I am participating this time around and so far I have spent a few hours sewing today. I made some cute hair clips for Halloween for the girls and some sleep pants made out of flannel so they can be nice and warm all winter long. Now I just really hope they fit when they try them on! Pants are hard for me to make fit properly and of course I decided to make them after they went to sleep tonight! Here are photos of the items I worked on today.
These cute ghosts I found on a blog page somewhere and thought they looked cute so I made my own version for the girls to wear to school for the month of October. I changed the shape of the mouth and just used different ribbon and larger eyes from the original. Because I am not selling these I don’t find it as I am taking anyone else’s product idea from them.
Next are the sleep pants. I just used some pants that fit the girls to make patterns so hopefully they will fit just fine when they try them on in the morning.
Tomorrow I am hoping to get at least one shirt made for one of the girls. I am really hoping to get two done so they can each have one but we shall see. I will be using a tutorial for a reglan tee from Jess at Craftiness Is Not Optional. I already picked out the fabrics. 🙂
Time for bed..I need to get up in a few hours to get the kids to school. See ya tomorrow!
UPDATE: Of course..they don’t fit over their hips. Not even thinking I used knit pants to use as a template..they stretch. The flannel doesn’t stretch so I can’t get them up over their hips and butts. DUH moment for me. I knew better but didn’t think that far ahead! I may try to cut out the top of the pants and sew in a new section to see if that works..lol.
