Effectively being a single parent to two little ones is an amazing change in my life and props to all the women raising children on their own out there. I had no idea.
For patterns, I have a lot of ideas and I love getting requests. If they are for kids, I don’t mind trying to put together free patterns and sharing them. In August, someone requested the pattern for a hooded robe like I used on my kids Jedi costumes. I’m horrified it took me so long to get to it. I do a lot of side jobs and two of them sucked all my time this fall. I finally finished it this morning. Please let me know if you have any problems with it. The hood is one size fits all because it pleats into the collar. My kids have giant heads so it should work.
