Today is a great day. Today I am victorious. Today I am proud of myself. I made it – really made it all by myself. I tried something new and manage to complete the task.
I have not been sewing much since I went to secondary school (Swedish högstadiet). We had an awful teacher and that did not give justice to the craft. Everything became boring sewing, stitching, crochets, knitting. It was horrible and I never managed to create anything of true value, at least not in my own eyes. From time to time I have made an effort to try to craft but failed. Bad memories haunting me. I have not had patience nor the joy for the art. With the news that I was going to become a mother something happened. I changed somehow and keep on surprising myself.
With my future motherhood the wish to be more handy and crafty has grown proportionally. It started with cooking – my baby needs real homemade nutritious food with a lot of vegetables and fruit on the menu. Then I made the necklace I published in an earlier post, How to make a baby nursing necklace. And now I have sewed my first baby rompers – amazing! And guess what?! I had fun and want to create more. It may not be the perfect rompers and I know there are others who would do a better job. But I am happy and it is a start which may lead anywhere. I think my love for our baby made me conquer this obstacles. The rompers are definitely made with love.
As you may have observed the pattern is laid on the wrong side of the fabric. Do not worry – I did not cut the fabric as seen in the photo. I just wanted to get a picture of how it would look. The pattern is from Stoff och Stil baby/newborn rompers (sparkdräkt) nr 80001.
