I did it! I sewed my first item of clothing. No, not for me - but for a friend of mine's new baby girl.
I made this cute kimono!
I used this tutorial:
Simple Kimono Wrap (version 2)
It was the first time I've ever done a binding like this and I have to say it wasn't that bad!
I have this cool little bias binding maker thingy that I never used - but now I have! It was really a lot easier than I thought. You just cut your fabric into strips twice as wide as the desired end result - pop the strip into the bias maker and iron it flat as it comes out! And you end up with perfect bias strips!
I think I may have to make some more!
