The Bag That the Cat Was In

A boring, unworn, and relatively unflattering grey sweater is now a bit more fun with some lace trim!

The blue fabric is just regular quilting cotton, cut into two-inch strips and fed through a bias tape maker. The lace is salvaged from a somewhat odd organizer meant to hang on a hanger (what tiny objects do you put into a closet into lace pockets?)

How cool are these buttons? Thanks, Lex! I was waiting for the perfect place to put them.

And now I think it's time to let the cat out of the bag, since I don't think I can take camouflaging photos any more:

Whoo-hoo! A tiny baby being baked as we speak! Hence all the baggy shirts being made of late...
