Tiny Swimmer

I have now, officially, attempted the smallest sewing project I have ever done.  Barbie’s “little sister” (who is her daughter, to my daughter) wanted to go swimming in Barbie’s new pool.  And who can blame her, really?  It’s got a diving board and a basketball hoop…but I digress.  Anyway, she needed a suit.  I had a chunk of lycra sitting around, so I cut out a simple itty bitty suit for the little girl.  The hardest part was sewing the arm straps together—my machine just wanted to munch on the lycra rather than stitch it.

Here she is; styling and posing is courtesy of my daughter:


And then her friend needed one too. IMG_0163

I was smart enough this time to cut it on a fold so I didn’t have to stich the arms, just the sides and bottom.

Glad that’s over!
