Sewing for Quilt Market - Oh, Kimono!

Spring Quilt Market Projects 2013

If you sew for little babies often (especially baby girls), the book Sweet Booties might be one for you to consider adding to your sewing library.  I've only sewn a few things out of this book, but there are a lot of really adorable projects in it for babies.

This Oh, Kimono pattern was easy to follow and went together nicely.  I didn't love the way the button-with-elastic-cord closure on the inside stayed closed, but it is probably better on a tiny human than on a plastic hanger.  I also prefer a bigger hem on the bottom, but that would be something easy to change in the future.  Other than those minor, nit-picky preferences of mine, I really liked sewing up this pattern.

And don't you just love the elephant print?  I think this might be my favorite from this line.  It's so bright and happy.
