Callie picked out this Dora pirate adventure fabric when we went on vacation in March. Yes, I'm STILL working on that post. Anyways, I had the crazy idea to sew her a dress to wear to the school program last night. I decided this as I was going out the door to pick up the kids at 2:50. We got home at 3:20. I madly cut out the dress and sewed as FAST as I possibly could! I had to start teaching at 4:00 and didn't get finished 'til 5:30. Seth's program was at 7:00!!! As soon as my teaching day was finished, I raced back to the sewing machine/serger. I finished it, got myself and everyone ready AND cleaned up my sewing mess before we left at 6:30!! Callie was soooo happy with her pirate dress!
Last night, Callie came out in her Ooga Booga pj's. Samuel was like, "Mom, why don't I have Ooga Booga pj's?" "Uh....son....because you told me you didn't like the fabric." Anyways, I told him I'd make him a pair while he was at school. Here he is trying them on after school was out today. As you can tell, he LOVES them!! They're a little big, but we like our jammies loose and comfy around here!! :) This fabric is one of my favorite knit prints. I just think the little ooga booga monsters are adorable!!!!
Just some shots of the new technique I'm working on with my twin needle when finishing necklines. I do have a coverstitch machine that will do this, but decided to try in on my sewing machine. It worked great and I am in love with the results!! :)
