Little Things to Sew-Along. I am going to make some of the other projects in the book instead of the puppet theater. I really like the puppet theater but I can already envision the heartbreak it will bring as 1 1/2 year old George would tear it down in a second and Sophie would be traumatized. By next Christmas we might be ready for it.
The fringe was really fun to make and a great way to use up scraps. The idea of sewing on tissue paper was new to me, but I love how it works.
Make Two Challenge. For each handmade Christmas gift you make you make a second gift to donate to others. I think it is a great idea and a wonderful way to teach my kids about giving to those in need. I think this will beperfect for the challenge.

This is my second attempt at the After School pattern by Oliver +S. I added about two inches at the hem and tried to be more precise with my pattern markings this time around. I like the boat neck shape on this top, I think it has an Audrey Hepburn feel to it.
