storytime button-over




Storybooks enchant two girls turning the pages, inspecting the lush drawings, hearing mom's voice saying the words, telling the story. One girl tries to steal the sister's coveted book. Tears, then a loud cry. Story time is over. At least the newly sewn storytime button-over is still intact, no rips or tears on it.

This pattern will be found in our shop, (as soon as we get our website up, hopefully soon!) And hopefully it will bring only cozy reading and smiles to your home. No book stealing, and no tears!

You have to stop TEASING with these photos. We MUST have the real thing! Hurry, hurry please!
This one is one of my favorites, but my request is that you make it sized up to a 5. I like little girls to look like little girls and this is just too cute!

Darling. Just darling. Hmmm. My daughter is too big for that, but I'm thinking a boy version ???

Oh, "Boucles d'Or et les Trois Ours", my "almost 3 years old"'s favorite right now.
We read it every day at bedtime.
So happy to comment today as I am usualy a silent reader and admirer of your multiple talents.

Lucky said...

oh god - that 2nd pic - be still my heart!

that is a pic for any girl who has a sister...

Grosgrain Kathleen said...

Oh your daughter is so adorable...even mid-tears. I'd say 90% of the photos I take of my children are of them in tears.
On a separate note, I love the non-knit material onsie. It's casual but not too casual and I love the pinstrips paired with the polka dots. Very summery:)

LOVE your photos and the button-over. How can I be sure to be notified when the shop is open? I have a newly-married son so my hopes and wishes for grandchildren may come true soon! I want to make some clothes NOW! Let me know how to get on a list to be notified. I would appreciate it!
