More Sewing!

Here are some pics of my latest sewing project! Mary Kate loves her new reversible pinafore and ruffle bloomers! :o) Please excuse the runny nose you may see in these pictures - poor little baby is sick!

I love to read blogs....whether they're written by one of my best friends or a total stranger, I just think blogs are great. Real people, real thoughts....saying things that pop into their heads...things that they may not say out loud to someone in person.

I was thinking today about how much I enjoy reading blogs, but rarely ever leave a comment on them. Why is that? It's like when you think someones shirt is really cute, but you just think it in your head instead of telling them, "I love your shirt!" Leaving someone a comment takes like 2 seconds and it makes people feel I'm gonna make an effort to leave more comments.

So if you notice that I'm suddenly commenting on your blog out of nowhere - now you know why :o)

Sweet dress...or shirt!

Here is my latest sewing project!

It was intended to be a dress for Mary Kate:

But it works as a shirt for Hannah too:

I really loved making this, and I got to learn a few new sewing skills in the process! I love the way it fits both girls - and they both seem so comfy in it! Because of the elastic and style of this dress/shirt, I think they'll be able to wear it for years before it gets too small!

Sew Fun!

I've been wanting to learn to sew for a while now. Thanks to my wonderful parents and in-laws, I got a sewing machine for Christmas and my wish is coming true! Below are some pics of my first creation! Hannah picked out the fabric, and I had so much fun making it! I love that it is reversible and can be worn all year long - by itself when it's warm and over a shirt when it's cold!
