Then I really need lots more practice. At least I am having fun along the way though. Here are some of what I have been working on with my new sewing obsession...
This was my very first creation. You can't really tell, but it is a sweet lavender pattern. It is really plain though, so I am trying to think of something that I could add to it to spice it up. Ideas?
This is a sweet little infant bib that snaps at the neck. The back is lined with terry cloth. This takes so little fabric, I am planning on making a bunch more.
This is a burp cloth trimed in ribbon. I am not sure that I like trimming in ribbon this thin. As you can see in the next pic it is really hard (for me at least) to get the stiches straight.
This is a precious little dress I made for Emerson. I love the fun fabric combinations. The main fabric has brightly colored pinafores all over it. This was challenging for a beginner with all the ruffles, but I did it! If you look closely you will see tons of mistakes...but the fabric pattern hides most of them and it is still very wearable.
