For a long time now, my blog subtitle has read "See Emma Sew (and Stuff)." As you all know, lately there's been a whole lot of "stuff" and not a lot of "sew." Well hold on to your hats everyone, there's been a creation at Chez Furrybees!
All winter (and even fall), I have wanted to make Tiny a vest. Something classic that would have been at home on a portly gentleman of the 1950s (and so would therefore look completely adorable and not a little entertaining on a 15-month-old). Like this one, perhaps. However, all great patterns, it seems, require one to be a knitter (not me) and not a crocheter (me) and so it wasn't meant to be.
Tiny loves it, or the buttons, more precisely, and spent quite a lot of time pointing at them and then trying to put them in his mouth. I think it's a hit, raw edges or no.
PS: The model was given unfettered access to the buttons, knobs and levers on the Highly Coveted And Longed For (Daily) sewing machine so that the photo shoot could go smoothly. No little fingers were harmed in the making of this blog post.
