Haley has been asking me to make her the Kyoko shirt for a long time now.  Like maybe a year.  So sometime last week I finally got around to making it for her!

kyoko shirt

Let me tell you – these ModKid patterns are amazing! They are full color books with great instructions and pictures to illustrate the steps. I really really enjoyed sewing it. (So much so that the next night I made the Isabel dress. Pictures coming on that one too.)  Some of Patty’s newest patterns have already sold out! Yay! More are coming – I promise!

The fabric I used is from Moda’s designer, Momo. She is Japanese and the fabric, if you ask me, couldn’t be more perfect. It’s the Odyssea line – the main print is Calypso (in Kelp) with the accent of Nautica. I made the obi using Art Gallery’s Nature Elements. These blenders are wonderful! I find myself using them over and over!  Binding is Luxe from Charisma (which is on sale!)

Anyway – we love it.  I love it.  Haley loves it too.  (And yes, she is wearing jeans – by her own choice! )  A mom at Haley’s school ask where she could buy one.  That always makes me smile.   :-) 

Speaking of sales – this week  20% off of ALL Michael Miller fabrics.  Even the sale fabrics!!!!  Use the code MMF09 when you checkout. (good through Nov 1, 2009)  I actually think it was Michael Miller that got me excited again about sewing.  They have SO many great prints.  The Ta Dots – the kids prints – the fun floral –  and their desingers.  We all love their designers! 

Alright, I’ve got some end of bolts that need listing….
