It took me a while to get back my knitting drive after having EJ. First finding time to do anything at all was hard, let alone finding time to be creative. Returning to work helped with that, EJ having a regular bedtime is awesome, and the February Lady Sweater really pushed me over the edge. I still have not done any sewing. Nothing yet has inspired me to pull out Taylor. That is until I saw this cute little project via Craftzine. Simple, fun and very useful for me at this point in life. I think it would also make a quick gift for new mothers! Now I just need to find a few fun fabrics!
ETA- I found fabrics! What do you think?
All purchased from Sew,Mama,Sew!. The top four are all part of Lightning Bugs & Other Mysteries collection, and the bottom two are Robert Kaufman fabrics.
Also, I decided the deer should be "Lady". So you win Michelle . Your prize is you get to gloat about winning. If that isn't enough, well that is too bad. I hope she visits again this Saturday so I can tell her she has a name!


  1. oooh how fun! love the new project idea :)

    love the new fabric as well :) nice combos :)

  2. Yay! I'm a winner! Gloating is *totally* my thing!

    I adore Sew, Mama, Sew and the wonderful patterns available. This project is perfect and so apropos to life these days. I may have to steal that once I get a machine. My sewing project list just grew by one!

  3. I cannot wait to see those made up!!! Love the fabrics :)K
