Quick Makeover for a Child’s Jumper

Sewing:



(Sorry about the orientation of this photo! Blogger has decided yet again how my photos should appear!) You get the idea though!

This weekend we were very excited to have a 5th birthday party of one of Poppy’s lovely little friends. There are so many beautiful “little girl” things around to purchase, but I wanted to give her something useful and practical. I also didn’t have much time this week so it had to be quick!

So I purchased two size 5 sloppy joe jumpers from Target, and gave them an easy makeover by sewing on some “dots” of pretty material.


This project was very, very simple. Firstly I cut out two round shapes from my selected materials and gave them a quick iron.


Then I ironed down a little seam. 


I pinned the material dots onto the jumpers in the position that I wanted them. 


And then it was a quick matter of sewing around them! It doesn't even matter if your sewing isn’t perfect – the messy look just adds to the appearance of the jumpers.


The only problem was that the little girl I gave them to said “no, they’re too big”. !! She’ll love them though I’m sure!

Happy sewing!
