My spontaneous valentine’s day project is now complete and ready to send to some very special people. I was browsing blogland late on Saturday night (sad I know) and came across this over at Leonie’s.
So on Sunday afternoon, once the family and I had returned from our very romantic outing to swimming lessons, I got to work and made…
…five sets of baby pyjamas using singlets that I had on hand (barely used since I’m more partial to onesies) and some sheeting and a pillow case. My fabric stash is rather pathetic so I didn’t have a lot of options on hand.
I embellished some more singlets but didn’t have enough fabric on hand to make more pyjama pants.
It was such a great feeling sewing using my new machine for such a worthy cause. I couldn’t help noting the irony as I sewed of me, the amateur sewer, sitting in the Australian suburbs sewing for Vietnamese orphans while the families of exceptional tailors and seamstresses worked away in townships such as Hoi An for affluent tourists.
