Yup. They have got kids and adult patterns that are great. You are able to order most copies online somewhere, will see if I can find where, if you like.

Those are fantastic. Did you hand embroider them or were they machine done?

Those are so cute. Don't feel bad, I can't embroider! I'm jealous!

You can look at them here. It's like a quarterly pattern book that you can buy. I'm saving up for one now, thanks to MittensKittens! :P

Thank you! Yes, I hand embroidered them -- I don't have a sewing machine. I learned how to embroider by watching how-to videos on YouTube a few days before I sewed the 3-flowers onesie.

Got some wonderful new fabrics today! Can't wait to do something with them. Can I show my new podaegi here too, or would that be off topic?

limabean, you did a great job, and I like to learn things from youtube too, especially cooking!

Here's my latest sewing endeavor:

front

Okay, I didn't make the belt

With clothes, I do mostly costumes, dress-up and recycling (i.e. making jean skirts out of old jeans, short-sleeved shirts out of old long-sleeved shirts) for the kids.

SAHDS, that looks great! I've never made a costume yet... my kids are not school age so I guess that will come later.

most of what I've made is on my blog or http://www.flickr.com/photos/7174693...7606912168860/

Frogger, that little dress on your blog is so sweet! It looks like it's reversible? Do you mind sharing where you got the pattern? I know my dd would love a dress like that!

THe one titled Sewing Feliz? It's studio tantrum Feliz Pattern. There is another one that is a farbenmix pattern, Anna that you can wear front to back or back to front. (it looks like an apron). Both patterns can be purchased online or through coops.

Is that your own design? That's one of the funniest things I've ever seen.

I modified an old sleep sac/bunting pattern. I split the pattern lengthwise into thirds. Made it longer and narrower with the side panels curved up at the bottom. The stem came from the monkey pattern. It was the hat for the monkey. Joy wanted the kids to be Curious George and a banana for Holloween that year. Alex was 2 and Lindsay was 6 months old.
