I decided to bite the bullet and actually SEW an article of clothing for Hannah!
Scary, I know.
I’m not sure what I was thinking when making this decision. I blame it on being pregnant. 🙂
I had a bunch of fat quarters that reminded me of Halloween and I decided to make her a tiered skirt with them. I used this AWESOME tutorial. I would not have known what I was doing without it!
I did make the shirt all by myself. Well I didn’t actually SEW the shirt…I appliqued it with a pumpkin. I would share the pattern, but I have no idea how to transfer that onto a computer document. If anyone knows how to do this, I would love to figure out how.
I am actually quite proud how well the skirt turned out! I mean, for never sewing anything like this in my life…I think I did pretty good. (just don’t look too close)I also never knew how useful youtube was until I searched on youtube “what is a gathering stitch” and “how to baste.” Yep, YouTube has basically taught me all I know about sewing 🙂 Which now consists of sewing a gathering stitch. I still don’t understand what basting is all about… 🙂I will be shocked if this thing doesn’t fall apart in the washer! I’m sure you will hear about it if it does! 🙂
