It turned out to be a very productive little afternoon for me, but I'll post about my crafternoon project soon. What I want to tell you about in this post is what one of the other crafternooners did.
Allie's mom was one of the participants and while a few of us sewed and Allie worked on a new set of greeting cards, she whipped out a sewing pattern from back in the 1970s and proceeded to trace it out so I could whip up a truly retro project for Abner. How sweet is that?!!?
I was so gung-ho to take a crack at the pattern for these overalls that I tackled it that very night. Much to my surprise, they were super easy to do even without instructions! Just a couple of hours from start to finish and voila...Abner has a cute new Summer outfit.
One thing I'm particularly proud of is that I didn't have to go out and buy any new fabric or notions. The fabric was a hand-me-down from my aunt a few months back. The buttons I had left over from a batch of dresses I did a while ago and the thread was left over from some project that I can't remember. It's always rewarding when you can satisfy a crafting craving and use up some of your stash at the same time.
