Quick Change Trousers
Get ready for way too many pictures of the same item :) She was just being so cute I couldn't not post them.
Anyway, I've been eying this pattern for pajama pants for so long. It's from Anna Maria Horner's book "Handmade Beginnings". I finally found the book at our library today, and thankfully the pattern was there and in perfect shape. These were easy for me, but maybe a little confusing for someone who has just started sewing. Took about 1.5 hours. I love that they are modern looking and reversible!!!! Best of all, Demi is in love with them.
There are a little big, but that's ok, she will grow. I have them double cuffed here.
Can't decide which side I like more! There are all prints from Denyse Schmidt's line at Joann Fabrics.
I've also decided on a design for her big girl quilt. I'm doing a maverick star using Joel Dewberry's Modern Meadow. It's going to make a twin size, so I have a while to get these 48 squares done.
Ok, last thing! My husband brought home a pallet for my crafting pleasure. He took all of the slats off, but we're left with this frame that I think would make a nice shelf once sanded and stained. He thinks I'm off my rocker.....do you agree?
I've seen them look really cool on Pinterest!
