Kimono Love

I have been wanting a kimono for some time now but just never got around to purchasing one. I was going to crochet one but knew I didn’t have enough time with all the July activities going on.  I told my mom what I wanted and we tracked down a few tutorials to try. I went and spent WAY to much time at Hancock’s drooling over fabric. Once I found the perfect one I set it up on the counter and asked the lady to cut this beautiful fabric. There are so many beautiful fabrics out there. I fell in love with three different ones but the colors on the bottom of this one just caught my attention immediately. I showed it to my mom and we sat down and made the beautiful piece for my 10th Wedding Anniversary date with my handsome husband.

his material was a little difficult to work with as a beginner so I am looking forward to some fall fabrics. I think a cute plaid one or a mustard yellow knit one would be perfect! Done in the right fabric it would be great for around the house or out and about. If you don’t sew check out Bask Designs. She has beautiful items that are drool worthy and handmade!!
Enjoy!
