a top

I made this. I can’t get a decent picture of it. It was a handmade thrifted top that had this cute crocheted yoke. I cut out the old bottom and put on this new one from this pretty nani iro floral. It kinda fits. Ok, maybe not really. But it looks cute on the hanger. Although I need to get some new cute hangers if I’m going to be showing off sewing for me. Can’t imagine I’ll have the guts to actually model anything but who knows. Right now I’m just feeling like a superhero because I was able to blog it at all. Technology was out to get me today. Better get out now while I’m ahead!

  11. Within about 20 minutes of bringing your new book home this afternoon, I got the following requests from my girls: Betty, Sleepover dolls, and topsy-turvy doll. Then a request for a mermaid and for the hansel and gretel puppets (we recently made spoon puppets, but nothing nearly as creative and fun as those). We (all three of us girls) LOVE your new book and all of the projects. I have my work cut out for me, so time to get to it! 🙂
