February 21, 2012This IS Your Granny’s Crafting! Sewing For Girls Edition
By Betty Crafter
One of the great things about having a little girl and being a crafty lady is the opportunity to put my collection of adorable little girl patterns to use! And I have been getting the sewing itch so I went through my collection of fabric and patterns to pick something new out for Little Betty. I am especially a sucker for appliques.
For example, these little sea appliques are blindingly cute:
And these cherries are just classic:
I generally find clowns to be creepy, but I think I could make an exception for this cuteness:
But what do I love maybe even more than adorable appliques? Rick-rack!
But the pattern I think I’m going to go ahead with is this one:
The skirt on view 3 is simply too sweet. I am planning to go all Von Trapp on it with these curtains:
and of course some green rick-rack! I love this fabric so much I may also use it for Andrea’s sew along! (yes, I’m a little behind on the sew along)
Next week I hope to have a finished new skirt for Little Betty. Think I can pull it off?
