In between requests and projects that are a must to complete, I like to give myself a creative break by doing something that keeps me motivated and happy. I reward myself with these pauses to keep things exciting.
This month my “fun” project is baby leggings! Who doesn’t love stretchy pants!! My serger sewing machine has been hard at work sewing these tiny pants up. These are some of the fun knit fabrics I’ve been working with.
Pink and Black Chevron
This pair was one of my first to experiment with. I used the stretch stitch on my sewing machine for the waistband and hem. I wasn’t too crazy about how the stitch looked on the top side but I was able to put the leggings together.
Red and Black Hounstooth
Brown Moose print
Once I got to this pair I was starting to become a somewhat of a tiny legging expert. I went out and bought the double needle attachment for my sewing machine to get a more refined finish. It was a GOOD buy! I love how the waistband and hems look using the double need instead of the stretch stitch.
Here is a happy model with his tiny Moose pants
It’s hard to tell from the photos but these are super tiny, ranging in sizes from newborn to 18 months. My goal is to stock up on various sizes and prints to have them ready in the fall for a shop release.
