Finally! Wow, what a process this time, because it’s 3 patterns in one!!! I am really proud of this pattern. Mommy & Me is the first in a series of patterns that is directed toward beginner sewists, young and older alike! Misses sizes XSm-Lg, Girls, 4-8, plus how to create your own unique small quilt.

This is a loose fitting vest and a little longer than some. It’s long and lean (my mantra for ALL my patterns). Lace is so popular right now, check out what you might have at home (I’ve been known to cut up a tablecloth or drapery panel)!
The trim on the two vests looks whiter, because it is. I mixed colors of lace in the quilt too. Be sure to visit the Terial Magic blog post next Thursday, August 25th. I am the guest blogger and it will feature this pattern. I made my own lace “looking” fabric for the back. Whaaat? I don’t want to give it away, but I think you’ll love it.
In between photo shoots I remembered I had to water (101 that day, OUCH! but they say out west, “It’s a dry heat.”) Anyway, I threw the vest over a silk printed tunic and I like it. It’s a Bohemian look.
Here is a quote that I think really speaks to my newest pattern: “There’s no right way, no formula. There’s nothing but struggle and constant refinement. We always have the daily disaster or three. But when it all works, it’s pure magic.” -Karl Lagerfeld, Designer Have a wonderful, and creative weekend. Hugs and thanks for stopping by today. Heidi
