I'm still on the 'handmade christmas present making' bandwagon.
I'm heading off for a christmas get together with friends thisafternoon, so I had a deadline to have the gifts ready for the kiddies. I'm aiming for about 95% handmade this year... with a few purchased things as well.
This mini pinnie is for a friends little daughter. I found the vintage pattern at the Oppy a few months ago for 50 cents. It's a Simplicity 9513 Size 2 Toddler Jiffy pattern from 1982. I was supposed to add a lacy ruffle along the bottom, and there's also a pattern for bloomers, but I know my girlfriend wouldn't like either of those so there was no point adding them.
The pattern called for buttonholes and buttons, but my machine is too temperamental when sewing buttonholes, so I used my snap press instead.
This was super simple and probably only took about an hour to make. I probably spent longer procrastinating over the fabric choices from the stash..... another tick off the list.
