I began sewing again when we decided to live basic. A little over a year ago. Growing up my mom made us clothes on occassion and taught us young! We'd make clothes for our dolls or barbies, hair accessories little stuff. We had a blast! But like most things you love as a child you eventually move on and stop doing. But I always knew I would start up again when I had a little girl.
I just love shopping for material. It's your chance to get creative and a little daring!! Having a daughter just brings this outta me. She's my little doll and she just loves playing in her new clothes!
I went ahead and let the boys pick out their own material. I want to do a sew class with them just to teach them the basics. Measuring each other, reading a pattern etc. Last year we did pillows and man did they have fun!
Here's what the boys picked out:
Anthony chose this because we're taking the boat out for Cinco de Mayo and he loves fishing with his Dad. So these will become his fishing shorts he says! He wants to make a matching fishing hat with it too..... They have way more confidence in me than they should I don't even know where to begin a fishing hat??? We shall search and find out I guess....
This is Cody's choice......Why??? Hmmm good question I think he was just in a hurry to get outta there.. and he loves dogs.
This is Wyatts..... Need I say more, every little toddler boy loves McQueen. We watch NASCAR and he patiently waits for Speed to come out.
And finally Caties I chose it because its soo dang cute!
These are what I've done so far.....
Isn't she sooo cute! Look at her face in that first one. LOL a model she is not! She hates standing still for pictures.. Mommas sorry baby!
