My friend Shelly and I have started a new project, we have began to try patterns from this sweet Japanese craft book. We traced the patterns and made our blocks then made a muslin, which was just as well as we did need to make some adjustments to the bust. Now Shelly has found some fabric and we’ll finish her one first. I’ve yet to decide on my fabric but I need to use from stash because I’ve sworn to try and not buy any new fabric! I’m thinking about using the calico muslin and doing a dye treatment and some blockprinting for fun.
