    Default Hello, Sailor!

    I fell in love with this fabric by Alexander Henry because it reminds me of my retired Coast Guard hubby. His beard is white now but he was a ginger when he was in uniform. And he has blue eyes. Swoon.....
    This is a pattern by Blue Calla Patterns but I took a lot of liberties and changed a few things. It's a big bag but will be perfect to take on our trips.

    Toni ... If I keep sewing long enough, will they make their own dinner?

    Very unique. I am sure you will get lots of inquiries about where did you find it. Love the story that goes with it.
