|front - can you see the pockets?|
So this year, I made her a new one. If she enjoys it half as much, I will be very happy indeed.
I had fun matching the front pockets. I used that technique I've seen several places where you cut out extra pattern pieces for the pockets - one for each pocket. Then, with the transparent tissue still attached to the front, you layer on the pattern tissue and trace the fabric motifs. Then you remove the two pocket pattern pieces and fussy-cut them from the fabric, lining up the little motifs, here bird houses. Voila! Pockets that seem to float.
Happy birthday, sweet girl!
