|I forgot to take my name tag off.|
I actually have a bit more left over that I am sure I can do some color blocking on yet another project.
I used my grandmother's pattern Stretch and Sew # 300 again. I had used it previously for an orange pullover and a striped cardi.
This time I made it a bit larger for a more relaxed fit.
And I used some gold vintage buttons my mom (M) had picked up for me a while back. I think it provides a great contrast.
I used some of the knit to make a binding/facing. And I added a band at the bottom.
I wore it with my maxi dress to the wedding and several times since. I wore it school clothes shopping for my daughter and the clerk admired it. I said thank you and thought to myself that it is funny that she works with 'fashion' all day and she likes my home-made cardi. It was definitely worth the $5 I payed for the fabric.
And guess what? This week I have started a new adventure with Sally from Daisy Chain Creations! We are setting up a blog that is dedicated to sharing ideas and pattern reviews on pre-teen patterns. It is called Sew Cool for the Tween Scene. I would love it if you would come check us out!
If you are interested in hearing more from us, there are a couple ways for you to keep in touch!
