I have been doing some sewing projects for the kiddos lately, which is a restful thing. I don’t get very long to sew with a 7 week old, but it still makes me happy.
I made a dress for Hannie and some pants to match for Isaac. I hope to get a tie made for Aaron before Sunday but we’ll see how it goes. I didn’t have a pants’ pattern that was small enough for Isaac’s pants (and since I am cheap and didn’t want to buy one) I traced a size 0-3 month pair I had and just went with it. I think for next time I would make the bottoms a little bigger. The original pants tapered in a bit, but these did a little more than I would have liked. I am wanting to sew a few more pair for Fall, so I’ll show my second attempt in the next couple of days. I do like the pants on, and I am all about soft and comfy baby clothes. I know some people like jeans on babies, but I prefer something super soft and comfy. I also might applique something on the shirt. A sailboat? Rocket? I don’t know yet.
And as for the appearance goal, I am failing too. Late last night I had to drop something off at a neighbor’s house and as I was walking up to her house, I caught a glimpse of myself in a car window. Disheveled hair in a ponytail, and bread dough all over the front of my shirt that I didn’t even know was there. Good grief. And it was only Monday. Project appearance…..fail.
Hopefully the other Liz is doing better.
