I have been hard at work on a secret project and the time has come to show you what it is!
A number of months ago I hatched a plan to start making patterns. Initially I thought I would be working on patterns for adults to sew things like purses or quilts, but as time went on I decided to change course and design patterns for moms and daughters to make together. Making crafty goods with my girls has been one of the sweetest things about being a mom, so I suppose that I am sticking with what I know by doing this.
My first two patterns are for The Sweetest Sugar Cookies Ever (ages 5 and up) and Big and Little Drawstring Bags (ages 10 and up). Both are available in my new shop and they will remain in the sidebar of the Me and My Girl blog with links to the shop. There are also fabric and wool felt kits available so that making these is as easy as 1-2-3!
I know all kinds of new things about my computer due to making these patterns. I really had no idea that my lowly computer did so many amazing tricks. Impatience was by best teacher because it is hard to find people to give computer lessons at a moment's notice, and when I want something done, it gets done! My hope is that my next round of patterns will be a smoother process with fewer roadblocks to conquer!
It feels so good to be posting these as there were times when I thought this day would never come! Now maybe I can spend some time with my neglected sewing machine who is looking a bit lonely on the craft table. Poor girl!
Have a great day!
