What are you most proud of? Being able to make things for my children and know that they will be very happy when they received it. My sewing skills are saving her money. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Trace the pattern pieces you will be using. This way you can mark them up and alter them to the measurements of the person you are sewing for. I label them with the person's name so if they ever want another one I have it all ready.
