Urban Kimono Sneek Peek!

So we have been pretty busy here at heidiandfinn - sorry for the lack of new posts! :)
we are working on creating some really great stuff for our new store

Also we are preparing for our first clothing trade show in september, we hope all our canadian fans that are in ontario will stop by and say hi, we will have lots of goodies to see, lots of OOAK and limited production clothing to browse, lots of new accessories and bedding, and of course some great deals on heidiandfinn pdf patterns (CD packages). But more info on that later......

Sooooo.... we will probably be a bit slower on producing new patterns...hope you all understand

But We have been working on some things...and for a quick sneek peek, here is the latest pattern that will be available by the end of the week:

The Urban Kimono

a REALLY comfy and cute sweater that is super quick to make! a bit longer in length so it makes a great tunic and keeps their little tushes warm in cold months. it can be shortened to make are more traditional sweater the hits at the hip - both look super cute. And since there are no buttons, ties or snaps - it makes this a really great option for little ones that want to dress themselves, just pop over their head, or step into it!

anyway - hope you all like it

we are also working on the bubble dress pattern, since we have had so many requests (we are  glad you all like it so much 'cause we love it too! ), we will keep you posted on this one

thanks again everyone - and remember the photo contest is ongoing - so keep taking great photos of your creations and sending them our way, you never know - it could get you some free patterns !

3. Check pdf for spelling mistakes or pattern labeling mistakes, or any other mistakes (...there are probably a lot :) )
4. Provide a good Picture of the finished product, both of shirt on its own and in action on a little boy (Bonus **if it is a great picture and we use it on our website - you could get even more free patterns! yay)

what you need:

1 yard of lightweight to med. weight material for main shirt
1/4 yard of fusible interfacing
Various small scraps of fabric for the "military stripes" above pocket
5 or more matching buttons (depending on how many you use to close the front)
matching thread, sewing machine (obviously!)
optional - patches, embroidery work for embellishment for front or back

if you think you are up to being a tester - let me know by commenting below along with the size you would like to test and your contact info
i will email you the pdf file once all the testers have been chosen (you will recieve the pdf file with all the sizes although i will only need you to test the one size you are picked for)
I will be picking on a first come first serve basis again - so comment soon

thanks again everyone!
