Made By Emmanuelle

This was a secret project for yet to be born little boy.  In fact, it was only supposed to be unveiled next week but souricette 1 (that would be Emmanuelle) wouldn’t have been there.  And she’s so proud of her work.  And she was so happy to do this for her aunt’s baby.  And I knew my sister would be particularly touched.  So I wrapped it up separately so that souricette 1 could give it in person.

It’s been given so now you can see.

I helped souricette 1 with the fabric choices.  She had originally selected three prints that didn’t quite work together.  She loved the shibori and lobsters best so I suggested the red.

Three?  Why of course.  These are reversible.

The pattern is from Handmade Beginnings.  We made size 3-6 months because that’s what I had already traced (made for souricette 2).  It’s an easy, cute pattern.  Perfect for a beginning sewist.

I did the pinning and pressing and some finishing (topstitching, elastic, and bottom hems) but my souricette did the rest.  I put a piece of washi tape on the machine to give her a seam allowance guide.  And she worked so hard.  I told her in advance when some seams were “tricky” (curved).  I was informed that they were in fact not tricky at all so I should stop saying that.  Well then.

I think I have competition for my sewing machine now…
