Little Smock Shop

This summer I considered writing about my magnificent obsession - smocking. It truly was the perfect craft for me after the baby came. I could work on it from time to time and in short increments. It wound up being therapudic for me and something that allowed me to still create in the chaos of having two little ones so close together.

This summer - over July 4th, on vacation, in the summer heat - I began working on these inserts for the kid's Christmas outfits. I bought the fabric this fall and started putting them together in October. I finally finished them by the first of the month and they have been able to wear them several times since. I was so pleased with how they turned out and these pieces will be so special to pass onto them for their children in the future.

I don't know when we'll find the time, but I really want a lesson on smocking! What pattern did you use for your overalls / john-john?
