A lovely way to spend a few hours…

15 Mar

I believe I’m becoming addicted to my little sewing machine at the moment – just loving spending a few hours in my bolthole trying to make something reasonable…

Anyway another pattern found by Shwin Designs and it’s called ‘Summer Breeze’, a really sweet baby dress with little straps. I made this with a couple of fat quarters and I chose a grey polka dot fabric partly because I think my dil will like it and actually I really liked it too.

I brightened it a bit by appliquing a pink heart on the bodice and the pattern was really incredibly easy to follow. I was so neat with this one – even bound the seams between bodice and skirt – well don’t want the baby to be uncomfy do we?? I sewed little owl buttons on the back too which makes it look a little different. As a finishing touch, I hemmed it with a row of hearts….

Little owl buttons!
