Most of my projects so far have been for kids but I would have to say my favorite has been the skirts that my daughter can wear over and over again. :)

Sarah Craig said...

I love to make reversible dresses with buttons on the shoulders for little girls -so useful and easy!! Also quilts, of course!!

Lisa Marie said...

I love to make baby quilts! Also, when my son was young (and a couple times during high school and college) I had great fun making really creative Halloween costumes for him. Costumes are fun because you can just make it up as you go along!

My best friend has a 3 year old daughter - I love making skirts for her! They're just simple things, but I love using fun fabric (just remnants from Joann's is enough) that makes her giggle :)

Thanks for the chance to win!

annmarie said...

Besides quilts, I enjoy making little stuffed fabric birds that I then hang as a mobile. Thanks for the chance to win some great fabric.

Tanya said...

I've mad cushions, dresses and shorts for the kids which I have loved but am in the process of making a tent that hangs over the dining table with fabric windows, bunting and all. A rainy day savior for lots of playtime. Found the idea in a book called Cool Spaces For Kids. Think is will be my favorite :-)).
