Back before the holidays, I interrupted Project Sewing 101, my journey to complete all of the projects in the book 1-2-3 Sew, in order to focus my attention on my etsy shop & craft show for the season. Now, I'm back in action, making it a priority to knock out the last 7 projects in the book in the next few weeks.
I left off in the "Reversible For Kids" chapter, where I completed a cape, a little girl's skirt, and went out of the book to create little man's suit vests. The final project in this chapter is the Mix it Up Smock, a smock for art on one side and for cooking on the other- what a great idea!
On the art side, I embroidered 2 paint brushes, and included a little pocket separated into slots to fit crayons, markers, pencils, or brushes.
The project also directed me to make and use double fold binding to finish off the neck area. I made single fold binding for my placemats project, but not since so there was a bit of a learning curve going on here! I think it turned out OK on the art side, but don't examine the cooking side too closely!
The cooking side also has appropriate embroidery, a two section pocket, and the whole thing is open on 3 sides with 2 velcro straps. I like this idea because it grows with your kid.
It feels great to finally finish this chapter! There are only 2 left to complete (just 6 projects): For Baby and Blockhead Animals. I'm trying to zoom through these projects, so most likely there will be a series of posts just highlighting these projects for a while until I finish up!
