rain rain go away come again another day! It has been raining every day for weeks here! My little boys are bouncing off the walls.
I have been bitten by the sewing bug.(again) I started sewing girls clothes when my 10 y/o was 2. So I was making size 2, 4 and 6 at the time. But I haven't sewn anything (other than layouts ;)) for 6 years. But with the addition of another baby girl I have been wanting to get back into it. So I pull out the awesome patterns from Portabellopixie. I start with the ruffle pants. Because I figure 3 pattern pieces, I can't go wrong. and they didn't. They were quick and easy. 2 hours tops. I try them on Ellie. and well. She has thunder thighs. So the 12- 18months did not even come close to fitting. So luckily I had enough fabric to make the next size up. She can't get chubbier between now and her birthday but they fit :) So the other pair? I make a headband to match and will pick up a dress and send the set off to my cousin. Her children are little beanpoles :) Her 18 month old weighs 5 pounds LESS than my 10 month old :)The fabric I am using? Basic Grey christmas! It is so gorgeous! I will show pictures when I am done with the top. I plan on cutting the fabric today and sewing tomorrow.
Speaking of fabric be sure to check out Sandi Henderson's new line and the gorgeous line from Patty Young. I see lots more sewing in my future.
