Little Bird has been with us for 5 months as of Saturday! She’s the lucky recipient of this just-for-her Adrianna of Crafterhours creation, and she told me she wanted to question the designer about it herself, because as the third child, she’s in a hurry to catch up the the big kids who’ve already had lots of time in the blog spotlight. So here’s the transcript of her interview with Adrianna. Enjoy!
So, Adrianna, while we’ve never met, I have a feeling we’ll get along well. I mean, this outfit! It’s so me! Tell me how you pulled this look together. This fabric? This pattern?
Well, you may not have been aware, but I had been extremely delinquent in sending you a present to congratulate you on accomplishing birth. Your mom may want to take some credit for that, but we all know who the real hero is here. I had printed out this adorable (and free!) jumpsuit pattern for a long-ago KCW and it never went farther than the paper stage. Makes me wonder how many other printed patterns intended for KCW are sitting out there in pattern purgatory. I figured now was finally the perfect time to put it together, and I had the bird fabric in my stash just waiting for someone with a bird name to come along and claim it! By the way, in case you’re not fully proficient in world languages yet, this pattern is in Dutch. Open it in Chrome and it’ll translate it for you. Other readers might have some issues with that part, but since you’re an infant I’m sure you can show them how to operate their computers.
I love the wide armbands and the beautiful cover hem stitching. So thoughtful of you to change the thread color just for me! Was that a big pain?
Well it sure would’ve been, if I’d ever had to change out my coverhem thread! Luckily, much like your household, we are predominantly girl here and haven’t encountered many hems that need a color other than pink. Actually, I can show you a trick to change out your serger thread, but not until you’re at least 6 months old. I love the wide bands too, except you’ll probably have noticed that the foot bands are on crooked. I apologize for that. I was hoping that when you wore it your unbelievably adorable face would distract anyone from noticing. Well done. Fist bump.
I was really REALLY excited to hear you’ve got a new pattern in the works. Have you considered a bird-themed name for it?
Hm, well I would, but much like EVERY OTHER NAME EVER INVENTED, bird names are already claimed by another indie pattern maker. I will give you a hint and say that it starts with the first two letters of your name though. Can we count that?
I hear you’ve got a big move planned for this summer. Once you’ve got that taken care of, you’re coming to visit, right?
Um, absolutely! Probably even before I’ve gotten that taken care of. The stuff will be in boxes for 3 months, another weekend can’t hurt, right? Can you pencil me in for some time in late July? I’ll bring snacks. I hope you enjoy nutella ice cream and cheetos. They’re both dairy based so I’m sure your mom will approve.
Or if I can convince my mom to bring me to DC to play, what’s high on your America to-do list?
Well, what I’d like to do first is go to Five Guys and order us both a little cheeseburger with mayo, lettuce, and pickles. I’ll eat mine, and then you’ll claim you’re on some crazy new fad diet where you can only drink milk directly from human beings. So then I’ll eat yours too. After that we can go fabric shopping!
Thank you so much for thinking of me and making this fun gift — and for letting me interview you. I can’t wait to meet you in person!
Couldn’t agree more, little one! Glad you like it!
PS: You might need a new publicist. Your mom said you were a big baby. I personally held this garment and saw how tiny it was and was afraid it would be too small on you. So now we all know the truth, hmmm?
