If you have never sewn with Megan Nielsen patterns, you are definitely missing out! Each pattern comes in an adorable velcro-closure pattern sleeve with a booklet (yes, I said a booklet!!) of detailed instructions. The instructions are awesome, but WAIT... there's more. Included in the instruction pamphlet is a SLEW of different variations that you can make to the pattern to make it your own (that's what I chose to do), a place for notes and a place to document previous Banksia creations, complete with a space to keep a swatch of the fabric you used!
Size Made: The measurement guide provided by Megan Nielsen is great! I used this and feel that I really achieved the look on the pattern.
Fabric: Well... this is a bit of an issue. Originally, I had cut out the Banksia, with a cute collar, in a dusty pink with teeny tiny purple polka dots... well, apparently I upset someone somewhere, because after I got halfway through the project, I noticed a slub in the fabric and had to start all over again in the red! Thanks to my stash, I quickly found some suitable fabric and away I went! The fabric requirements are spot on for this pattern - just in case you are wondering!
