I Heart My Brother...

...sewing machine!

"she's a maniac, maniac with a thimble!
and she's sewing like she never did before!"

Okay, so I'm learning.
You've gotta start somewhere, right????

Since the grand purchase, I've made...
a pillow case for Gage
a pillow for Gage
two pairs of shorts for Gage
a skirt for me
a dress for me

Both pairs of shorts suck. The good news: he is still in LOVE with the Tigger shorts. The bad news: the other pair is soooooooooo sucky, that Hubby has refused to let Gage wear them in public, and he says that the fabric is girly any way....


To note: he's laying down in the above picture, but if he were standing, you'd see how low waisted those shorts are. And nevermind the fact that I used white thread. If you look carefully, you'll see that Tigger is right-side-up on one leg, and upside down on the other. Oh well. They can be jammie shorts.

But whatever...he LOVES them, and requested that I take a picture of him in his Tigger shorts.


The other shorts... Well...they're hideous for a 2 year old little boy.

The fabric has green leaves and little bees on it. I thought it was gender neutral...apparently I was wrong.

But, made myself a blue & white little skirt. It's so comfy, and easy-breezy...

And the two pillowcases I made for Gage as he munches on his apples...And yes, let's all keep in mind----he picked those fabrics. Not me.


:)
Anyway....even if all my creations from today are not perfect....it was fun! And, I'm only going to get better, right???????????

Are you winging these or following a pattern????

You're doing great - I'm impressed.
And I noted that Gage still has a rug for his car "set-ups" and a "treat bowl." Brings back memories...
