I can sew! I know, it's shocking, considering my renowned inability to reliably operate my automatic monogramming machine.
My mother-in-law gave me a sewing machine for my birthday and I've been having SEW MUCH FUN (sorry, couldn't resist the pun). I like it even more than I thought~~
The very first thing I made was John Deere pajama pants and an applique shirt for Barrett:
I haven't made matching shorts for these shirts yet. Hopefully soon.
Let's be honest, I've dreaded the transition to "big boy clothes" (ie, jeans, collared shirts, separates, etc) since the day he was born, and I still dress him in smocked clothes and bubbles when Kristopher isn't looking. But, I'm satisfied that the matching applique/shorts combos are "big boy" but still cute. Everyone wins, right??
Now I want to make something for baby Charlotte! Although I'm a little intimidated by the difficulty factor of ruffles, and puffed sleeves, and all the pretty girly-type things. We'll see how it goes...
