Sewing for Summer

Do you ever wonder which pattern the winner of the Free Giveaway picks out? Chel, picked out pattern #123! With summer creeping closer day by day, what a great time to start making a playsuit.

Made from blue fabric with brightly colored sand pails. This playsuit was featured in Sew Beautiful Magazine several years ago. This was the first picture smocking that I had ever tried to design myself! The designing was the easy part.....writing the directions was a whole different story.

This is the link that Sew Beautiful has provided for the FREE smocking plate!

For a girl version, I decided on three cute summery satin stitch ice cream cones. The embroidery design is included in the pattern and is easily stitched using DMC floss. I think they look good enough to eat!

If you prefer a smocking pattern Little Memories "Mice Cream Cones" would be an adorable insert in this playsuit.

OH, I have this pattern, I got it because I wanted to learn to picture smock. Well, my mind cant seem to grasp smocking. I still can use the pattern as it has a non smocked panel. I thinks this is a darling pattern for a swimsuit too.
