I have to agree with my sweet friend Martha about this project: the preparation is a lot more involved than the actual work!!!
I guess I have to admit that I was not as prepared on the entire project as I should have been , but it took me about two weeks to get all the supplies together and that made the project seem huge and overwhelming to me. (and I found myself dreading it)
But. . . .once all my little mail orders started arriving, I found I couldn't wait to get going on the jacket from Gail Doane's book "Sew Cute Couture. The bonnet is by Wendy Schoen Design and is called Baby's first Outing.
And like my friend Martha, I agree that it pays huge dividends in adorableness for the amount of hand work required..
This little set, whhich in my opinion is more than precious, is for my granddaughter Lacey's first birthday. I think it will make her a perfect spring coat and bonnet!!!
