Most Recent Sewing Purchase

I love Farbenmix. I have loved it for a few years, but never splurged on a pattern because they run around $15 and NEVER go on sale. So, when I was introduced to the book Sewing Clothes Kids Love by the founder of Farbenmix it was a done deal. Great photos, clear instructions and 10 - yes10 - full size patterns. I ordered it and have been soaking up each detail for the last few days. I love it! I don't know when I will have time to actually tackle any of the pieces, but I am excited none the less.When I was on the site, it recommended some kids craft books to look at. I was immediately interested in Ed Emberley's Complete Funprint Drawing Book. I took it up north with some ink and cards and let the girls go to town. It was fun watching them look at each page and deciding which designs they would make. We ended up with lots of inky fingers, but they had a blast.

I would highly recommend each of these purchases. And BTW, Walmart had good prices and 97cent shipping per item. It was on my doorstep in 48 hours. Not bad!

Oooo, those books do look really great. I haven't heard of Farbenmix before, but the cover is really selling me! Thanks for the tip!
