So I have been trying my hand at sewing clothes. So far, I have issues with some things. Like sometimes it takes me reading a certain paragraph of a pattern about 50 times before I know what to do. Or the fact that I often over complicate simple things....
So I have been collecting up patterns for clothes for my kids. I found McCall's Pattern M6022 which I think is super cute and pretty easy!
But in comes me to over complicate simple instructions! And viola! I have screwed them up! lol
Maybe I should just break down and take a freakin sewing clothing class!
Anywho, to show off what I managed to at least get done
E's- DS fabric from Joann's and some red pin dot I had left over.
Made my own bias tape for clothes for the first time. I think I did pretty well at that. And the gathering is fun.
Then R's top is yellow and white polka dot and Retro Floral Tile by Joann's as well.
I really liked the DS fabric and the Retro Floral Tile. They seemed to be very good quality fabric. Is Joann's raising it's standards? :) I hope so.
Oh. Forgot to mention that these two adorable little angels TORE off the bows I had sewn on these tops. Yeah. I was a little perturbed.
Until next time
