I love sewing stuff for children. These dungarees were for my god childs 3rd birthday. I used some of my old jeans, that were a little too tight around my belly and some old flower cotton material that i got from my sister in law (the material must be original from the 70s, I think she had it from her grandmother :-)

Ich liebe es Sachen für Kinder zu nähen. Diese Latzhose war für den dritten Geburtstag von meinem Patenkind. Ich habe dafür eine alte Jeans von mir verwendet, die mir um den Bauch um etwas zu eng waren und sonst nur in die Altkleidertonne gewandert wären. Kombiniert habe ich das ganze mit einem Baumwoll Blumenstoff den ich vor einer Weile von meiner Schwägerin bekommen habe (ich glaube es ist noch original 70er Jahre und sie hatte es von ihrer Großmutter :-)

I had some more detailed pictures of the whole sewing process, but I accidently deleted them. So here is just one picture of the finished pants.

Ich hatte eigentlich einige Detailphotos vom Entstehungsprozess, die ich aber aus Versehen gelöscht habe. Hier also nur ein Bild der fertigen Hose.

A friend of mine had the plan to make a bib using some of her old towels. I liked the idea very much and I volunteered to do them for her, since she didn’t find the time. She had a bib that I used to take down a pattern.

I actually ended up using old and new materials. The main cloth is used from an old towel. The decorational parts are bought new.

I used pins to attach the surrounding material to the towel cloth. The theme of the bib is cherries, so I cut out two circles of the red new towel material and ironed on some of the double sided glueing ‚paper.‘

After ironing it on to the bib I used a criss cross stitch to stitch the binding around the bib and to go around the circle and stitch a cherry stem. At the end I added some velcro.

And this is how the result looks like:
