It's great that you're participating in grosgrain's project! I'm looking forward to seeing all the lovely projects she'll feature. BTW, a blog award's waiting for you at http://stepalica.blogspot.com/2011/05/jos-jedna-nagrada-another-award.html
I used this pattern the Xmas before last to make a bunch of slips. Not only did it teach me how to work with elastic (I had just started sewing) but the results were great.
Love this pattern!
Thanks for your comments; I read each and every one! xo Gertie
