The birthday presentSunday, February 22, 2009
The matchy-matchy project for my youngest child is done. Hope she likes it as much as I do! Her birthday is next Saturday so I'll soon find out. The beanie and scarf patterns are drafted by me (the scarf was really hard, lol!). The top and leggings are from Ottobre magazine.
It's all done in thick cotton interlock and what a joy it was to sew. The only cloud on the horizon is my serger/coverstitcher, it's skipping stitches. I bought it in 2004, maybe it's time for service? How often do you serve your sergers? I leave my ordinary sewing machine to the dealer only every 5-6 years, maybe that's a bad practice considering how much I sew?
Also I've joined Clevergirl's informal March pant sew-a-long. I plan to make the Anthropologie knockoffs, which probably will be rather tricky and time consuming, so I'm very grateful that Antoinette is offering this format.
