What's Next?

For my birthday back in May, I treated myself to two books that I have had my eye on.  The first one is Sew Liberated's GROWING UP SEW LIBERATED:

I salivate over all the wonderful ideas every time I open this book and it is difficult to decide what I will make first. After seeing Dana's success with the pattern, I am contempating making Noodlebug a hooded cape.  I have been slowly adding to Noodlebug's dress-up collection and I think this would make a perfect addition to the Pirate vest and Cowboy vest I made from Dana's tutorials and the Superhero cape I made from Jenny's tutorial.  There is also a wonderful Explorer bag in the new book that I have on my Creative To Do list.

I also bought this book:

So many lovely things to make in here!!!  Noodlebug's little girlfriend turns 4 this Fall and I'm thinking I need to make her a tutu along with a crown and wand.  These patterns intimidate a little bit because they seem so complex in their construction but I've heard wonderful things about these patterns and I can't wait to try them!!!

I also need to start thinking about Noodlebug's Halloween costume. I am thinking about doing a costume for Max from WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE but I need a good pattern idea.

What are YOU working on?

I have yet to get my hands on both of those books, they look so great! You have to show us what you make from them!

My kids, who are way grown-up, still remember the costumes and dress-up paraphernalia they had.
