I sewed the panels together one at a time front side facing. (side note I just learned how to do a french hem and wished I would have on this skirt)
So I grabbed the scissors and cut....
My sewing machine was not made for this lol but all in all I think it turned out really cute and she loves it! and I had some lady in the grocery store ask me where I got it... so that kinda boosted my confidence a little about the whole situation, so if you want to make one and never have let me know how it went for you, or if you have questions about it let me know too cause I realize its not as technical as other tutorials.
Here is what the basket looked like:
I was very inspired by many people that craft blog and are on etsy and as soon as I figure out how to give props for all the insperation I will get on it. And I guess I should add that at the time I was exspecting our 4th kido... so there is another reason for my breif depature for here.
Fourth of July brought about my first clothing sewing lesson... again another learning lesson. I feel in love with pillow case dresses the minute I saw them... as it looks everyone with a sewing machine has! I didnt have any pillow cases that were cute so I went a looking and came across a bandana sale... so I picked up two red ones and headed home. This is what came out of that:
Ok my little Lou doesnt give it justice... it is really cute.... she is 3 and a tad on the puny side, so I think im going to try and bring the sides in a little more A framed on her so she doesnt look like she is in a bag. ;) but as you can tell she loves it (PS my work space is a work in progress, so sorry about the mess and cell phone picture)
