Welcome everyone to my very first blog entry. I have never done this before so I hope it all works out. If it does I hope you enjoy reading what I am up to.
I will post each new item I create and any useful info and links I use for your benefit.
To begin with I will post items that I have made up to now.
Last night I made a ruffle bum nappy cover using the MADE Diaper Cover tutorial. This is such a great site with very easy tutorials and free patterns. Dana is the reason I have began to blog as I am totally addicted to reading hers. I hope I can be at least half as interesting as she is. Anyway back to my creation. I added 3 ruffles across the bum for cuteness and the directions for these I found here Little Betty Ruffle Sunsuit. I found that once I attached my ruffles I didn't have enough room for the waistband so I just added a waistband of 2 inches folded over to accommodate the elastic. The fabric is "Puppies on Salmon" from the "Everything but the Kitchen Sink" Fabric line and "Little Hearts All Around" from the "Lamour" Fabric Line.
I have to admit I did struggle with folding over the legs for the elastic casing but I didn't iron them so that may have been part of the problem. Next time I'll do it properly and we'll see if it makes a difference.
Any way that is my first post. I would love to hear your comments and look forward to my next post. Seeya then.
