Ok, for those of you that know me, you know I love to make things. I thought I would make M a few jon jons for spring. I have tried to sew before when T was first born, but I became frustrated and stopped. I do not like to admit defeat, therefore, I dusted off the sewing machine (8 years later) and tried again.
I have a new found respect for people who sew, or for that matter, for anyone who can follow a pattern. I have tried for 3 days to make a very simple (according to the pattern description) jon jon with lining. Nothing lined up and I must admit that I am now an expert at ripping out seams. I finally ditched the pattern for the jon jon and thought I would make M a pair of shorts. I did a little better, but still could not follow the pattern. I finally made my own pattern from a pair of shorts he already owned. And I thought this was suppose to be easy and only take a couple of hours!
I will not give up and I will let you know how it ends up. I may have to call in a professional to help me finish at least one jon jon. I have posted a couple of pictures to let you see how my THIRD attempted is coming. Hopefully, I will have the outfit completed before he outgrows it! I will also keep my fingers crossed when it is time to put in the washer and dryer! :)
