I finished another present. Woohoo for me 🙂 I used Made by Rae’s Toddler Backpack pattern. I added 3 inches to the height but I really should have just left it alone since the original size is just perfect for a 2 year old. Since I made it bigger, I didn’t have enough piping to go all the way around both front and back, so I didn’t put it on the bottom back. I had to use the zipper foot for most of the construction because of the piping and I had to keep telling myself to keep my fingers back- I was afraid of getting caught by the needle. And again, the pictures don’t do it justice.

Last summer sewing- Jump Rope Dress

I had to bribe her a couple weeks ago to wear it to church. I hope M is not nearly so picky and maybe a little more girly.

And because my daughter is a nut:
