One more reason to learn to sew :)

Ok, it's things like THIS that make me really wish I hadn't dismissed sewing as a kid, thinking the only reason to learn to sew was if you wanted to make jumpers and culottes (not cute and vintagey like these though...we're talking the ultimate in homeschool fashion)--both were favorites of my local homeschool community and I didn't see the point in spending a lot of time and effort to craft my own hideous accoutrements. Wish I'd had the foresight to know all the CUTE things you could make!

So after I finish practicing with my little burpcloths and potholders and all those little things, I'm totally gonna try my hand at making Haymitch something like that!

And speaking of Etsy, this is on my wishlist too, and also my latest painting inspiration!

Why is it called Ellis and Hope if only Hope writes??

Yeah, I'm beginning to wonder why our blog is called The Littlejohns Blog. But Em has a good point, you should get Ellis to post something!

I love that little car quilt. I want to make one with just a couple colors like that.

I vote for an Ellis post!
