of a crushed panne velvet from JoAnn Fabrics from Christmas sewing for his head.  Once I found what I needed in fabrics, I just grabbed the patterns and I was off!

Patterns for Pirates has an add-on pack for the Jolly Roger Raglan that includes hoods, kangaroo pockets, inseam pockets, and different cowl/ruched necks.  Instead of only using one of those elements, I stacked two on top of each other to have The Child’s robe look, and to also give him those adorable ears.  The ears as a free download from See Kate Sew, as part of an add-on pack for a baby bonnet she has.  I used her basic shape and just added to the size of it, for the simple fact that my kiddos’ head is nowhere near baby size anymore.  They turned out so cute!  (To add the ears, I just sliced the outer hood pieces vertically at the halfway mark, added seam allowances, and then sandwiched the ears in while sewing everything together.)
