For a while at least. I knocked out a few clothes for the girls this morning, and I feel good about it. They are THRILLED that mommy is making them awesomely cute things, (even though my hems are not always perfectly straight...) but I must admit I can only do so much in one day. I am tired for now.
It must have something to do with all the ironing involved.
Here is the tutorial for the shirts, here is the tutorial for the headbands, and here is the tutorial for the skirt. So easy!!

Anyone have links to cool things to make for boys? I have nephews too and don't want to leave them out. Sewing is way more fun than I realized. I just wish I'd been interested when my Nan was alive. She was a phenomenal seamstress (made my prom dress junior year!) and I could have learned a lot. I'd be super good at it now, and would have wonderful memories of spending time together.
But alas, my tomboy-ness made me uninterested. That, and the ironing and patterns...
Don't we all have things we wished we'd have done? At least I'm getting to it now. And I can teach my girlies so they can make things for themselves. Sleeping Beauty's birthday is one week away, and she's asked for a sewing kit. I have no idea what she means by that, but maybe I'll buy her a little embroidery kit or something.
Start 'em young I say...and enjoy the time I have to teach them!
