Hey everybody! I am a serious long time lurker of this site. I absolutely love it!! What ya'll are about to see is my first recon...my first sewing of anything, besides a basic rectangular pin cushion and couple of stockings. I am so excited!

There is a craftalong going on right now.. 50 projects in 2010.. I have not posted on the thread b/c it moves so fast I'd get lost but I am giving it a go. I think it'll keep me motivated.

This is my number 1. I took some before pix on my camera but that was before I realized I couldn't send it to my computer...or maybe I can but can't figure it out..lol. I started off with a basic cupcake shirt that was too small, some pink with white polka dot fabric, and a too small pink long sleeved shirt. I was going to make it long sleeved but I just couldn't figure out the sleeves...so it stayed short sleeved. Well here it is!!


Front shot.


Side shot.



This is my angel face. Oops...I left a couple of threads on it. I should've also made is a little bit wider..she's got a little belly. I love it tho.


Well let me know what ya'll think!!

so cute~  Grin
You did an awesome job, i would totally believe that you bought it that way!

Teehee and your angel face is so adorable with those cheeks. It would be hard to not call her "Cupcake"  Tongue

I like how you spliced the new fanric into it instead f just sticking it onto the bottom edge.  It looks more like it came that way, instead of that you added some fabric to make it longer.  I think its adorable.

Sewing is not for the faint of heart

I was looking for the shirt that was your first sewing project and it took me a bit to realize what you had sewed. Impressive! I couldn't tell it was handmade at all! My first project was a disaster and a LOT of frustration Smiley

Thanx so much for the comments!! They make me happy!

It was frustrating for sure...expecially when it came to trying to put the long sleeves on. As you see, I gave into the frustration.
