Yeah, I know, not a very creative title. I've been laid low by a cold that is seriously sapping my crafting energy. I did, however manage to make handmade christmas presents for s's teachers.
I made these bags from home dec fabric I had laying around. The pattern is the sweetheart shopper by Keyka Lou. I simplified the pattern by ommitting the lining and button closure. It's more of a grocery tote than a handbag as I was going for cute but functional.
The last day of school before winter break was Pajama Day. I asked S the night before which PJ she wanted to wear and she told me she wanted the purple one with the princesses on it. Apparently, while I was moving my fabric stash to their new home, she had spotted some purple princess fabric that I had purchased a while ago, probably to appease her so I could shop in peace. And so it was that I found myself making pajamas at 9:00pm the night before they were supposed to debut.
The bottoms are from a simplicity pattern in size 2. It was a perfect fit except for the length but that was all the fabric I had to work with. The top is the The Sweet Little Dress by Leila and Ben. I used a fold over elastic for the collar. The sleeves and hem are serged using a rolled hem. It was over and done with in a couple of hours.
S was super excited about her new jammies. She wore them all day and that night. The next morning she woke up and very sincerely thanked me for her princess jammies.
