I've been more excited about sewing lately, than actually sewing. For better or worse, this culminated today in the online purchase of a used coverstitch machine. Until, a couple of months ago, I don't think I had even heard of a coverstitch machine. And until recently, I didn't even realize my humble Kenmore serger couldn't do this stitch, so naturally, a necessity emerged for the, now trendy, coverstitch machine. I got the Brother 2340CV, which I think is the least expensive in this category.
I was also pretty stoked with the latest issue of Ottobre magazine (1/2013). There's a few things I'd really like to make. I'm easily won over by the fabric patterns and colors.
These boys' undies are supercute! And I have to make them with this fabric which is, of course, available from Ottobre's Etsy store for a small fortune. Who to make them for? The five year old, or the recently potty trained two-year old. I can probably only afford one pair. Especially after the coverstitch machine purchase. These will be the most expensive underwear ever.
I also couldn't resist this chef's outfit, which will be so cute for my little guy that loves to make me food in the play kitchen and bring me my orders. Of course, I don't think he's ever seen a chef's outfit before, but who cares, right?
