So, the Markham Fair was last week…it was really fun to go there and see our artwork on display. The kids were so excited to find each of their pieces. we even won a few ribbons! My Christmas bag I posted won first place! I think I won $5.00! (we enter not for the financial reward, but for bragging rights) Anyways, one of the categories was to sew an article of clothing out of polar fleece. So, I decided I wanted to make Sam a polar fleece dress….with a little extra.
I have to say that (I have said this many times before) I am a lazy sewer. I couldn’t be bothered seeing if I could find a pattern of a girls dress, so I just found a dress that fits Sam pretty well. I spread out the polar fleece on the floor, and pinned the dress down, making sure it was pretty flat.
Now, I could have used some chalk, or a fabric pencil to trace around it, but once again, due to my sheer laziness, i grabbed a pair of scissors and started cutting. I cut around the perimeter of the dress leaving about 3/4 of an inch around. I cut around only half of the dress…
Then, the trick to sewing polar fleece is not sewing perfetly, but arefully trimming around your stitches
And…the finished dress!
