On a roll
Baby Ava's romper is almost finished. This is the first time I've sewn snap tape. After ripping and re-sewing a couple of places, I am happy with the garment. I used the dotty fabric for the little caps on the shoulders and the bias strip around the arm.
Back with bow.
The bow makes it cuter but is attached with snaps.
Decision-bow or no bow?
Next up for Ava-I'm going to make a reversible top and two bottoms. The ruffled bottom on the left pattern will have eyelet ruffles.
I plan to use the lime green knit for the pants from the pattern on the right. The owl fabric and the blue flowers will be the reversible top. I will use the eyelet on the bottom of the dress/top, too.
Using up stash fabric (mostly).
One day next week my friend will come get the Janome sewing machine and bring her teen girls for some sewing instructions. Hope they enjoy sewing as much as I do.
