He got the shirt....

My husband asked for me to attempt to make him a shirt....I did he loves it, wants more. He also asked me to make him some shorts
He got them....not exactly perfect he says but hey it's a start right? 
Next step I workon tweaking the pattern I started with and work on exerting him then perfect pair of short as he wants....
And I have a feeling as soon as I get the shorts perfect he will want pants done up lol at least they'll be easier since I'll already have the shirts pattern worked out
Love making him stuff just as much as I enjoy making the kids stuff! 💖

Birthday Girl!

Today is M's 6th birthday! I can't believe how fast the time has gone....seems like just yesterday we were setting up the crib and discussing names....and now 6 yrs later our little girl is growing up right infront of our eyes....

She awoke to a new princess dress! Fawn Lily pattern button yoke and Aline skirt (and I realized after done that Cinderella is standing on her head...but M doesn't mind! She still loves it!)

She got the toys with homemade "cloud dough" it was a huge hit! The tub it's in is plenty big for all kids to play in at once! They were playing together for a good 4hrs....
She also got the tunnel! Another huge hit! I had been wanting one of these for the kids to play in for quite some time....we found it at a thrift store! I can't wait to be able to set up the playroom again and include the tunnel!
She also got a package from gramma and Gigi! Barbie dresses, a notebook, and some clothes were inside! 

Still to come is cake and donuts! And supper is as birthday girl requests: hotdogs, chips, and fruit salad with cake, ice cream, and donuts as dessert!

The Past Few Months....

While I was more or less MIA in updating the blog...I was sewing a LOT! It's almost like the more I sew the more I want to sew...I just hate to cut into fabric but I love seeing my kids wearing something I've made for them...
Well...over the past months I've made pants for S, lil D, and J

S' pants
Leggings! These are part of her wardrobe of choice during the winter months
Then she hit a growth spurt! So I added ruffles to her shorter pants...she loved it!
Mickey! She has ordered another pair of these this yr...lol


Lil D's pants
Courdory pants
Cars! Oh how he loved these pants...we shall need to see if they still fit him this year...
Light weight denim
Boats and ships pajama pants
More Cars! Another huge hit with Lil D....
And then you got not just Cars, but Lightning McQueen! And in Minky! Oh boy am I glad this pair still fits him...
and camo!

Then there's J's pants...
Took the sleeves of a shirt to make this pair...
Shiny blue
Tiny baby modeling new pants...I can't believe how big he's gotten since this picture...

Plain Ol' White!

My husband LOVES wearing white tshirts over white tank tops...as in, that's all his drawer has in it pretty much as far as shirts go....well, when some of his shirts become too stained, he just throws them out (sometimes I get them before he does and they end up bleached and white again....) so he's always needed new shirts...
I never made an adult shirt before...heck the only adult sewing I'd done prior was nightgowns for my mom (how can one person need so many anywas? Lol) anyways...this is a white tshirt from the fishsticks Charlie Tee and Hoodie Adult sizes pattern! My husband loves it! Yay!
