(I'm thankful I'm learning how to layer my clothes because I can wear so many more of my dresses!)
Starting this last weekend we are definitely in the showers and parties season of the year. We had an engagement party this weekend, I have a baby shower next weekend and then a wedding shower the following weekend.
Now that I have a sewing machine I am pretty excited to put it to use for some of the showers that I will be going to. A few weekends ago I made this lion for a gift, and I added another present this weekend.
First I made this little skirt from an old t-shirt.
I followed this tutorial.
The shirt I used had a few embroidered flowers on it, and I just covered it up with little rosettes.
I love how it turned out!
Then I made a little onsie to go with it:
And now I have a cute little outfit to give:
Then I couldn't stop making little onsies. It got easier the second and third time too. The hardest part is sewing around the tiny little onsies. It is tricky to not sew the back side together.
To make your own, you just cut out a pattern on paper and trace it onto heat bond or double sided fusible paper. Follow the directions on the package. For mine I just ironed on the paper to the fabric. Then pulled off the other side and ironed it onto the onsie. Then I sewed around the edges.
Sure wish I didn't have to go to work tomorrow and could just stay home and make more!
Hope you had a good weekend!
