A friend of mine recently stocked up on Yo Gabba Gabba! fabric to make a few goodies for her Gabba obsessed kids. She was heavily pregnant at the time of this purchase. She has since had her third baby and now, so the story goes, is just a little too busy up to make her kids any of the goodies she intended. To ensure at least some things were made this side of their Gabba obsession, I offered my sewing services. Sometimes I can be a little less selfish with me sewing time.
After todays very, very short lunch naps *sigh*, Elva now has a simple peasant style dress made with some rather wild Gabba fabric. I used the Heidi and Finn Sweet Dress pattern (similar to this one).
What can I say, it’s fast, it’s easy, it has sleeves, so is suitable for daycare (sun protection) and it looks good.
I also whipped up a simple ribbon edged skirt with this vibrant fabric.
For those peeps who don’t have kids, or haven’t heard of Yo Gabba Gabba, this is what I’m talking about…
I think I feel my sew-jo slowly returning… *fingers crossed*
