This post doesn’t have a tutorial, but I just wanted to show off a couple of things 🙂
As I mentioned before, Peach just celebrated her first birthday. Her great-grandma (my paternal grandmother) is an incredible seamstress and has already made some gorgeous clothes for the kids, but I think this gift takes the cake. My mom and I gave her a smocker for Christmas last year, and she made the most beautiful and perfect outfit for Peach! She hand-sewed all the detail at the top – isn’t that incredible?? The bottoms are supposed to be capris, but they’re more like pants now, which means Peach will get to wear them for a while before she outgrows them! Yay!
I also had a project commissioned last week as well. A friend used to admire the diaper kit I had for Monster when he was a baby, and asked if I’d make her one to give to her sister, who is having a little girl. I bought some fabric a while back just because it was pretty, and it was perfect for this project! Funny story, I appliqued “ava” on it at first… should have double checked the name! Luckily I sent my friend a picture before I put the changing pad together and she corrected me so I didn’t have to undo it. I changed up my method on the diaper envelope a little, and like the outcome – instead of just stitching up the sides where it’s folded, I started in one corner and stitched around 3 sides (left, top, and right) to give it a more polished look. I still backstitched at the top of the envelope sides, though, because it’s going to get some tugging.
More tutorials to come, I just wanted to brag a little in this post!
