Sew and Tell Friday...

Two in a row it is a miracle!

Los of sewing at the moment.. big order to finish and get in the mail.  But did quickly whip these items up.


I made Gwen a pillow case dress, which looks adorable I think... however....
She and Gabby decided she looked like a hobo who could not afford clothes, how rude are they!
This was one of my MIL's pillow cases, so thought that would make it fun too.  NOPE
Looks like I need to make the arm holes bigger and make it a top for me! Stay tuned for that:)


Here is an old dress shirt of Chad's that he no longer wears because the cut is weird or the collar is weird or  who knows why, he is uber picky when it comes to dress shirts.




Voila~  
We have another pair of PJ bottoms for Graham.  They are perfect for summer, nice and light weight. I made sure to choose a washable dress shirt that was not super stiff.
Not the best photo... sometimes I have to take what I can get!

It IS an adorable dress. However, kids are independent. ;-)

Cool jammie bottoms! Especially cool that they came from fabric you didn't have to buy.
