Rae’s pattern in a Book and other updates

Some randomness today to prove I’m still here, puttering away…

New Book Alert:
The folks responsible for “One Yard Wonders”, a compilation sewing book due out this October, finally released a cover shot and a peek at some projects on their FB page this week so you can hop over and have a look! I submitted a couple of patterns on a whim last fall, and it looks like at least one got in (the summer nighty, below). YAY! I’m extra pumped because it’s got 101 (!) projects in it. SO appealing to the Dutch girl in me. I’m very excited and proud to say I’m going to be “published!”

Paint: Thanks for all the Low/Zero VOC paint suggestions! I decided to go with both Aura from Benjamin Moore and Duration from Sherwin Williams (different colors from each). If I hadn’t been such a last-minute kind of person I would have tried out Mythic Paint’s “Endless Summer.” It’s so dreamy. I may have to find another room to transform just to try it out. So far I’ve only used the Aura in the nursery, but I have to say it’s totally amazing to only have to do one coat (plus a little extra brush touchup around edges). ONE COAT!

    I made your pattern the ittybitty baby dress. I would love to make it in a size 2/3 but do not know how to enlarge it. Can you explain to me how to do that?

  14. Oooh, thanks for bringing that book to my attention! I am notorious for buying "just 1 yard" of a fabric to satiate my craving and then all i can think to make is lots of little bags. I'm looking forward to seeing your pattern!!

  15. Thanks for all the great info. With my 1st one on the way I'm seriously considering cloth diapers. They're way cuter and so much better for the environment!
