Every 6 months, we have a flurry of trips to the dentist. Our dental office is great, and they will book the kids in 2s or 3s, but it's still a few trips before we get everybody in. This was kind of tedious, until Hobby Lobby opened up almost next door. The fabrics pictured above are treasures I found while Brianna, Jack, and Hannah were getting their teeth cleaned.
I wanted to share the virtues of batch sewing, so I folded them all in-facing and stacked them up to cut.
My rotary cutter needs a new blade, so it was more like I perforated the outline and then went back and cut them with the good scissors.
A tantalizing array of prints
All cut out
Serging them all up in a chain
First pair done!
Lukey isn't crazy about being a model.
But I get a couple of okay shots.
Plus lots of this
And a bit of this.
As you can see, Luke is delighted with the second pair, as well.
I like the geometric print on the inside. It reminds me of honeycomb.
And the bee print totally reminds me of Burt's Bees.
Pair 3 is woodland animals on one side, and flaming orange brightness on the other.
I think he needs a brown long sleeved shirt to tone the ensemble down a little.
Josiah's fashion statement has to do with the 20* difference between his corner bedroom downstairs, and the bedrooms upstairs.
And the final pair. "Luke! Hey, Luke!"
There we go.
So much for "batch sewing." It took me almost 3 weeks to make these four pairs of pants. I used to be so much faster.
Thanks for clicking for us!
