First, a little Target snoop shopping...I love their jackets and think they're reasonably well made but can't do the $35 price tag. Especially since Target puts their clothing on sale so quickly. I'm sure it'll be marked down 30% soon and maybe even 50%...
Perfect piece for spring!
I was being a total hooligan and had a couple of completed items that needed hemming. My mom's cardigan is one of them. M6996 in an animal print jersey from Fabric Mart.
We're pretty close in size and I've gifted her 2 of my M6844 cardis so this one should fit just fine. I have some "unselfish sewing" in the works for her to round out my February sewing.
What do you do when your husband asks you to make a blanket for a pending new baby in his extended family...and then tells you the baby is due "this week"?
I took a yard of fleece and the JoAnn "minky" (it's called cuddle dot or something or another). I cut it down to 34" x 52" (FYI Husband: babies grow and still need blankies when they are no longer tiny) and put wrong sides together and bound it with the polka-dot fabric (I am getting major mileage from this cut of cotton!)
The burp cloths are from the Cloud9 free pattern & tutorial (here). I love this little pattern. You can get 2 'faces' from a fat quarter which makes it really easy! I buy solid white flannel to back mine. I saw a great tip about backing it with terrycloth but that was WAY too thick.
This cute little set is heading west! On it's way to California :)
