A friend asked me to sew costumes for a play her girls are in.
The only 8 year old body in my house is a BOY, so he was not delighted to model for me, lol.
Not pictured are a brown skirt and another apron.
Brianna recently finished a quilt. She hasn't decided yet if it's going to be for Katie or for Project Linus. I used to make blankets for them every year, but I just don't sew as much any more.
Hannah had pajama day at school recently.
Like any good Sewing Mama, I whipped these up the night before. Felt strange to get her up and tell her to change from pajamas... into pajamas.
Hannah has probably a dozen of these little peasant tops I've made her in size 4, some, from before we even got her. This is a size 2, for Katie. I have a feeling it will be the first of many, too.
I order my kids' jeans online from Old Navy. I had a $5 "reward" to spend recently and found these cute little ruffle butt leggings for $3, so they were essentially free when I was ordering other stuff. Once they arrived, I took them into my sewing room to find a print with that shade of turquoise in it. I happened across this print that my friend Suzanne had given to Annaliese years ago. It was perfect.
Bloomers I bought on clearance, and another peasant top. I may may a little white eyelet sundress to go with these bloomers, too. The top seems a little bright to me.
And yes, another peasant top. I'm more about production than variety, I guess.
When I saw this Ruffle Butt diaper cover on Zulily in China flag colors, I had to have it. Unfortunately, Katie had nothing to wear with it. I kept thinking I'd find some cute little t-shirt to go with it, but since that hasn't happened, I pulled out some old striped PRR fabric and made this instead.
I was recently searching the sewing room for some PUL for a friend. I didn't end up finding any, but I did find some Valentine knit that inspired me for Hannah, and something cute for Katie, so hopefully I'll have a chance to get those things cut out soon. It feels good to be sewing again after such a long break. I used to make the vast majority of the kids' clothes, and I do love seeing things I made in the laundry.
