Pj's designed by my "little"

my little 4yr old was shopping with me in the fabric shop and saw pink silky fabric with large white dots similar to what is on Minnie Mouses dress and asked if she could have some "pink minnie jammies"? how can you resist that? When we got home she proceeded to tell me how the jammies should fit, where to cut, hot short for the shorts, and oh, don't forget the princess sleeves mom!

I believe that smile says it all!

alot of my projects are born from necessity...... to not have to go to the store for a gift

handmade gifts ARE better....right?

a personal touch is always nice!

this project came from a inspirational book that I borrowed from my sewing buddy

free lounge pants

Browsing the Internet one day for free patterns, and found this. t-shirt surgery
What is better than a free pattern? Upcycling an old item into something new, one of my favorite things.
So it took 30 minutes....seriously. try it! We used a micro-fiber t-shirt and an old tank top for the raistband. This is an XL women's shirt for my 11 year old daughter.
Now we are looking around to find more t-shirts to cut up.
