Sewing party


Well. Not really. My kids are getting used to seeing me hanging out behind the machine. And I can’t really say it’s about Christmas. Just renewed sewing energy. I took a bit of a break after finishing my sew-my-own-clothes-year in October. Now, I am ready to go again. Pants, dolls, eye pillows… all of it.


S needed some pink pants to get her out of those frilly skirts.  She is so picky about her clothing.  I can’t win.  I can’t say that I am a fan of these pants, either, but she was happy.


After picking up the girls from school, my kids, my sister’s kids and my neighbour’s kids tried to negotiate a three-house play date. The seven year-olds at one house, five year-olds at another and two/three year olds at another. None of the big ones wanted to come here. MAN. I tried to lure them by offering to sew doll sleeping bags. No takers! I think maybe watching me sew isn’t so appealing? We are due for something wild. Like cookie baking. Then, maybe I won’t be the lame house.


These pants are in a thrifted wool.  They are too wide, which makes them too heavy.  We’re going to fix that tomorrow.  E was so kind.  She asked to wear them to bed because “they are sooo comfortable, Mom”.  Way to win me over, Kid!

  1. The pink pants are beautiful – my 4 year old would trade her Blinky (bear) for a pair of those, I only make her ‘boring’ clothes!
