My daughter and I worked on a fabulous project yesterday... we made a "kinderquin", which is a kid mannequin out of her exact shape, using duct tape and old clothes. We love to sew, and my daughter wanted to be able to make clothes for herself... the best way to do that is to drape and fit directly on a mannequin. We saw this project in a fantastic book at a craft store -- Sewing Clothes Kids Love by Nancy J.S. Langdon & Sabine Pollehn -- and just had to try it. Now she's working on a blue dress for herself. Fun!
