So, I have been inspired by Pinterest and I thought it would be fun to show you what I saw and then what I made. I have decided that Pinterest is just a time sucking covet trap unless one uses it as a tool, so I'm trying to be a better steward. That said.. .
My friend, Michelle, came up with the idea of the "sewing group" making these shirts. They are so adorable and I have to admit this is the earliest I have had a tshirt prepared for a holiday. The Pinterest link:
Michelle gave me the pattern for a pair of pants she was going to make her little girl and I thought I would take that on as well. So. . . (or sew. . .)
Then there was this A.D.O.R.A.B.L.E spider shirt:
and KB has this cute tulle skirt so I had to try and this is what I came up with:
The spider was a bit tedious and so I was NOT going to make one for Little (or Bubba, for that matter). I did a little search on Pinterest and saw this:
I just realized I don't have a photo of those, but they were quick and easy to make and now the girls have matching shirts. Bubba's going to get a monster instead. You'll see photos eventually, I am sure.
Then there's the gift I made today and I'm excited. I can't remember how long ago it was that someone (my mom or another friend) gave me an clipping from Southern Living which showed a half apron made out of a dish towel and ruffles. Oooh, after a quick Google search it seems it was July 2010 that it was given to me and here's the photo:
Recently I was on Pinterest and came across a tutorial that spelled it all out for me and I decided to make one for my sister-in-law - she loves to cook. Pinterest link:
Brooke's apron (which I think will look better with real hips behind it - even small hips like Brooke's - and maybe I'll hem the towel up a few inches):
So, there we go. Now I have to move on to the next thing. Honey is headed to Vegas next week for a three day conference and the day after he returns I am headed south to see my BROTHER!!! and then spend the weekend in Atlanta with my sister and Mom. Oh, sorry - SISTER AND MOM!!!!!
I'll check in again real soon. There are soccer photos I must share and Bubba's first MLB game. Till then,
"Good night, sleep tight and may your dreams come true.
Here's a wish and a prayer that every dream comes true.
And now till we meet again, adios, au revoir, Auf Wiedersehen. Good Night!"
