Off to the Beach

Following on from my previous post I joined in a sew along with Little Kiwis Closet, to sew the Beachcomber Pinny pattern. 

It appeared to be an easy task  - the pinny was a quick sew but when you are busy with other sewing tasks your time management skills need to be pretty good. 

I did manage to get the pinny made in the required time and its such a cute and easy sew I think that there will be lots more coming out of the sewing room in the near future. 

Little girls who love to collect things will appreciate the big pockets to put all their little treasures in.

The fabric I chose was from the Riley Blake range - Twice as nice and as I love covered buttons or any buttons for that matter, the pinny wouldn't be complete without a couple.

BeachComber Pinny

As you can see its been awhile since I have blogged, always too busy and I thought what better way to get back into by doing a sew along - my first one.

 Little Kiwis Closet has released a new pattern called the Beachcomber Pinny, which is different than most normal pinnies, it has a huge pocket in the front to hold all those treasures.

So I have purchased my pattern and have done days 1 through 3

Day 1. Choosing your fabric, size and options. Printing your pattern and cutting

Fabric Choices - Riley Blake Twice as Nice

Day 2. Assemble the pocket overlay
Day 3. Sew linings, side seams and assemble band

I will post more pictures in a day or two -but so far have enjoyed sewing this cute little pinny. If you want to know more check out the link below
