I made this little smock for Ruby’s birthday. I used a pattern from Amy Karol‘s Bend the Rules book and it was great! It was the first time I sewed on a curve and used bias tape and both went pretty well, for the most part. I used some leftover fabric from a project my mom made for Ruby when she was born.
Unrelated, I read two books recently that I really enjoyed. I’ve been reading a lot of Mary Oliver‘s work lately and picked Our World at the library which is written by her but is full of photographs by Molly Malone Cook. It’s beautiful – the photos, the poetry, and the touching love that was evident throughout the book.
I love, love, love Maira Kalman‘s books. I have several of her children’s books that I adore. I read Principles of Uncertainty in an afternoon and really enjoyed the artwork and little stories she shared throughout the book.
Have any of you read these books?
