Kids clothing books

Have been browsing Amazon looking at sewing books specifically for kids and have found these interesting ones. Now I need to decided which one to get.


I found one of them at the library and have ordered a copy. Cant remember which though……


2014 Winter Coat vintage refashion….

I have this wonderful brown long vintage winter coat. It is run down and a bit too big for me so I am going to deconstruct it and refashion it in my size. It has a yoke at the back so I need to find a coat pattern that has a yoke and use that to assist my refashioning efforts.

In other news I am looking for a new sewing machine. After much much research I have settled on a Husqvarna Emerald 116. Haven’t bought it yet but will soon.

In the mean time bring out the stitch ripper and start deconstructing.
