Two kits

The only thing harder than photographing kids is photographing them together.  I finally got a decent picture of the two cousins together with their matching pink leopard hoodies* (Kwik Sew 2893).

You can just barely see the new flowered pants.  Her mom says that it is so difficult to get her to wear pants  and they live in northern northern California, where it actually does get below freezing.  For her holiday present, I let her pick out fabrics from my fabric closet.  She chose no fewer than four fabrics.

I store my frequently used patterns in a binder with construction notes.  I can see that I last made the Kwik Sew toddler pants for her in November 2008, also using toddler size 4.  But this time, I had to add 2" of length.

Happy new year.  I celebrated by coming down with a cold.  My head is stuffy and foggy so my apologies if this post is incoherent.

* Not to rub it in or anything, but the girls tore off their hoodies right after the photo shoot.  It was just too hot at the beach to keep them on--upper 70s and sunny with a light breeze.


  1. Arrrgggh - upper 70's? It is 18 degrees here in VA. I always start missing California right around this time of year. I love their hoodies - very cute!

  2. What a nice first photo!

  3. Hope your cold is better. This is the first time I have felt myself in 10 days.
