Mini Tutorial - Baby Singlet Embellishment (Spring Has Sprung 2013)

Today I'm teaming up with a bunch of extremely talented blogging ladies to bring you fresh inspiration for spring with the Spring has Sprung 2013 Blog Hop!  

I thought I'd share with you a nice easy little project to jazz up those plain baby singlets with a hint of spring.

As you can imagine, with a brand new baby to cuddle here at Cass Can Sew HQ, my sewing time has become very limited, if not non-existent!  So this little project was perfectly do-able.  In fact, it took me no more than five minutes!  Even the most greenest of beginner sewing enthusiasts would have no trouble with this one.

What you'll need...

Baby Singlet
Lace Trim
Sewing Machine

How to do it...

  1. Take your singlet and measure the length of the front neckline.
  2. Add an extra 1/2 an inch to that measurement and cut your lace trim accordingly.
  3. Now it's time to sew it down to the neckline.  Starting from the shoulder seam, fold one edge of the trim under to hide the raw edge and then simply sew the trim into place along the neckline.
  4. Don't forget to tuck in the raw edge when you get to the opposite shoulder seam to finish off.
  5. Pop your cute new singlet on your baby and have an impromptu photo session!
Seriously... it is that easy!

Don't forget to stop by and see what everyone else is up to for the Spring has Sprung blog hop!
