Is it Monday already?

April 20, 2010

What’s my excuse for missing Monday this week? A little thing called Patriots’ Day. Now there’s something I like about living in Massachusetts! Random holidays are always a check in the “pro” column.

Last week:

I did manage to make a little dress for Gracie. It’s a test run for a dress that will match her cousin at my sister-in-law’s wedding. I need to add buttons and buttonholes today.

This week:

I’m going to make a few of these fabric high chairs for gifts, some shoes to match the dress I finished last week (of course, you saw that one coming six miles away), and I’d like to start my next pair of jeans. We’ll see!

Now for real content: I had thought that Tom’s trench was the sewing highlight of the year. I was wrong. I’ve started making sleepers for Gracie out of old T-shirts, and have been delighted to find it to be easy and have great results. She’s getting so big, I need to make up another batch. No serger needed!

    I love the idea of the t-shirt sleepers! Did you make up the pattern?

    You are a sewing genius. Those sleepers are so cute, and such a great idea for recycling favorite t-shirts.

    I think I remember seeing that sleeper last week, but I didn’t realize it was made out of an old t-shirt. Very cool!

    So cute! Your sewing skills are really impressive. I need to do some work this summer to catch up with you.
