Sewing Sunday

Forever? It's felt like it and thankfully while I was camping the scheduled Wednesday post did post at the right time so everything went well. I am way behind on responding back to comments but other than that the blog seems to be ok :) I was planning on posting a Thrifty Find Friday on the 24th but I was too tired ;) If any of you have followed me on Instagram you may know about one of the amazing deals that happened just this weekend!, if not you will have to wait until Friday to find out... (I love keeping you in suspense!) Anyways, onto the item I sewed last week, last Saturday I was left with some free time and so I used one of my Freebie Friday Pixie Faire patterns to make doll sized shorts because unfortunately my dolls do not have any shorts to wear. (How? Not sure...) I used the cut-offs pattern to make it. Right then I had no idea where my needles were specifically for denim fabric so instead I just used cotton fabric. Before I bore you to death here are a few pictures.

I couldn't decide between these two pictures, which one is your favorite? 1 or 2? Sewing the shorts was an adventure I knew the pattern was going to be challenging.And of course definitely on my first try because I have never sewn actual pockets before. The pockets ended up being super easy it was the elastic waistband that gave me the trouble, the first time it accidentally got lost when I pushed it through and then when I sewed up the back of the shorts the elastic slipped and I didn't realize until I tried it on the doll. I took in a few centimeters of the fabric at the sides but at the waist the shorts are still loose. Thankfully this pattern did not leave me frustrated and I can't wait to try again :)  
Thanks for looking!,

  2. These are adorable! I am in need of doll shorts too, I only have the shorts from Grace's city outfit, which don't go with a lot of shirts. I really like these:)

  3. Lindsey is soooo darn adorable!! :D You're seriously making me want her now! I have a feeling that if I got her, though, I'd somehow mess up her hair... :/
