Although I am sad that I am not a finalist for the Lil Blue Boo / Dharma Trading Design (shed a little tear) I am very proud of my friend Ashley. Ashley is new to sewing and just recently got a sewing machine and one of her outfits is a finalist.
Ashley is the one that told me about the contest and told me I should enter. So I think that you should all go over to Lil Blue Boo and vote for Ashley. She is finalist #15 my hero. Her husband is currently in Afghanistan and she made this for her daughter to wear when they go see him later this month.
Although I wasn't a finalist I have received many compliments on my bubble shirt and am currently developing a pattern for it along with another similar shirt. Ashley is going to be one of my pattern tester along with my mother. If you would like to be my third test leave me a comment and I will pick one lucky reader to get my pattern and test it out for me.
