I should have posted this a while ago, but am just getting to it now. End of January, I had little Hannah’s third birthday to make something for. I wanted to try my hand at a simple sewing project, my first in two years, and I remembered that one of Hannah’s favorite books was Cowboy Small by Lois Lenski. I found Jackie Clark’s Britches and Bloomers pattern and some cute cowgirl fabric from Fabric Depot. Not only were these the first pants I’d ever made, it was also my first experience making ruffles. It was actually pretty easy! My favorite part of the project though, was the pockets. I am quickly realizing just how important using an iron is to press as you go.
I'm Emily Flippin Maruna, mama to two beautiful little girls, PZ and Q and wife to Franz (Hubs). Check out the About page if you want to know more about me and just what this Handmade Experiment is all about.
