I love this, you did an amazing job. Definitely bookmarking this and hitting the this rocks button. I've always been obsessed with The Borrowers and the idea that there may be tiny humans/creatures who 'borrow' items and use them in their own ways.
I would also be curious to see a pic of the quilt, even if it is in bad shape. I like the more traditional quilts and am always looking for ideas.
Sorry it took so long to reply, I kinda have been in a rut/depressive state and just was uninterested in my usual hobbies so wasn't coming around. I will try to get some photos of it soon and share them with you. It's nothing too fancy though, it just had a special place in my heart.
I am really wanting a men's zippered vest, but being that I can't afford to go out and buy one and I am into sewing lately I've decided to draft my own pattern. I'm using this ehow article: http://www.ehow.com/how_4423824_make-vest-pattern.html. Do you have any advice or tips that could help me?
