Did anybody else complete the challenge? I’d love to see what everyone made!
Here’s some pictures of what I managed to get done this week….
I think this is my favorite thing I made all week! I’m OBSESSED with pleats, and just love how this skirt turned out… Here’s the tutorial so you can try it out too: Pleated Pocket Skirt
I’m always going back to circle skirts because they’re just so quick and easy! This one is for my daughter’s birthday outfit Circle Skirt Tutorial
Ok, so not clothes, but accessories count too right? I made this purse as a birthday present for my daughter. It didn’t take long, and I think it’s super cute! (The angle of the picture makes the top look a bit crooked, but it’s not really )
Make it yourself: Buttercup Bag Sewing Pattern
Finally, I made this beautiful cape! I thought it would be so cute to have a 2 year old in some old-time fashion! So, I decided to make my own twist on Little Red Riding Hood’s cape… I actually used a Little Red Riding Hood costume pattern to create this
Here’s the back. Not the best picture, but just wanted to point out the hood
Here’s the pattern I used: Simplicity 2571
I did include a lining in mine. Basically, to do this, you’ll want to cut out and sew 2 capes (one lining and one with the outside fabric.) You’ll then line them up, right side together, and pin. Sew the 2 pieces together along the outside, leaving a small opening. Turn right side out, and sew the opening shut. It was the first time I’ve sewed a lining into something so large. I was intimidated at first, but it ended up being a lot easier than I originally thought it would be. I also sewed a button closure instead of the recommended ribbon/tie closure.
So, there you have it! Got a lot accomplished, and I still have a few things left on my list to work on! Maybe I’ll get a few things done this week too
