To clarify: this tunic is not for naptime, but rather it was made during naptime-- a charmed hour and a half that I had this afternoon when both of my sweeties were blissfully sleeping. I came across this tutorial this morning, and it claimed that it only took an hour or so to make a cute little peasant top for your toddler, so I thought, why not? I have tons of thrifted bedsheets laying there just tempting me to try new projects (I was tickled to find that a single pillow case yields almost the perfect amount of fabric for this toddler-sized top. And it saves you from having to do the hem if you just use the existing hem).
And it really would have taken an hour if I were not such a beginning sewer. Although, I am quite proud to announce that I did something that I have been dreading for months now: adjusting the tension. And I am so glad that I did it, because the machine works wonders now.
Now if I could just find an adult version of this shirt, I would be all set.
