Babies’ butts, that is. I just love those little, diapered bottoms so much that I became obsessed with making these little baby bloomers to dress up Pon Pon’s tush!
I used the pattern from a Japanese craft book （「いちばんよくわかる赤ちゃんとちいさな子の服」）that my mother brought back from her recent trip there. They feature many projects suited for beginner seamstress, with plethora of pictures and visual instruction. I’ve been making hand-sewn bags and other accessories for a few years, but this was actually my first garment attempt … but thanks to the book, I was able to made these with no tears!
I used Kokka Trefle Cotton Gauze for this pink version that I got from Fabric.com when I was pregnant with Pon Pon. I suspect that this fabric has been discontinued, as I cannot find it anywhere now. It’s such a bummer because I adore these little cute bears!
For this pair and a matching top (also from the same book), I used Denyse Schmidt’s Posie in Turquoise I purchased from Form and Fabric (great customer service). I love this design and the feel of the fabric so much that I snatched up all the different color variations for other projects.
It’s been months since I sewed up a new project and it feel wonderful to get back on the sewing machine saddle!
