This was also the first time I made buttonholes. The buttons are slightly different colors. =P Here's a closeup:
The review for this skirt can be found here.
The last week I've been making a few gifts. I made some tile coasters, a hat, and a backpack. The hat is from "Simple Sewing with a French Twist" by Celine Depuy. The book is a great inspiration book, but the instructions aren't totally clear. I still love it though! The drawstring backpack was something I just made up along the way. Here the pictures respectively.
Coming soon, more birthday cards, baby booties for a co-worker, and more gifts! Next month, I'll be making the InStitches apron with Amy Butler Midwest Modern fabric. The fabric is gorgeous and I can't wait to use it!
