Until the new year...

I'm all sewn out... I finished nearly everything I wanted to sew for the holidays and now I think I'm going to give my machines a little break for the next few weeks. Here are a couple pics of the kiddos in their PJ's Christmas morning. Little Miss wouldn't cooperate for pics, but my boys are well trained...Santa hats and all.

Here is little Miss Lindsey on Christmas Eve in her Mama-made outfit.

Take care!!

Christmas PJ's

I finished Lindsey's Christmas PJ's today. I LOVE how they turned out!! I still need to finish up the boys'. Matchy-matchy on Christmas morning for my kiddos!!

Yes, candy cane bribe to get her to sit still long enough for pictures!

Snowflake Skirt Set

Here is one of Miss Lindsey's holiday outfits. Embroidered snowflake on tan t-shirt and denim skirt with gathers and ruffle. She wouldn't cooperate very well for pictures, but it does look really cute on her.

Flannel PJ Pants & Sibling Love

PJ pants to match her pillow. I tried them on over her one piece pj's and she refused to let me take them off. I think that's a good sign that she loves her new pants. At least she'll be extra warm tonight.

Lindsey loving on her biggest bubba...both in their new pj pants. I finished up his pj pants today, too. I've only had the things ready for elastic for about a month or so. He likes them, but really anything made from fleece or flannel my boys like because it's "comfy."

Pillow For My Precious!

Miss Lindsey has never had a pillow of her own until today. I bought one little yard of this flannel many weeks ago when it wasn't on sale because my little darling saw it and "made" me buy it. It's hard to say no when she's so excited to see a bolt of fabric with two of her favorite things...pink and hearts. If you heard her chanting, "Mama, pink, heart, pink, heart..." you'd give in, too! After I cut out a pair of pj pants, there was a little rectangle left over that I decided to make into a pillow for her bed. She loves her new "puh-woh." She even brought it with her when we went to pick up her oldest bubba from basketball practice. I think she may have a few more puh-wohs in her future! I should have her pj's that match finished up tomorrow, so that should make her very happy, too!

Not much sewing lately...

I haven't had a chance to sew much lately. But, I did have a chance to shop after Thanksgiving and get some much needed flannel!! Here are some pics of the 46 1/2 yards I bought. Most of it will be used for pj's or pillow cases.

Here are my 3 favorite flannel prints.

And, I did take an evening and cut, cut, cut! I cut out 11 pair of flannel and fleece pj pants. Four for Lindsey, two for each of the boys and one for me. Poor hubby didn't get his cut, yet. Now, time to get busy and sew them! All but one pair for Lindsey will be wrapped up and given to the kids for Christmas Eve presents. I will also make shirts for the red fleece pants for all four kiddos for their matching Christmas pj's.

My hand hurt after cutting all of these...
Take care!
