I sewed clothes for my youngest daughter and it did not suck! I have this issue where I can't seem to sew clothes very well. most other things.. sure... but clothes are super scary to me. It's totally a mental ("little voice of doubt in my head"). Anyway, I decided to try a class at Stitchlab (in Austin) http://www.stitchlab.biz/ and had the best time. The instructor was great and super patient. In the four hour class ("easy sewing for littles") I had a finished product that I was so damn proud of!
Here it is in all of it's whale and robots reversible goodness!
