My baby sister is 13 years younger than me, and she was my first real life doll. I used to sew her fancy dress costumes and plait her hair, and curl it. I now have my very own real life doll, and I can’t wait for her hair to grow long so I can plait it to!
In the mean time, I have been sewing for her. I’ve started with bibs. Do you know how much babies dribble?! A lot! And the shop prices are silly for what is essentially a small triangle of fabric. So, my little baby girl is styled in off cuts, old t-shirts & pretty fat quarters that have been remastered into bibs.
My next project is to make her a sun hat, so far I have made a handful of mistakes, including cutting on the fold line, and giving too big a seam allowance so the body and rim of the hat don’t fit each other, but I will get there.
