I finally got around to making one of the baby kimonos from the free pattern on the Habitual web site. See here for the free pattern: http://habitual.wordpress.com/2008/07/14/updated-kimono-pattern/
I have been wanting to make one for awhile and was recently reminded of it by another woman who completed one. I had it all cut out last week but couldn’t find the right color green thread until yesterday. This project really made me wish that I owned a bias tape maker too! I think I will suggest it to my husband as a great stocking stuffer idea for next year. My fingers had too many close calls with the iron as I made the bias tape. I found the walking foot to be really helpful when finishing the thick ends of the binding.
