My latest project ..

Pinafore dress for a baby girl ..

A couple of weeks ago I treated myself to a new sewing machine.  My old sewing machine has given me many, many years of faithful service, but I just couldn't help but be tempted by a machine that h beautiful embroidery stitches and lots of new features.

My first project was to make a pinafore for my baby grandaughter.  We haven't had a baby girl in our family for over 30 years, so it was such a joy to make this. I downloaded the pattern from Etsy and couldn't wait to get started! I love the buttons - they match the check lining and applique perfectly - they came from Etsy too!

I also have a baby grandson, born just a few weeks later, needless to say I have bought the fabric and a pair of dungarees will be on the agenda over the next week or so!
