We love Vespa! A kids dungarees…

Kids Dungarees - Vespa Fabric

I love to go for rides on Vespa and I’m the happiest person in the world when Filippo and I go for a ride on his ’80 Vespa around Brianza or Lake Como! 🙂 So you can imagine that as soon as I saw this fabric on Supercut website, I madly fell in love with it.

I seized the opportunity to use it for the birth of a couple of friends’ child: welcome Carlo! 🙂

I used the La Casetta in Canadà’s pattern of a kids dungarees enclosed to La Mia Boutique magazine (July-August 2014). I didn’t make any variation but used only French seams in order to keep the raw edges cleaner and neater. I haven’t got the overlocking machine yet, but I would say that I like the French seam effect very much in any case!

Et voilà…here is my first sewn gift! What do you think about it?

Instead, what was your first sewn or handmade gift?

La stoffa è veramente simpatica! Sono sicura che il tuo regalo handmade verrà apprezzato tantissimo!
Per ora ho regalato solo oggetti fattibad uncinetto (collane, borse e amigurumi) ma per questo Natale ho già in mente qualche regalo da cucire 😉

Bravissima!! Spero di trovare anch’io il tempo per fare qualche regalino “cucito” questo Natale. Intanto mi sono ripromessa di fare qualche decorazione per l’albero…vediamo che ne esce fuori! 😉

Oh, I can see what you like about this pattern, it’s fab :). Congrats on your first sewn gift! I haven’t done that myself but it’s a lovely idea to give somebody not just an item but also a little of your time that you took to make it. I think when I feel my sewing is good enough, I might start making some very special presents :). Yours is just perfect!
