And when I get to make things for that little face, how could I not? Really and truly, I love the patterns/clothes in these books. I’ve learned so much from following patterns where I couldn’t read the directions. I feel much more comfortable in my knowledge of how garments are constructed and how to make things without a pattern (though I don’t do that often) because of using these books. I’m sad I wasn’t sewing when L3 was younger so that I could have made so many of his garments, too. Alas, there’s not so much in the bigger boy (but not so much bigger) category for patterns. So L4 gets the lion’s share of the sewing these days as sewing for L3 consists of making things like parachutes for lego creatures.
The most recent creation comes from this book. I’ve made two other patterns from this book, which isn’t even mine (Kerry, when are you going to want this back to make something for LAB?!?). And then there are all the other patterns from other books. . . they have been a bit addicting for me. Or maybe it’s how happy she is to have what I’ve made, or how much I love to see her wearing the things I’ve made. Whatever it is, there’s bliss to be had and I’m happy to follow it.
