For my niece’s third birthday, I wanted to make her a coat. She lives in Boston, so I thought it would be a practical gift, in addition to being pretty. I already had most of the materials on hand, so it turned out to be a quick and easy project, as far as coats go anyway.
My most recent make ventured into the territory of quilting. I didn’t make a full blown quilt (that’s crazy talk), but I did some dip my toe into the world of hand quilting. I don’t want to give anything away, as the gift most likely hasn’t been opened yet, but I do want to tell you about some fun new tools that I acquired for the job.
I did it! You guys, this is a proud moment for me. There were some bumps along the way (including my mom saying this jacket was “too ugly to make”) but I’ve officially finished making my Anise jacket. It took me most of my spring break, and I probably won’t get to wear it again until the fall, but I am so excited.
