So, my boss, Sally, has a dear friend who just had a baby. And when I hear that someone has had a baby, it just makes me want to craft something. Is it just me? I’ve never met this woman, but I’m sure she’s fabulous if she’s friends with my boss, so I decided to climb the stairs to the craft room and pull together something quick and easy to give to Sally to give to her friend for her baby. [Wow, that was a mouthful].
So, in perusing my blogs on bloglovin [if you aren't using it, you should silly] I found the cutest little crossover pinafore on Smashed Peas and Carrots blog. Check it out for yourself. It looked simple and impressive, so I figured I’d give it a shot. The pattern is only 2 pieces, and as a novice sewer I figured I could make it work. So, I dove into that stash I got from Hancock Fabrics Memorial Day weekend, and this little beauty is what came of just under four hours of work.
I have to say, I’m quite impressed with how it turned out. Although, my stitching could be a little smoother around the curves, but I guess that comes with experience. It was a big hit at work, and I even scored the sweetest little tweet from my boss about it.
Hope you enjoyed taking a look.
