The scraps I was using were also just two and a half inches too small, which meant I trimmed it up, but it ended up being PERFECT. It wouldn't have fit her if I hadn't made it smaller!
And the lace was the PERFECT length, recieved a week or so ago in a package from my sister-in-law. Yay for using up scraps and not spending money!
There are so many cute patterns in this book for hats, pants, skirts, dresses... and for my Most Difficult Sewing Project to Ever Attempt, there is an absolutely precious old-fashioned looking coat that I will make for Anja for the Feast this year. I am nervous, but I think I can do it. I think.
My sister and her kids came over the other day bearing fresh-picked strawberries! I turned them into a Strawberry-Basil Granita and Greta really liked it.
