Easy Pattern

Fabric Requirements:  You could use fat quarters to make this pattern.  It requires very little fabric. 

It is a one piece pattern with only 9 steps including snap directions.

Note about fabric to beginners:  Be careful about fabric selection not to get a fabric that is too high in pile, as the seams are tight and curved and you will not be able to clip the curves very well which will create bulk and a messy finish.

Fabric weight is important:  Try a thinner diaper cloth, a very thin terry cloth, absorbent fabrics made of 100% cotton, cotton flannels and even waffle or cotton velours or double brushed.

Hi! My name is Molly McGuire, and my number one passion is sewing. In fact, I've dedicated my entire life to it. When I was a little girl, I used to love watching my grandma work on her sewing machine. She could make anything. She made all the clothes for the entire family, and it was so amazing! Today, I continue my grandma's legacy by making clothes for our extended family and teaching proper sewing techniques to our students. I get a great deal of satisfaction from teaching others. Once again, thank you for visiting my blog and please feel free to reach out to me! I would love to hear from you! Enjoy! Molly
