So here we are at the solar eclipse 2017! There has been a lot of hype for our Oregon state as we are the first ones to get the show. I must have subconsciously known to hold off on this sewing project, because really — wolf’s with sunglasses…it’s too perfect!
This is McCall’s 6099 and I will say the pattern runs very wide so I’ll be cutting down the width in the next shirt. The wolf was so cute and a great ‘buy on a whim’ for a boy. Can you find the pocket? Probably not, it’s a green wolf on the left to help you out.
I thought it would be fun to take photos during the eclipse so some of the pics were quite dark, whereas the sunny spots came out blurry as the camera tried to adjust itself. ( I guess I know for the next eclipse in 70 years).
It was pretty fun even though we stayed low key; snacks on the back patio, kids jumping around.
About 99% lunar eclipse here.
The birds (and kids) got real wild and loud up until it got dark-ish…then silence.
Overall a fun day for science exploring (explaining) and I’m happy to have made this souvenir for a boy who might remember this day in years to come!
