Last year for my birthday my Mom bought me a sewing machine - with instructions. I say that b/c I have a sewing machine and have for a long time. It is really nice, all metal parts but it has no instructions and it was a bit intimidating. So Mom got me a real simple machine and it has an instruction book. I've gotten a little more brave over then last couple of months doing random little projects. This week I combined my new found sewing talent with my cool Cricut to make the girls some Halloween pajamas for their school parties today.
The sewing the pajama pants was actually easy! I had fun with it and made a few mistakes but hey, that's how you learn. :) I got the shirts at Hobby Lobby and Ava's was way too big so I played with it to make it a little more fitted. Don't look too close because it has far from perfect, but for four hours at school it should do just fine! I was pretty proud that I reattached the sleeves and they are pretty close to being symmetrical! Ha!
I found out my Cricut could cut fabric, so I got it out to cut the letters out for their shirts. I did take some short cuts, b/c I should have hemmed Ava's shirt and gone over the letters with the sewing machine but such is life. I don't think my 4 and 2 year old minded too much! :) The outfits are pretty cute, but I must admit the little models sure make them super cute!
