I can remember watching many an episode of The Muppet Show growing up and Beaker was my favorite Muppet of all. I was so excited to receive this flash from the past Muppets fabric currently on preorder from Moon Beam Textile Company!
For Kai’s Beaker romper, I went with my old favorite, the Harem Coverall, by Brindille & Twig! Now this was a little tricky as the panel I had to work with was adult sized and the graphic was sized to take up a lot of the panel! I did not want to lose the Awesome “Meep!” at the top of the panel, OR any part of Beaker himself.
It took a bit of thinking, but finally, I cut the very top part of the panel and sewed it at the bottom (to make it long enough for the legs without cutting off part of Beaker’s head!) Next, I cut out the Meep! letters. Before cutting them I iron Heat N Bond Lite to the back (leaving the paper on afterward) so they were easier to cut out. I then removed the paper backing, ironed them to the romper back and stitched around each letter. This took a good bit of time, but was not difficult and so worth it in the end!
The hat is my favorite part of this little outfit! It is another of my favorite patterns – the Melon Cap by Max & Meena. I love this hat pattern so much! I used the Muppet print as well as Moon Beam Textile Company‘s awesome orange solid cotton lycra. I then sewed a very small loop of foldover elastic to the very top of the hat so I could slip this orange marabou hair clippie from Hobby Lobby on top. It reminds me so much of Beaker’s crazy hair!
So cute Karen.
