As for my projects, I had stumbled across Prudent Baby's Snappy Shirt tutorial in my saved sewing projects. For whatever reason, a project that once was put on the backburner now HAD to be done...NOW! With a rather long and lean 18 month old, I figured the 12-18 month pattern would be fine.
As for the second project, I stumbled across a free pattern from Laura at We Wilsons. Again, something about this little guy screamed, "Make me now!"
My little ferret's face is a bit wonky, and sewing it shut reminded me of how much I don't care to hand sew, but the end product is pretty cute - especially when adorned with a red glitter bracelet from the resident four year old.
Wishing you success in all your endeavors - crafting or otherwise!
