I didn’t pay much attention to Tara when I first saw it…and all of a sudden a few days ago I saw it again and knew I HAD to make one. So I did! And I love her! It was so easy to make this, after using my sewing machine for seven years I guessed it was about time to check out the other 28 stitches that it was programmed to do (besides straight and zigzag). And you can see which one I used for all those usually painful curved seams – it was so easy and I love the little scalloped edge. I couldn’t decide between blue or white thread, so I went with the easiest solution – what happened to be in my machine at the time – green. And I like the contrast, how one can see the neat stitching even more. It actually turned out a little big, but in a good way, it was very comfortable, especially as I added that extra piece of material in the front. If you haven’t made this yet, I’d really recommend it as an easy, but fun project.
