This morning’s wake up came at 5:30am due to a hungry baby “G”. After finishing feeding her I decided to take advantage of the early morning to fit in my hour of sewing (and wash a batch of diapers).
I was inspired to try and sew some little dresses for Greta because I am in love with her cloth diapers. The diapers come in such wonderful bright colors it feels like a shame to cover them up. Just look how adorable she is these diapers!
Plus it gets so hot here during the summer I figured “G” would want to wear as little as possible.
This morning began with my finishing cutting out all the pieces. Then I had to iron the pieces. And yes, ironing is just as tedious as I remember it.
Next I pinned the pieces together. Seeing the dress start to take shape is exciting.
Now I could start sewing! I was excited and it was going well. Then I got to the straps . . . my beginning sewing skills and constant state of sleep deprivation was not prepared to sew a tight curve like that. The sewing on the straps is fairly terrible and I was feeling stumped.
At the end of the hour I completed a good deal of sewing on the dress – even with the funky sewed straps.
Tomorrow I will figure out how the sew the straps in a decent fashion . . . somehow. And I should have a dress at the end of it!
