I can’t even believe this is true – but it’s December 2nd, and my Christmas tree has yet to be put up. Gasp!!!! Not only that, but I have not put out a single Christmas decoration yet. Moan. Insert frowning emoticon here.
HOWEVER, I have managed to begin the process of sewing Christmas “things” (aka. clothing!) for my kids. Sometime this weekend I’ll show pictures of the kids’ family photo outfits … but for tonight, I wanted to show you my most recent project for Rosamund. A Baby SMOCK! Yes, it’s what you’re picturing in your head. A sort of apron-like top…sort of a like a pinafore. I found a pattern. I used it. I love it. I will make more!
You have to use your imagination when choosing these patterns because their photos/renderings are often quite
hideous outdated. I knew I would be using a Christmas plaid for the outer fabric, and I decided to use a polka dot for the lining to keep the vintagey feel to the piece.
This project really is very simple – especially if you leave off any embellishments. I can even see a bazillion options for boys as well.
Time: I’d say anywhere from 1 to 2 hours depending upon what embellishments you add.
Cost: $6.50….Pattern-$1. Fabric – 2 fabrics, about 1/4 yard each so approximately $2.50 for fabric, $1 for buttons, $2 for rick rack.
I hope you’ll send me photos of what YOU come up with!!!
