Home Ec Saturday

Last week I ordered this pattern.

Free shipping was the icing on the cake.

I found it (in Canada) here. And I will use this as my podium to rant and rave about Pink Panda Fabrics. They were great...I received an email answer to a question sent a mere hour or so earlier. The pattern came via snail mail (which is always fun!) within about 4 days, too!

I've noticed they are now sold out but you can always buy one from Bolt Neighborhood. No free shipping but just as efficient service.

This Tunic was fast, fun, and I was able to adjust it to fit this tiny Mama's size. I started last night and have been chipping away in between Gold Medal wins and 4 year old parties. I'm looking forward to finding a more exciting print...this one was a test product and although I am really really pleased with how it turned out, I'm thinking more vibrant colours are in order. (I added the back ties to give it a little extra shape...next time, I'll just adjust the pattern before cutting.)
