Can't you just see a tiny baby being entranced with these, kicking their feet up in the air. Then the foot goes right into their mouth.

They grow wonderfully in my area of California. Starting in October through December, you can find them at the local Farmer's Markets. The flat ones like these are the best. And you don't have to wait to eat them like the pointy shaped ones.

Of course I came with my own fabrics and precut 5" squares of a charm pack. And of course I had to buy one more! The fabric was just irresistible!
Isn't it great to see what speaks to us in color and style. I love how sewing lets us explore that creativity and its diversity.

I had a cute stack of 3" squares of Japanese fabrics. So tiny and so adorable! I thought these would be a perfect little sewing project. Something fun to do, not something that I had to get done. That is just the way my sister had felt.
p.s. We think these little bags would be cute to use for advent calenders, Barbie's purse, or for a gift card!

I wanted to use the hanky! I started sewing them onto baby onesies to make dresses. This I began to see was difficult to do because it was often hard to find two hankies that coordinated with each other but were also the same size. So I had to rethink my design a bit and came up with the hanky apron. It's a sort of top to be worn with pants or a skirt.

So I found a new pattern for reversible baby booties. It's fun to sew up something new. And this is a really good pattern with no exposed raw edges.
The shoes are tiny, and tiny can be a bit frustrating at times. Sewing tiny things make me feel like a clumsy giant with giant clumsy hands!
But look at how cute they are!
Now there are piles of fabric around my sewing room. You know how sewers can be easily entertained just by mixing up fabric, talking about fabric, touching fabric.
I am to keep a fresh eye, no preconceived ideas, laying out new fabrics with vintage and organic fabrics. I am spending my day just digging and sorting through my stash!Wanna come over?

Well I had made theses scarves. And people just weren't warming up to them. (Sorry pun!) They didn't know what the long patchwork of fabric was!
So a girl won't be overpowered by ruffles. This ruffle just adds a touch of whimsy and fun!
