coming soon...the table cloth dress!



Something mysterious has happened. Somehow a visit to an old log-clad cabin in the woods has morphed into an enterprise. I think the little girl must have seen something she liked very much. Something made by the mama of the old, cozy cabin. That mama, a mama bear, to be more precise, is a handy, crafty sort of lady who makes her own bread, tends her own plot of earth behind the cabin, and weaves her own cloth (just like all you ladies, right!). As the girl sat at the table in the little brown house and tested each bear's chair, then in turn each bowl of carrot potage, she saw something so beautiful that it captivated her attention. She sat, mesmerized, staring at the beautiful woven cloth on the table, transfixed by the possibilities of this piece of soft, fine linen.

The rest is history. (Or will be, hopefully, if we can get our website up!) Be watching for good things to come from this mysterious cabin in the woods...

I was so excited when you said you were starting a website for your patterns. I check your blog literally everyday. As for the tablecloth, I love the idea of recycling once cherished items to sweet children's clothing. I once tried to sew a pillowcase dress but it turned out just awful and not even worth posting on my blog. I'm sure you'll have better luck!

I am so excited to see your new site. I love all of the beautiful creations you have made so far and can't wait to see what comes next! Melissa, where do you get the adorable Mary Janes your girls wear in all your charming pictures? (I've seen both red and blue, and I would love to know what brand they are/where you get them). Thanks!
