A Wolf's Clothing

Once upon a time there was a boy who believed he was a wolf. He loved to run wild and free and explore everything nature had to offer.

So, his mother made a coat, especially for him, using the Wild Things Coat from Twig and Tale (formerly Big Little). She used the finest cotton knit she could find from Art Gallery Fabrics to ensure it would keep him warm even on the most chilliest of days.

Her little wolf boy exclaimed it was the "coziest coat ever" when he slipped it on.

The mother used Art Gallery's Tomahawk Stripe for the lining of the body. The hood and ears were lined with gorgeous Evening Lakeview from Art Gallery's Denim Studio.

The wolf boy declared his new coat perfect for exploring. He could sneak in the brush and hide while he watched all the other creatures in the forest. Which is exactly what little wolves love to do the boy said.

And when he was scared, he could pull his ears down, just like the other wolves. The wolf boy's mother used the largest cat ear pattern piece to ensure he could do just that.

The wolf boy was so happy. He wore his wolf coat everywhere he could and watched the other creatures in the forest in awe.

The mother made a small change to the pattern and added a zipper so the wind could not blow and make her little wolf boy chilly.

Adding the zipper was such a simple thing to do. And she shared how to do it on Twig and Tale's blog so all the wolf boy mothers could keep their children safe from the wind.

The wolf boy loved his new coat so much that he wanted to be other creatures too! Luckily for him the Wild Things Coat includes many, many ear and even tail designs. But the wolf boy decided he wanted to be a DRAGON next! And now he can!
