I hear that a lot from young mothers, I think it means "are you kidding me"? You know, when the kids do something unexpected. Well, right now I am feeling a bit of "Really?"
I am in challenge overload and do not know where to start, so I am not starting anything. My friend Ole, gave me a challenge last week of designing a Christmas stocking using smocking but not on the cuff as we have all seen done, but incorporating it in the stocking itself. Thank goodness she did not put a time limit on it. Still the idea floats around in my mind taking up needed thinking space.
The next challenge I have is to design and sew for a little, sweet plus size girl. I am finding no help from the commercial patterns, maybe one or two patterns is all I can find and they are better then what is on the store racks but not what I picture a little girl being able to wear that is fun and perky. So, that is taking up the little space I have left to think.
Any ideas? Do any of you sew for a plus size little one? I think once I get the basic concept about what works I will be on my way but right now I am just lost.
