LittleKiwisCloset – Beachcomber Pinny

I had the opportunity to test the Beachcomber Pinny for Lydia of LittleKiwisCloset. This little pinny pattern is ADORABLE!! And super quick. Remember what I said here about not being a quick sewist? I had this little pinny finished in less than two hours. And part of that two hours involved hand sewing on two buttons and putting girls to bed. At first look, it looks like it should take a lot longer. Not the case, unless you add bias tape or piping to it, obviously that would take longer. On Craftsy, Lydia offers a FREE tutorial for making piping and binding. I have it downloaded, but confess to not having looked at it yet. I just don’t know if I am ready to venture there yet.

Sorry about the awful indoor photos. I believe we woke up to a sprinkling of snow that morning, and I am in serious protest of snow in May! Awful pictures aside, isn’t that the cutest little pinny ever? That HUGE piece down the center front, that’s a POCKET!!! Danny put Elle’s cup in it, and she thought it was the greatest thing ever!

It’s an adorable pinny, and a super easy pattern. Lydia is running a sew along on her blog. It started May 9th, so I’m a little late to the game posting about it. The great thing is that you can go back and follow along whenever you want. If you feel you need some extra help, follow along with the sew along, which can be found here.

Also, be sure to head over to Facebook and give LittleKiwisCloset a like. You can also join the group, which is a great place to share you finished projects and ask for extra help.

I’m linking up, here.

Make It and Love It

About manningthemachine

I'm Laura. Mama to four, and wife to one awesome guy. I'm ever so slightly sarcastic. Just a little bit. I like to quote movies, but since our house is managed by little people, most of those quotes come from kiddie shows. At least my husband generally gets the references. It makes me feel less awkward. I took sewing lessons starting at the age of 8, through the Kids Can Sew program. I took lessons for four or five years. Then I became a snotty teen and decided sewing was lame. I've repented of my ways, and enjoy sewing for my little ones. And sometimes other people. And almost never for myself. Oh hey. My blog name. "Manning The Machine." I think it's probably only funny if you know me in real life. And even then, maybe it is only funny to me. My last name is Manning. This is a blog about my sewing. Manning The (Sewing) Machine. Do you get it? Do you? No. That's fine. I think it's funny even if you don't.
