A lot of sewing!

I haven't been feeling well this past week. As a result, I haven't spent a ton of time on the computer. Instead,I got a ton of sewing done!

I made a bunch of things for my Etsy store, and I made Nate a jon jon. Lino thinks that jon jons are completely ridiculous, but this is the last summer I can put them on Nate (I think next year he will be too big)

When I finished it yesterday, Nate wouldn't try it on. He ran away yelling, "I won't do it" when I asked him to wear it. Today he isn't feeling well, fever and congested. He asked to wear it when I was taking pictures of it! (must be the tylenol talking!)

I am thinking a white t-shirt underneath will look cute.

Maggie and Cassie said they wanted to take pictures, too. That is, until they stood there. This is the best one of all three. Maggie doesn't want her picture taken, and Cassie was watching tv.

Next on my personal sewing to do list is to cut the pattern for dresses for Maggie and Cassie. I don't love this step. I keep my patterns intact so I can use different sizes. Instead, I trace the patterns onto tissue or pattern paper and cut those. It takes a bit longer, but it means I can use the pattern more often.

(Nate just asked to get out of his outfit, lol. At least I know it fits!)

I still have things to make for etsy, but I need to get to the fabric store. That will probably happen later this week, since Nate isn't feeling well today.

Those are cute! Isn't it funny how kids get all huffy when the camera comes out?

Very cute!!! I love it!

I'm determined this week to finish the kids' letter tees I've made. I've done the letters, ironed them on...I just have to do the satin stitch!!!
