I’m beginning to see a trend to what I’m working on…  It’s fall!  I love fall in Michigan, though today is a bit dreary.  All the better to stay inside and create cute things and post about them!   

My candy corn cutie!

 I’ve been making these pinafore tops all summer.  With the onset of fall and all things associated, I thought the shape of the top was a bit triangular and would be really cute done as a candy corn.  I measured the length of the front of my pattern and divided by three, added an extra 1/2″ for seam allowance, and cut and sewed them together like piecing a quilt.  Then I proceeded as usual to make the pinafore top, using a cute candy corn print for the reverse side.    

Before I sewed the front to the back, I added a blanket or Parisian stitch to the yellow and orange sections to make it look applique’d, and sewed on one of my new Jennuine Design labels, since I think this might be a sample for the Etsy shop I’m planning to open soon.

Pardon the rumpled appearance of the finished product.  My daughter had been wearing it all morning until I borrowed it during her nap to snap some quick photos.  Plus she’s teething, so therefore a drooling maniac and the top is a bit damp.   

Finished product

Super cute and super quick!
