Already the project pool is starting to fill up with amazing handmade garments. There seems to be a more muted color pallet this season. Kids will always love bright, happy colors, so there is a lot of that too of course, but I’m seeing more grays and mints and pinks. Having lived through the 80s I never thought I would love those colors again, but I have to say, I like what you are doing with them.
