And so, I sew.
Here are some creations. And I would show you pictures of the process but I didnt take any because I wasnt sure it would really turn out...but it did, so, happy me. HA.
|like the legwarmers? HA. i love my girl|
|so the dress came about beccause 1) i went to |
target and elsewhere looking for little winter dressses
and they werent warm or cute and 2) because
my sister had some cool sweaters to chop up :)
|i saw these little dresses like pull over jumpers|
in a cool store, locally made, expensive, yada yada.
i liked them because the seams were on the outside
so kinda playing up the whole scrap sweater look...
|the sweater i chopped had a cool cowl neck that i |
was able to save and then i cut out the bodice around it
|i had to add a little ribbon (which missy girl LOVED)|
to keep it on her shoulders because the buttons didnt go
up far enough
|no nap plus a slight from brother equals huge|
dramatic tears...cracks me up.
|look at that drama!|
|the hat was knitted by yours truly. i made up the pattern so, dont ask. (it kinda |
sucks too, strangely big in weird places but...it works)
|oh, the agony! (and yes, i did comfort her...)|
|he REALLY likes it. :)|
|and as long as it keeps him warm and he |
will keep it on, really, who cares?
|and dont worry, i didnt forget baby dear. :)|
she got a pixie hat out of the sparkly fabric...
|seriously so easy to make. cut out pixie shape. one seam up the back, hem up|
bottom edge and edge around face, thread a tie through...voila. HAT.
kind of a hack job but still, cute.
