Joy of Sewing!
I have discovered JOY! My daughter is growing too tall for kid clothes, so I decided to make her some. Luckily I found this Butterick pattern on sale for 99 cents! Hurray!
I let her pick her own fabrics with some guidance. I had wanted to use some of my fabrics, but a) the fabric line hasn't come out yet, and b) I didn't have enough yardage on hand. And while she wasn't looking, I added this little hand-dyed green applique heart. It was to go with the green in the ribbon. But still not enough green.
Ironically, I almost gave up before I started. I wanted to make garments for her that had finished seams. I thought I needed to buy a new machine, an interlock (is that even the right name?), however, upon further investigation, it turns out that my little work horse of a Pfaff actually has a special foot.
