Sewing has been a chore for me…until now. Not because I didn’t enjoy creating stuff. I did and I do. But, my creative outlets have always been oil painting, scrapbooking or even baking…never sewing…until now. Somehow, knowing that I was going to have a baby girl changed my perception and I have been so inspired by the talented artisans on etsy that I’ve actually started sewing or hand stitching…I’ve not invested in the sewing machine…yet!
First, I bought Bond baby singlets (6 to 12 months) from Australia and sewn colourful yo-yos and buttons onto them. Here’s an example of the one in Lavendar.
And I’ve just finished stitching a really pretty pair of felt booties (newborn to 3 months size). Adorable aren’t they? The free pattern is available at http://www.heatherbaileydesign.com/Booties.html so you can give it a try as well!
It’s a fabulous feeling creating something from scratch for your princess!
