On the right is a sweet little bloomer set I made for a customer. If you remember I made a lot of these little crawfish tees for The Boy's first birthday, and the bloomers are like the ones I made for The Middle Child's Hawaiian 4th of July gathering. Very cute!
I really love the bloomers. They are a cute alternative to shorts. And the elastic thread on the leg hem makes it SO EASY. Of course, having a serger doesn't hurt either. I got a whole bunch of different colors in the gingham. I've already got a couple done for my girls to wear for the remainder of the summer. I think I want to dress them up a little, maybe with bows on the leg, or a ribbon around the waist? I don't know, I'll think on it for a little while. Maybe when I'm lying on the BEACH! Yep, we decided to join the girls, my mom, and my sister's family on the little beach getaway this coming weekend. I am very happy that my awesome man decided he needed a break. You know he gets tons of vacation days, but never uses them. To say he is a work-aholic is an understatement! But, he loves what he does.... can't hold that against him! I tend to be a sew-aholic at times, so I guess we are even! :)
So, in honor of all things BEACH...
Here is a hooded towel for my Godson. I love how the design stitched out. I have the Embird embroidery software that allows me to combine different designs. This is actually three separate designs, with the waves being one that was repeated. Here is a closer look.
The little ship is an applique.
And here is another cover-up made from a beach towel. You can find the awesome tutorial for it here. I just love the big buttons. This is for a size 7/8, and I'm pretty sure, that is the largest size you will get for a standard beach towel which is usually 30" wide.
So colorful, and very original! I think the next step of this pattern is to add a hood. But for now, there are a few things I have to do before it is off to the BEACH! If I finish in time, I'll try to post before I go, but if not....until MUCH later...
