From Australia, a tweep, reader and friend sends a couple bralets for my daughter – as well as a fabric I’d lusted over almost a year ago. I am now carefully picking apart this latter piece (in the form of an old pillowcase) and hoping it will be the back to a very special baby blanket. It’ll be a little tricky to save the flannel but – I think I can do it. Wonderful!
Karen and Shelly’s book has been printed and is available for order. Reminder: I pattern-tested for these wonderful ladies (the book and a few other line pieces) and once I get the go-ahead I’ll post pictures of the lovely, and I do mean lovely, garments that resulted. In the meantime I suppose I can show you a sneak-peak few pictures of my boy from within the book’s pages!
& hey – by the time you read this it will be Justin Barlow’s birthday. If you have a few moments for random acts of kindness, tweet or email him (justin AT justin-barlow DOT com) a happy birthday! He is a sweet man.
Must. Buy. Book. Seriously, there is not anywhere near enough out there on making clothes for boys. I can’t wait to get my copy.
Lovely photos of Nels, for sure. I just ordered my Tee For Two — don’t know what took me so long. Can’t wait to buy this book.
Ladies, I don’t have the copy of the book but having sewn almost every single pattern I can say it is well-worth it. I think there’s also a picture of Nels shirtless holding a surfboard! To die for.
