Time for a new installment from the Kiddiewear Dept:
These kimono pjs are made with Michael Miller’s Rocket Rascal’s fabric. I bought it last fall at a teeny tiny quilt shop inside Pike Place Market in Seattle (I can’t remember the name offhand, but it has fab stuff).
I had noticed a number of kimono-inspired tops at Habitual and Oliver + S and wanted to give it a try. This one is similar to the one at Habitual, but I added separate sleeves, snap tape instead of ties, and fiddled with the dimensions, so it’s not quite the same. I originally started with the white bias tape edging didn’t like how it turned out, so I made my own gingham tape and ended up with these:
And here’s a sneak peak at something else I’ve been working on lately. It’s the beginning of a twin-sized fairy-tale quilt for when E outgrows the crib. Might as well start now. I’ve been tinkering around with the fabrics and I think I finally like the combination. The gingham is a little bold compared to the other prints, but I wanted something to make the reds pop. And pop it does. Maybe a little too much but I am so not into tearing seams right now, so it’ll have to do.
