I just snapped up a wonderful little book the other day for a special person I cannot name, who'll be receiving it soon. I totally flipped when I looked in the back and saw the tiny plastic templates to trace the outfits. Now, aside from the fact that they are drawn to fit a body with no hips, they are so sweetly drawn.
I fell so hard for those little templates that I scanned them into my computer (new hard drive, yay!) and embarked on hours of fun with them + online fabric swatches. It's all the fun of the paper version, with no scissors! (And I'm such a perfectionist with scissors, it's a blessing to be apart from them.)
I love seeing the different textures, and how the outlines stand out so crisply and cleanly, like real cut-outs. Too much fun. This is just another one of the little "projects" I like to do in my spare time - because I find it hard to be still. Oddly, it is in the process of making, embroidering, and thinking through these little projects that I become still, and quiet within myself. Does that make any sense? Anyway, if you flip at all over teensy-weensy traceable things, this book will bring hours of fun.
