Adorabearable

Tonight’s post was brought about by the weather but before you leave because you think I’m whining about the rain (more on that later) stay tuned because it isn’t about the weather at all.  

Biking was cancelled and so I used my free time to be creative. Several weeks ago I decided I wanted to make Baby A a dress. So her momma left me a onsie (in my day called a diaper shirt) as the base. 

I went onto the internet and found a few tutorial options. Sometimes the issue is that there’s so many options. Without too much ado I just picked one and went with it. 

I pulled a few pieces of material from my left over stash and decided on the hearts as the base — because of course Baby A has my heart. 


A few cuts and a couple of serger seams later I had the easy parts done. The tutorial writer wished she had a serger — I don’t use mine often but it makes some tasks so quick. 

Then on to the gathering part which is always a bit finicky. I’m not a novice to clothing so I should have remembered that two basting threads are easier that one long one but I forgot. Once I got that on I pulled out the serger again to clean up the edges.


Once prepared the dress is then attached to the onsie with elastic. The nice thing is that the inside of the onsie has only one line of stitching on it. It finished up nicely but I’m not convinced that my elastic didn’t stretch out too much on the onsie. We shall see whether it’s too long or too wide. As a first attempt it looks cute. 


And if it doesn’t suit Baby A it looks good on Bear! Maybe a smidge long but overall pretty darn cute! Can’t wait to see it on Baby A. It’s, I’m totally sure, the first of many gramma made clothing items. 


I mentioned the weather earlier. I’m a farmer’s daughter, a rancher’s sister and a land owner with 110 acres of hay land so I never say no to rain except when the hay is on the ground. It’s been a tumultuous couple of weather days with some real stormy skies. 


My iPhone doesn’t do it justice but Dan’s mega expensive camera does! Isn’t that just an amazing photo!! He’s been out a few times and used our area as a backdrop. Lucky us!!
