Springtime sewing

Bertie overalls from Olives Friend Pop, Autumn/ Winter 2010

So I didn’t set the sewing machine up in the closet, but just in time we have managed to start clearing out and organizing the “storage bedroom” as we call it. And since the weather isn’t nearly as cold, although we have been getting snowy flurries here and there, I feel like I could actually sew in there with a thick sweater on. I haven’t been very good about taking pictures lately but I have been getting some knitting sewing projects started.

I have been feeling totally obsessed with this cute jumper made by Olive’s Friend Pop and continue to lust over all of their cute collections.  Alas, I will never have the budget to buy high end children’s clothing. I had the brief thought that I could make up a pattern for this, but lets be serious people. I would be lucky to actually sew this with a pattern. I haven’t looked at the patterns at the fabric store recently, but last time I was disappointed in the selection. This vintage pattern (Simplicity 6157) is very similar. It wouldn’t be too hard to add the shoulder cap. The baby short-alls are super cute. Plan 1. search my moms pattern stash. Plan 2. buy the pattern online. I have this idea that I’m going to sew Little Bug something really cute and she is going to hunt for Easter Eggs in it this year. Realistic? No. Oh, and she needs a Winter bonnet like Meg to go with it too.
