I ordered this at Amazon for my mom for Mothers Day, and to get Free Super Saver Shipping I added the new Anna Maria Horner book Handmade Beginnings.
I have her other book, Seams to Me ,and have made a few of the projects inside. I am just smitten with her adorable family! How does tha lady find time for all this with 6 children!? Her projects are functional, beautiful, and seem easy to sew. I can't wait to try my hand at a few of the patterns inside. I just bought a 3 half-yard set of her Little Folks voile, and am excited to try a top for myself.
I never thought I would like sewing for myself, but it's very rewarding! Not to mention completely customizable, done on your time-frame, etc. Any ideas for this lovely set of fabrics? Have to keep in mind that it is 100 million degrees here all summer long. Ugh.
After closing my boutique a couple of years ago, I found myself at home with some tiny crazy people. All of the time. In order to keep my sanity, I started crafting and sewing (in earnest!) It earns me "mad money", and whenever my oldest daughter hears me talking to someone about my trade she says "Mom's hustling..." Hence, the name!
