Seriously. I am SEW happy with this book ;-)
I want to make almost every single project in it. The instructions are clear and simple, the ideas creative and kid-friendly. I am using these patterns and ideas for a jumping off point for some of the Christmas gifts I want to make this year. I started with this pattern for basic pocket pants.
...and that inspired me to start burning through some of my knit fabric stash. Sadie has pretty much outgrown all her pj's, so I made her these:
But the top was just a little to big, so I had to make a second one (they sew up really fast!) to see if I could get a better fit.
I like this one even better.
Also in the mail this week...my own labels! I designed them with
my high-tech design software picnik (its free, and online!) and had them printed at Sewnique's etsy shop--for a pretty reasonable price if I do say so.
