Smocket Real Good
Smocket real good.
I sewed a Smocket for Spenser. I had been wanting to make her one, but was waiting for the "perfect" fabric. You know how it is. I decided the perfect fabric was this sheet.
I made the reverse side in white cotton with a pocket to match the front. I had to use Velcro at the top instead of tying at the shoulders (because I forgot to add seam allowance), which is fine. It makes it easier for Spenser to remove it. A million and one times. Don't get me wrong. She loves to wear it. It's just more fun to take it off.
And this lovely parcel came from Karyn. Remember when I was sad (complaining?) that I didn't have enough of the blue dotted fabric for the boys' Easter tie and the baby's Easter outfit? Well, look what came in the mail yesterday. Some more of that lovely Dotty Dot fabric. (She's the one who originally sent me the first bit.) What a friend! Thank you, Karyn. But, next time could you send it overnight so I can make the ties? (just kidding)
