Omg! So adorable! :)
Where are you taking your sewing classes? What is the price? My sister wants to take it up too in San Francisco.
Hi, Anonymous,I took my class with CCSF continuing ed. Here's the link:http://www.ccsf.edu/Services/Continuing_Education/othersemester/fall/index.htmlAlicia was a great teacher. The price for this class is $120. She gives private lessons as well.
SO CUTE! just a tip, i love the onesies with a cover for the hands.. cuz they tend to scratch themselves.. =) yay. i'm so excited for you
Just a heads up: I merged my personal blog with my pregnancy/baby blog and moved it. It's now at http://inciteariot.helava.com.
wow! your onesies are great! i'm super impressed with your sewing skills! i can barely sew a button on!
So impressive and cute! Neeter
Did you know any sewing before you started? This seems kinda complicated. Also, in that class, do they help you along, or do you just have to do what you can to keep up? My sister don't know any sewing. Good luck. I am so happy for you in every way.
wow! Those look so great! do you have a pattern- I would love to find a pattern for the onesies. I love to sew but I haven't done anything as elaborate as that.
Hi, Anonymous, I didn't know how to sew a month ago. The first time I used a sewing machine was in my class. Most people in class were beginners who didn't even know how to thread a machine (me included). Once they teach you how to use the machine, though, it's not that difficult. Everyone went at his or her own pace. I've only made four things so far. My first project was a tote bag (which provided good practice to sewing straight lines). Then, I made a little hat in class. I made these onesies on my own. They were easier than I thought. No need to be intimidated.Cee, I do have some patterns. I'm traveling right now, but once I return home later this week, I'll send you the patter numbers. Once you have patterns, these are super easy. I found the zippers a little difficult at first because I had never sewn them on before, but after a couple of trial runs, I kind of got the hang of them.
The onesies are adorable. In future pattern shopping, you might consider 2 pieces. Our daughter tended to outgrow bottoms before tops because she had crazy long legs. Good news is that at the baby stage, their legs are so seldom straight, so you can get away with a slightly outgrown onesie if there is some stretch in the fabric. Take care.
very fine work!! those are addorable.
Sewing for kids is a GREAT way to start, since kids don't care so much about perfectly straight seams or matched patterns. As they grow, your skills grow with them.And I LOVE fleece--it is such a forgiving material to work with. I made a hoodie for my son when he was 6, and the pocket on the front was crooked, 1 sleeve longer than the other, etc. He totally did not care, LOVED it, and wore it EVERYWHERE. I've gotten much better, but kids make such enthusiastic and encouraging recipients for your first try. Those look professional, BTW.
