So are you all wondering where those pictures of my drapes are? Me too. Alas, they are still in plastic on my bedroom floor because I don't have a drill and am having a complex just THINKING about asking a neighbor if they have one. It is a sad state of affairs, considering we only have... 8 months left in this apartment. Then, who knows. Here, somewhere else... it's all up in the air. So, for those 8 remaining months, I'd like to have something on my windows, please. Hopefully by this weekend...
Have you heard of Portabellopixie? Sandi has the most beautiful line of fabrics and equally exquisite children's patterns to go with her designs. I was at a Quilt Fabric shop and saw this in the 50% off bin... still, it was $8. I went halvesies with my bff and got first dibs. I've already cut into fabric! We got the Gracie pattern. It looks really cute, and so far... SUPER easy.
The best part about her patterns (other than the fact that they include size 6 months to size 8) is that they come with beautiful pictures of the finished clothing articles and her fabrics. It is inspiring to look at.
All the pattern instructions are illustrated in color and she provides sewing tips and guides in the back. Sandi, I love you.
I have kids in bed, so it is sewing time!
