Bit by the Sewing Bug

I've totally got the sewing bug lately.  I love to sew for little girls, but my little girl is all grown up.  Then I remember that it is my niece's b-day and so I made her this cute little outfit.
It's Butterick 3140, and I just kind of made up the hair thingy and the bloomers.  I hope she likes it, because it doesn't come w/ a gift receipt.

    1. Yes you can! As someone who sewed their first skirt at age 3, I know how hard and difficult sewing can be, but the truck is to have patience, taje chances, and keep trying. Doing something over is oart if it. Try either a class from a local who can use the money, if you can afford it, a local meetup group, the library fir books and videos, or man6 if the free tutorials online--both youtube and pinterest. But keep in mind most of those I've seen don't know the real professional way, but m9re self taught. For most that m8ght be fine, but you can really see the difference. For professional tutorials, I can recommend craftsy.com. They cist, but not too much and are worth it! Do what you can afford but alsi what it's worth to you, and n9rhing more. You'll feel rewarded if you stick with it, snd love those new pillow covers of yours so much more! Pillows are the easiest thing to sew.

  11. This is a very cute idea and the result is adorable! But the cover you cut up to make it looked to be in amazing shape. I'm only mentioning this because I hope people will reconsider donating items like that and using from the vast array of the many other things out there that are more apt to get thrown out but would look just as amazing.
    Still, great job!
