Made by Me Mondays - PJ Pants

Alright so I made these for Christmas presents this year.  I made all the nephews and my son PJ pants for Christmas this year.  My good friend Sharon indulged me and help me with these.  She has the magic equipment that makes doing these so much easier.  Thanks for sharing your serger with me.  Really I need to invest in one soon.  I'll add it to the ever growing list of gadgets I'd love to have someday.
I put really cute buttons on the front so the kids could tell the front from the back.  They were fun to make and I think we sewed five pairs in one hour.  Quick project.

Made by me Mondays -Over the Shoulder Tote for Ducky

My niece got this fabric and pattern from her grandmother last year for Christmas.  She had come over and was planning on having me show her how to make it and help her make it.  Unfortunately we didn't get a chance to do it together and she asked me to hang onto it and to sew it for her.  I had it for a few months leading up to Christmas past but I just didn't have a minute to sew it. 
 I was off between Christmas and New Years and we were headed over there boxing day to spend some time together.  So that morning I decided to see if I could pull it off before it was go time.  It took me only about 3 hours max to sew this tote with the pattern that she had.  Coconuts is modeling it for me.  I think I may try to make her one as well.  Isn't it a darling bag
 This button is an old one I ripped off some clothing I was disposing of.  Does any one else keep old buttons from things before they throw them away?  I love doing that.
Here is a better side shot of the tote.  The fabric choice that her grand mother picked really is adorable.  Next time Ducky we'll do some more sewing together.

Papier Thursday - Valentines Day Treats

Happy Valentines Day! 
I hope you all get to spend the day with the people you love.

I've wanted to make these valentines for the kids to take to school for a while.  For Coconuts I needed only about 5 shots and I had one I could use.  But Buddy Boys is my little prankster and so he kept making silly faces and this is the best of the twenty or so pictures I took of him.  He's going to start school next year, I hope his teacher loves a little wise crack cause he's on his way.
I sure do love my kids a whole bunch, aren't they sweet! 
Being a working mother I sometimes feel like my kids miss out on all the fun things that stay at home mothers get to do, so I try when I can to do these little extras for them.  I put this all together in the fridge the night before and I set it out for my family before I was out the door this morning at seven am.  They called me to let me know they loved it. 
Happy Valentines Y'all!
