But...I'm making an exception today. Tam over at Sew Dang Cute (such a cute blog name and an incredible blog as well!) is having a contest for crafters in the blog world! It just so happened that I was halfway through creating my project when I found out about the contest, so it was perfect!
This summer I got a new sewing machine. My old one was a gift from my mom 20 years ago for my 16th birthday (yikes!) and had been well-loved and well-used. But, alas, it went to sewing machine heaven. I replaced it with a new machine made by Pfaff and I LOVE it. I love it so much that I am just making up things just so that I can sew. I don't have any children of my own, but this summer I made a ton of baby blankets for my new niece and a friend's nephew.
This fall, the sewing inspiration hit and I decided to make a halloween costume for my friend's 1-year-old. After having two boys, she is loving have a little girl and she absolutely dotes on her little "love bug." Since that's what she calls her, we decided to go with the idea of a love bug for the costume.
