A New Must-Have

Sewing Clothes Kids Love: Sewing Patterns and Instructions for Boys' and Girls' OutfitsYesterday, a birthday book arrived that I ordered with a gift card (thanks, Mom!). I had seen it a few weeks ago at Borders, but the cost made me pause.I found it for $10 less on Amazon. Score!

If you enjoy sewing clothes for your children,Sewing Clothes Kids Love needs to be on your wish-list! The clothes are so fun and funky - I'm in love! One of those can't sleep at night, head full of ideas kind of love! I hope I remember to feed my family over the next couple weeks!


Included are 10 patterns in sizes 18 months to 12 years (or 59 inches tall). There are a couple cute boy patterns that I will definitely use, but I wouldn't have bought the book for those alone. It's really about the girl fun, and mine have already started a wish list!
The patterns are European-styled and creative, but it's the fabric and trims that put the looks over the top. I don't know how much I'm going to be able to imitate, but I'll have a ton of fun trying!
