Please Meet Roxy & Roxanne




Lachie, my youngest who is 7 years old, and I had a wonderful day yesterday. He was feeling a little sad (tired) and as it was such a cold day, he didn't want to go outside to play, so he asked if we could make Robot Boy and Robot Girl which is one of the new patterns in the Audrey & Maude pattern range.


I let him raid my stash and this is what he came up with!. I was very impressed with his choices - the colours look great together and he particularly wanted both the boy robot and the girl robot to have matching arms!!!!!!!! I was allowed to add a few extras like the gorgeous robot tape that I bought from Japan a while back and raid my vintage button stash.

He then redesigned the panel on the front and I worked straight from his drawn instructions. He also specified no 'tinkle' for either of them. In case you were wondering (like me) the 'tinkle' refers to the antenna that is on the original pattern.


Louise dreamt up this wonderful pattern and both Lachie and I are so pleased with the results. It was great being able to change the basic design and make it our very own. So now it is off for 'show and tell' at school. I had forgotten how nice it is to make something for one's own child!

I love Lachie's choices! I didn't realise it was robot tape - how cool!! I think we need a pet dog and some puppies at our house. The kind my husband likes - you can put it in a cupboard and not feed it without the RSPCA getting concerned!

Lachie has a great sense of style - love his choices and the names! Very cute indeed. The robot tape/twill is perfect.

How Cute! Apparently Lachie is a chip off of the old block. His fabric choices are just perfect -- love that little robot tape!

Hmmm, sometimes we get a little carried away making things for everyone else and their children and forget about our own. I love the babushka fabric. Is it from Amitie?

Wendy said...

They look great - nice choice of fabrics. Well done Lachie!
