Haley has been asking me to make her the Kyoko shirt for a long time now. Like maybe a year. So sometime last week I finally got around to making it for her!
Let me tell you – these ModKid patterns are amazing! They are full color books with great instructions and pictures to illustrate the steps. I really really enjoyed sewing it. (So much so that the next night I made the Isabel dress. Pictures coming on that one too.) Some of Patty’s newest patterns have already sold out! Yay! More are coming – I promise!
The fabric I used is from Moda’s designer, Momo. She is Japanese and the fabric, if you ask me, couldn’t be more perfect. It’s the Odyssea line – the main print is Calypso (in Kelp) with the accent of Nautica. I made the obi using Art Gallery’s Nature Elements. These blenders are wonderful! I find myself using them over and over! Binding is Luxe from Charisma (which is on sale!)
Anyway – we love it. I love it. Haley loves it too. (And yes, she is wearing jeans – by her own choice! ) A mom at Haley’s school ask where she could buy one. That always makes me smile. 🙂
Speaking of sales – this week 20% off of ALL Michael Miller fabrics. Even the sale fabrics!!!! Use the code MMF09 when you checkout. (good through Nov 1, 2009) I actually think it was Michael Miller that got me excited again about sewing. They have SO many great prints. The Ta Dots – the kids prints – the fun floral – and their desingers. We all love their designers!
Alright, I’ve got some end of bolts that need listing….
