Sewing, Homeschooling and Craziness


I have just made c2 some cute shorts! I am so excited!! So far it’s been PJs, PJs and more PJs… Well, there was ONE other pair of shorts… But you see what I mean! LOL

Here they are!

There’s not really pink on them…. Something weird happened over at PicMonkey… LOL

And here is c1’s pillowcase dress! My gosh those things are quick and easy! A 50 cents pillowcase and 30 mins and she has a new dress! Can’t beat that! LOL

I was trying different things out at PicMonkey…. Not sure I like the way look when they are that big… LOL They looked much better when they were smaller. Β I’ll take some better pics in the natural light tomorrow.

If you are new to sewing go the Goodwill and grab some pillowcases! Pillowcase shorts and dresses are VERY simple and easy to make. The shorts are made just like the pants in my pajama tutorial. Β Just be careful when you are dealing with vintage linens. They can be very delicate.
