I've always loved to make things, but it wasn't until Cecelia and I started our business that I've had a real outlet for this passion. Really, there are only so many pillow covers and notebooks I can use in my own house. And instead of my interest waning over time, it seems to be fueled by the act of creating, making me want to try new things all the time (which is one of the reasons we have so many different things going on in our shop -there's too many fun things to try our hands at!). A few weeks ago I discovered a pattern for a toddler jacket (along with matching bellbottom overalls) at the Salvation Army.
I immediately had to try making it, envisioning how insanesly cute my daughter would look in this vintage style jacket. I am so impressed with how it turned out; I think this is probably the most detailed thing I've ever made (it even has a lining). Observe:
