Saturday ‘citement!!!

Man did we need it! It was a L-O-N-G night. Actually it has been a long week. First week of no preschool and PZ gets sick! We’ve gotten out of the house just once this week. Now Q is sick and PZ is still coughing. My machine was “broken” last week and I didn’t get a chance to try it out until Tuesday, which was my one kind of productive day this week.

I made these out of a 2 fat quarters I got from bundles at Bolt. I actually had them already sewn together, they just needed hemming and the waistband and tag put in. (PZ complains if I don’t put a little ribbon in the back where the tag should be. Fair enough. She still has trouble figuring out which way to put on her pants, so the tag is a big help!)

Summer Wardrobe Fresh From the Garden

While PZ and hubby did a bit of gardening, and I do mean just a bit since it was raining for most of the week, I managed to get in some sewing. I’m still building on the girls spring/summer wardrobes and was inspired to do some light cotton pants after getting a great deal on retro striped fabric from Knittin’ Kitten (it looks like what they make men’s dress shirts out of).
