I first saw this book on another blog and was really excited to hear about it. I love Heather Ross's style and her fabrics are so fun and different! I got this book at our local book store and have been looking at it daily since. So my first project to try had to be a little dress for Kate of course. I loved her picture of the smocked sundress and liked that it had some sewing I have never tried before. It involves elastic thread, which I have never used. It was really rewarding and fun when it all worked out! And it took me under 2 hours to completley finish.
Other projects in this book I am looking forward to trying are the blouse for me, another girl's dress (too cute!) and a great tote bag. Heather has a new line of fabric arriving soon with some great whimsical prints. Can't wait to get some. You can see more pictures from the book by going here.
And because you can download it here for free from their site. Maybe a little daily reminder is helpful for all of us on these busy days of mothering and doing all we try to do.
The little one and I got to baking yesterday and had so much fun together. When I slow down and let her help, it is usually very rewarding to make her part of the process. I would love to share this recipe, it is worth trying out. My favorite for a quick, sweet bread!
