For my first trip on my sewing machine I made my 5 month old niece a kimono. I even made the binding tape (not bias tape) with my handy dandy binding tape maker. I had enough fabric and tape to make 3 overall two size 12-24m and one 3T.

First Kimono


Things that were hard:

  • Hemming tiny sleeves! Okay, maybe I should have pinned them but still
  • Zig-zag finishing was that hard but it is hard to sew along the edge in a neat fashion
  • Attaching the binding in the shoulder area. I had some issues. Funny enough the first was the easiest and it went downhill from there.
