The market is in full swing now, so I'm spending the majority of my time knitting. However, my trusty ol' sewing maching that I blogged about here, was becoming much too finicky, and my list of sewing projects kept getting longer and longer. The solution? A new sewing machine! Woohoo!
So over the last week I've really been enjoying my new machine. The only problem is that what I know about sewing (especially sewing from a pattern) could fit in one paragraph, on one page, of a ginormous book. So off to YouTube I went, in search of some good Sewing 101 classes.
I happened upon Georgia Leigh's Puking Pastilles channel/etsy shop, and instantly fell in love with her videos and patterns. She assumes you know nothing (which I do), and starts at the VERY beginning (which I needed), then walks you through making her adorable Ankle Biters Toddler pants pattern, step by step.
So of course I had to buy the pattern. Ruby's birthday is next week, and I thought it would be a perfect little gift for her! So I printed the PDF pattern, ironed my fabric, and got to work!
Voila! In less than 2 hours I had the cutest little pair of pants all done! And Ruby loves them. I couldn't wait for her birthday to try them on her, so she wore them today. It was such a fun experience - so later this week I'm moving on to Georgia Leigh's Graduated Baby Block Pattern. :) You can find all of her patterns here in her brand new Etsy shop!
