Spring Sewing: Tiny Cardi Edition

I have a huge pile of clothes I’ve been meaning to miniaturize for a while. And now that Spring has sprung Ginger is in need of some new duds. I keep spending any extra money on my eyelashes or at Joanns…oops, so I seriously had to bust out the machine.

Maybe they’ll give you some ideas! If you have any questions please shoot them my way! I’ll do a tutorial for the two-pattern-piece shirt (the navy one) but the cardigans are just a mixture of me chopping up all the parts and resizing.


I got a little snippy with the yellow and navy shirts. They will have to go to my niece Jojo. Ginger’s belly has seriously taken on a form of its own! It’s so cute but she needs like 5 extra inches in length to keep it contained.

Have you been up to any fun spring sewing?! Leave me a link! I’d love to check it out!

Keep it crafty, keep it sassy,

    AH! These are SOOOO cute! I am seriously going to TRY and attempt making one for Claire. She may show up at your doorstep looking homeless from this attempt. Just take her in and fix her up if you don't mind. 🙂
