I made something!
I just finished up at my sewing machine. And it’s the first time I’ve sat down since Christmas Eve when I was hurriedly finishing the last of my gifts. It was a small little project, but it’s cute factor to time spent ratio is totally in my favor. And that is my kind of project.
I bought this pattern last week and today I sat down to finish up pretty much the best baby gift ever. Really. Ever. There are so many cute things for little girls. Making a little skirt, or an apron or hairbows or ruffled onesies is a piece of cake. But there aren’t that many super cute things for baby boys out there. Bigger boys? Yes. Babies? They kind of get the shaft.
This little onesie only took me about 30 minutes to put together. Actually, the hardest part was picking out which fabric to use for the ties and suspenders. You know, among the derth of good boyish options. Sigh, in my perfect world I would design fabric. For girls AND for boys. What a concept. I have four more cut out and waiting for a spare 30 minutes. Now that this one is done, I am searching out places to buy plain white onesies in bulk. Because I kind of want to make one for everyone I know. Seriously. It was just the thing to get me out of my sewing rut. Or non-sewing rut as it were. [ Suspenders and Tie pattern from WinterPeach. And it’s only $4. A $4 well spent I’d say. ]
