I recently purchased this guy (using some credit card rewards points).
I seriously cannot even sew a basic button on by hand (I can never remember how to tie that knot that keeps everything from unraveling!), but I decided I wanted to try to teach myself.
Thanks to Pinterest and good ol’ Google, I found a couple tutorials and just started playing around. I cut up some old t-shirts first, so as not to waste fabric, and then headed to Hobby Lobby for supplies. I first made some “baby-legs” for Hadley out of a pair of knee-high socks.
Easy-peasy, so I decided to try something a little harder. I went with a skirt first, as it looked pretty simple. Much to my surprise, it was!
After two successes, I got a little over-confident and tried to make some ruffle pants… like these (from Little Lizard King)…
… let’s just say I’m not quite there yet. Good thing the fabric was on sale. I’m determined, though – just need to find a good tutorial/pattern!
