In a Japanese book.
And, if you're like me, you will go through your fabric stash looking for the perfect fabrics. And then you find them. And they seem "meant to be" paired together.
And, if you're like me, as soon as you find them, you can't wait to start.
So, if you're like me, you have to wait until the kids are sleeping before you can begin the project. And you're so excited. And you're not sure if you're doing it right because it's all in Japanese. And then the sleeves look a little funky. And the neckline is a little too big for a three-year-old girl. And you feel defeated.
And, if you're like me, you're not gonna let it stop you. You forge ahead and hope for the best. It's cute. It's wonky. But it's finished. And, there's handmade polka dot bias tape! I think it's right up there with handmade gingham bias tape.
(Are you like me?)
