Welcome to Week 31 of the One Yard Wonders Sew Along!

Week 31 – Project 68
All-Ages Classic Jumper
– designed by Amanda Sasikirana page 191

Cindy selected Flower Sugar Wildflowers Red and Michael Miller Fabrics Mini Mikes Tiny Gingham Pink.

Materials Needed:

1 yard of 44/45 ” fabric – not suitable for unidirectional prints

1/2 yard of 1″elastic

1/4 yard lightweight fusible interfacing

two 1″ buttons

Cindy’s Tips and Thoughts

  • Cindy made the All Ages Classic Jumper in the 12 month size.
  • Part 3: Cindy pressed the short ends as the directions said then she made a tube instead of pressing in the long ends & sewing.  For her this method was faster and made a clean edge.
  • Part 4: Cindy cut her interfacing to only cover half of the top front band.  She was concerned the double layer would be too stiff.
  • Part 10: As a beginner, Cindy found the wording on the buttonholes a bit confusing. She didn’t understand what a “vertical” buttonhole meant. By learning how her machine makes buttonholes she was able to figure out what to do to match the picture on page 191.
  • The directions say to make the buttonholes “1 inch from the end of each strap”. The picture shows the buttonholes on the front top band. Cindy matched the picture.
  • Buttons were then sewn on the straps. Cindy thought this would be an easy way to adjust length to fit her granddaughter.
  • She made covered buttons with some fussy cut flowers.
  • This jumper will be super cute on Cindy’s granddaughter!

Week 31 – Project 69
Strapless Bandeau Shorty Jumper
– designed by Stephanie Sterling page 194

Tracy chose Cary Phillips Floral Folio Large Toss Cream and Floral Folio Tonal Dark Orange.

Materials Needed:

Pattern on sheet #3

1 yard of fabric (for 2T – 4T: 44/45″ for 5T: 54/60″)

2 decorative buttons

two 1″ D – rings

1/2 yard of 1/4″ elastic

Tracy’s Tips and Thoughts

  • Tracy (and the Pink Chalk Team) was surprised to find this pattern was a romper not a dress. The darling picture in the book is a side view not showing the shorts.
  • The pattern was simple and easy to follow.
  • Tracy made her own buttons using the Pink Chalk Fabrics covered button kit.
  • Two additions were suggested. Belt loops to keep the belt in position and straps to secure the romper on an active child.

Ready for a sunny day!
