I'm so excited to share all of these with you. I've been looking at this forum for quite awhile and always too chicken to try to make clothes on my own. I started sewing when I decided back in January that I wanted to make my daughters birthday outfit and haven't stopped since!!!

Thanks so much for being an inspiration to me!

Great job! With such an inspiring model/muse, I'm not surprised!

It is better to have crafted and failed then never to have crafted at all.
Yes, I am stalking the Toys and Playthings board. Thanks for noticing!
I'm cheating on Craftster with Pinterest. It's ok though. There's overlap.

Super work! I can't believe you've only been sewing since January! My faves are #2 and #6. Did you use a pattern for those? Love it!

I didn't even think of sewing my daughter's 1st birthday outfit but you have inspired me to give it a go!  Grin

Brilliant - looks like you've really been enjoying yourself !  She's a beautiful little girl and so lucky having a mummy like you.

aww you ladies are all so nice!

#2 is just a little peasant top with bloomers. I made a basic peasant top off of some tutorials I found online and than took an existing pants pattern I had and chopped them up and added elastic to the legs to make them bloomers

#6 is my husband's old shirt! I also made it like a peasant top, just traced over the fabric with the buttons down the center front. I tried it on her and it still seemed a bit too big, so I added two rows of elastic thread to the waistband. That was my first try with elastic in my sewing machine. It was a bit frustrating, but I love love love the look.
