Hi Y'all! Welcome to my new Wednesday feature!
I'm so excited to share my passions with each of you.
Some of you may be visiting from KB Stitch Designs...
if so welcome!
I typically blog about farm life and being a farm wife & mom.
Today starts the first day of blogging about a passion of mine....
I love to sew...a little bit of everything.
Mainly I sew fabric buntings for my Etsy shop, Cookies & Milk Too.
But I also sew clothes, home decor, etc.
|This was a custom blanket for this little cutie.|
After dropping tons of cash on adorable baby clothes for the Farmgirl,
someone asked at church, "That is so cute! I know you sew...did you make her outfit?"
My heart sank, my palms got a little sweaty when I had to admit... "No, I bought it." :(
Now don't get me wrong I have sewn her a few things...
I mean I did make her about 1/2 a dozen dresses that she outgrew by a month old...
and there is this one that finally fits.
But honestly most of her clothes I have bought from adorable little stores I find online.
But after the sweet mama at church asked I couldn't help but think...
I should be making most of her clothes...
I mean really... I SEW!!!
Will it save me lots of money...no,
Will it save me lots of time...no,
but it will make me happy so the 2 things above are kinda irrelevant.
The first thing I did was scour Pinterest looking for ideas.
I decided I would love to make her a little peplum top since she is trying to start crawling and we have found that dresses seem to trip her up....on 2nd thought maybe I'll make a few more LONG dresses too LOL.
I also decided on the peplum top because I like that look for summer
and plan to make her a couple of swim suits
The Farmgirl is like me, fairly pale, so she will need all the sun protection she can get.
I searched around for a top that I could use for both swim and casual wear....
Low and behold in came KB Stitch Designs!! (affiliate link)
The pattern was easy to follow and I love that it comes with the layer option so I only have to print the pages I need for the size I'm sewing. I also love that I can pick up where I left off without having to completely retrace your steps when someone needs to nurse, a potty break or I have to go feed cows.
Would you like to give it a try? You can grab any of the patterns at 35% off with the code "firstbirthday" through the 14th.
