Ahhh Sewing!

I am making my daughter's pig Halloween costume.  I decided to make a pair of shorts that have a round shape to them, to mimic a pig, but she can also wear them everyday as well.  I saw a pair I loved at homemade by jill (great blob BTW) and I decided to buy the pattern (Puppet Show shorts).  It is a great pattern. I easily made the shorts by myself (this is the third item I've ever made from a pattern and the previous two were not too great).  I still have trouble with seam allowances if my presser foot isn't the match for the allowance, but it worked pretty well eyeballing it.

Here's the end result:
 I love the prairie pockets!
 Next, I sewed some cute little strawberry shoes for a 4 month old (Halloween!) and they turned out great.  I chose the colors to match the costume, and I know they will fit her well :)  I also decided to list them in my etsy shop!

Happy Halloween!

    Yay! The shorts look awesome! And can't wait to see the shoes! They are going to be so cute with her costume :)

    Thanks! It was fun trying to make the petals work on the elastic band, but I think it will be obvious what she is and I hope the match the colors perfectly! Thanks for asking me to help you :)
