Bend the Rules Sewing

Source: Craftzine

Last week I made the 'Swing Swing Smock' for a friend's new baby from Amy Karol's book. I was so well behaved that I even pre-washed my fabric *gasp*

I have never sewn binding on in one swoop (I usually sew one side on the machine then the other by hand), definitely never before using zig-zag, but this was quick and not too tricky. I didn't even need to use the seam ripper, which is usually my best friend when sewing. thanks Amy! I'll post a better photo after the gift has been recieved x


  1. My oh my - I've never thought to hand stitch binding... you are far better than I :)

  2. I've had my eye on that book for sometime... looks great!!!
    Well done with the binding :)
