My alterna-dad (my ex-husband's father, who is my Colorado Dad - he's awesome!) has a girlfriend, who has a 2 year old grand-daughter who is adorable. For her second birthday, I was invited to attend the party (I thought the invite was very sweet) and did so happily! Alas, 2-year-olds aren't known for their ooing and ahing over one's sewing efforts... but her mom liked it!
This pattern came, as so many do, from my trolling the craft: blog. It took an evening, and I got to glean all kinds of new knowledge about how needles break! I've since acquired even *more* information about swapping out the right needle for the job. Live and learn.
