With that being said, whenever I go to Lee Summit, Kansas, I ALWAYS go to Zoelee's. Zoelee is an amazing, as well as talented, woman. I have never visited her shop without feeling this need to purchase something new and wondrous...and there's the dilemma...there's always something new and wondrous. She carries a wonderful assortment of Kwik Sew patterns and has a continual flow of clothes that she has not only made for herself but to also put on display in her store...which is located downstairs in her fabulous home. Truly, it's a must see shop! The last time I was there, there was a darling pair of children's slippers on display that Zoelee had just made using a Kwik Sew pattern. Having used Kwik Sew patterns in the past, I knew that the directions and fit would be perfect and that my grandkids would LOVE the finished product. How can I give anything but an A to Kwik Sew patterns? These patterns are great for any beginner, but I must add, owning a serger makes these patterns even easier to make. Since I obviously don't have any pictures of past projects that I made for my kids, you'll just have to trust me when I say that you can't go wrong when using Kwik Sew.
The pattern that I took home that day:
And here are the slippers..aren't they cute? Making these plus personalized, flannel, pillowcases for the grandkids was not only different, but FUN!! A thought for you to consider, I made all of my grandkids pillowcases using Christmas fabric before Christmas had arrived last year. It's funny how making something as simple as holiday themed pillowcases, would excite those kids,,,,but it did! Whether it's Halloween, Christmas, Patriotic, Thanksgiving, Easter, it doesn't matter! Kids LOVE having their own pillowcases. AND, when you make them pillowcases using themed fabric and then embroider their names on the cuff...I'm just sayin'... it's a sure hit. Like I said...just a thought.
Do I hear the purring of those machines working away out there? ;-)
Until next time....
