Our friend, Kari Beth, asked a few of us if we wanted to start a sew club and we jumped at the chance! She probably didn't know what she was getting into since she barely got to work on her own clothes since we kept asking so many questions. :) She was so sweet to teach us how to make ruffle pants! It took us from 8pm-12am one night and 8pm-10pm the next night to finish our first pair but it was worth it!
I made these to go with a shirt I already had for Reagan. If you look closely you will notice the tiny hearts are upside down. :) But overall, I was so pleased with them and so excited they actually fit Reagan! (Sorry about the iPhone pictures)
I won't be doing a tutorial since we used a pattern and I don't think the pattern creator would be happy with that. :) I had never used a pattern for anything before but this was so easy to follow. HERE is the link.
I was so excited about these pants, I made two more pairs last week and got a little faster each time. I loved this bird fabric when I saw it at Joann's and definitely wanted to make some out of it.
I used the same process I talked about HERE to make a matching shirt.
Our sewing club meets every Monday night around 7:45-8 and we rotate houses. We met last night and started on a ruffle bib shirt. We took a picture of our finished pants. My original ones were in the washing machine so I took the bird ones. We have a list of things we want to sew. A skirt, kitchen towel, maybe a dress for adults and more!
Using the same process I linked to above, I made Reagan and Westin a Valentine shirt.
Reagan's shirt matches some pants she already had and I had to add a little bit of the bird fabric I love so much. :)
Boy shirts are getting hard for me! Since he is getting a little older, I have to think a little harder on how to make sure his shirts don't look babyish, cheesy or even feminine. Don't look too close. I still have a lot to learn on sewing circles and not making my back stitch look so crazy. :)
Sewing can be so fun and addicting! I would love to hear about any fun sewing projects you have been working on and leave the link in the comments if you can. Thanks!
