After a day of working part-time for my sewing job, shuttling kids, and barely being able to keep my eyes open thanks to allergy meds, I decided I wanted to take on a project. I looked through my One Yard Wonders book this weekend and realized that in the 18 months or so since I bought it, I haven't made one damn thing even though there are several patterns I want to try.
I decided to make the Strapless Bandeau Shorty Jumper for Matea (pages 194&195). Let me say this could not have been any easier. It literally took less than 30 minutes from start to finish and turned out even cuter than the picture, if I do say so myself.
How cute is she?! She'll be finished with kindergarten in just a few weeks and I've been really sad thinking about her being in first grade and gone all day just like Bella next year. No more snuggles with mommy in the two hours we have together between her pickup and Bella's. In some ways, I think sending her off to first grade will be harder than kindergarten.
And Matea approves of the outfit too! She asked me to modify it a little and turn it into a bathing suit pattern so we'll see how that goes.
