Impulsive Crafting

This is my latest impulse purchase. I know, I know, most people buy gum. I, apparently, buy industrial snap presses. So what was I to do with this beohemoeth once it found it's way into the studio? Why, put in inseam snaps on baby clothes, of course. (This was my rationale for buying it. I was going to save all this money making all of John Harper's clothes. Right.)

And so their very first matching set was born. I love the vintage feel of this ticking, and I am hoping to find some off-white linen (or better, yet, a pre-made, inexpensive shirt) for Grady to wear with these pants. They are not quite finished-- still searching for the perfect buttons, and that little front panel on John Harper's suit needs some embroidery, but we are almost ready to sally forth in style!

Those are SO cute, Melissa! I can't wait to see pictures of the boys wearing them. :) I agree, the snap press is very cool! said...

Wow, I think it's awesome! What a fun piece of equipment and the outfits are gorgeous!
