i've got a great sewing project to share and i think you'll like it -
- the turnaround skirt.
this little number takes almost no time to assemble, and then you get to sit down and do the handwork for as long as you want. when you decide it is finished, you will have created two great one-of-a-kind skirts that can be dressed up, down, worn one way or turned around.
the pattern is the "Sew Petite" feature in the Spring 2011 issue of Petite Purls.
i'm thrilled to be a part of the Petite Purls family again - and as always, brandy and allegra have done a wonderful job of presenting so many cute knitting patterns for the kiddos (Thinty + Nova are nearing the top of my queue to knit as soon as i finish the manuscript for book #2), and i plan on making a whole bunch of these gift bags to keep on hand. be sure to check out the new issue as well as go back through the archives. you're sure to find something to cast on or stitch up for your little ones. xoxo
p.s. and check out the Renaissance Mom interview, too. just saying. xoxo
