So it all started when we were snowed in several weeks ago... I was trying to be productive and clean out my "art" closet for the new little babe thats coming and I found some art supplies and fabric. I thought it would be so fun if I could figure out how to use my sewing machine. (or my mother's machine that is forever on loan) Previous to this venture I have only sewn one apron during a class I took at Queens, in which the teacher became ill and I never finished the class...
With some time on my hands, and the snowy streets keeping me indoors I began to create- using one pattern and then imagining from there. (or trial and error) Whenever I got stuck (or jammed the machine) I would You-Tube a sewing demo! You can learn everything on there!!!
So... my addiction began and here is my baby collection so far!
This dress is my most proud effort I think.
Since I'm not a big fan of a lot of baby prints and girly pinks I began rummaging through some of my old clothes to get some ideas. Then I had a new idea! This is one of my sweater-shirts that I turned into a baby outfit!!!
This is the most funny to me. This is also one of my shirts, although it looks like my little doll model is ready to go to a Kiss concert in this jumper outfit. (My husband thinks this doll is the weirdest thing- it's just that it's my only model at the moment... :)
Summer jumper with hand-sewn headband.
High-wasted skirt, handmade bird appliqué and hand-sewn headband!
This is a larger size for 18 months, but you get the idea.
These are Target little boy shoes that I added little buttons to make them a little more girly.
Weird but cute bird animal.
If I can get it together, I may start a line that will sell on Etsy... SEW I'll let you know!
(puns never get old to me)
