Knock It Off Series!

Hi All,

I just wanted to make a quick announcement today to let you all know about the Knock It Off Series that a good bloggy friend of mine (Heidi from Elegance and Elephants) will be hosting in the month of November. Heidi just won second place in this season’s Project Run & Play, so believe me when I say that her Knock It Off series is sure to be AMAZING!

Here’s a a piece of her description:

Have you ever seen an awesome shirt, dress, pants, etc in a store or online for the little one(s) you sew for, and wished you could figure out how to make it yourself?  Save some money and make it your own?  Or maybe it’s something one of your favourite fashion icon (or their kid) has worn?  Well, all next month, an amazingly talented line up of designer moms are going to do just that: knock off a look, garment, or accessory, and show how they did it!  How cool is that?!  All childrenswear…all knock offs…all November!

She’s also created a Flickr group for everyone to join. (I Loovvveeeee it!)
