Last minute Christmas sewing
I have the pants from the same pattern cut and ready to sew, as well as a skirt (in more of the same fabric as the jacket) from a Simplicity pattern. I had considered being super ambitious and sewing the skirt also this afternoon, but instead I help Gracie clean up (for Santa) and played some Barbies with her. She keeps wanting to play "cheerleader" Barbie. She is going to flip when she gets a set of cheerleader Barbies tomorrow!
They were so fun to make, except for the massive clean-up required after fake fur and bits of microfleece went everywhere! These are the only handsewn gifts I am giving this year.
Well, I will be wearing my new jacket to church this evening, and Gracie will be rocking the nativity scene Feliz dress again. I hope everyone reading this has a Merry Christmas!
