A quick post showing off my latest bad sewing experience. I know you are all just on the edges of your seats now knowing that another masterpiece from the couture house of Stepford Dreams is about to be revealed...
My friend Cathy who is incredibly talented and clever gifted me with a gorgeous sewing pattern for a pair of baby pyjamas from Oliver and S. I had been on the hunt for a kimono style PJ top pattern for a while and Cathy came to the rescue. She said it was such a great pattern ,really good for the beginner.
Shame I'm no ordinary beginner. I am someone who no matter what I do, just cannot sew. Yet here I am like the nerd that keeps asking you out on a date still making these "special" little sewing creations.
It took hours of yelling at the machine, ripping bits of paper, throwing scissors on the floor and generally acting like an ignorant bull in a china shop for me to complete the PJs for Tinker. Not to forget the countless emails and text messages sent to my Cathy and Theoretic Gal.
They are as wonky as all get out but the little bunny still wears them. God love her. Someone somewhere is looking down at my poor unfortunate child hoping that I lose a finger or have some other accident so I will never be able to make her any more clothes especially when she hits an age where it is so uncool to wear daggy mummymade stuff. Poor kid.
First the red hair now my sewing. Does she stand a chance in the playground?
Anyway here are some pics as promised and as you can see all T wanted to do was undo the snaps.
