While the Kids are Away....

Mama hit the sewing machine.

The kiddos weren't "away-away"....daddy just took them out for the afternoon (THANKS, honey! Not that you read my blog or anything) and I was able to get some sewing done. A few special requests for Christmas and then a couple of extra that I put in my still alive Etsy shop. I still have some pieces sitting on my table waiting to get finished up. All reversible toddler/preschool crayon aprons. Or...as I showed in another post, put clothespins in them and your little helper can help with the laundry!

Cupcakes - well, isn't she? :)

My favorite. Definitely buying more of this fabric!

Who doesn't love mermaids?

Do the colors POP or what? LOVE!

  1. I love them all! You always pick the best fabrics :)

  2. Sharon, those are gorgeous! I like that you're picking fabrics with more pattern in a little darker of colors. ER has a crayon folio thingamajig I bought before I started blogging and realized so many talented mamas were out there. But it has a light fabric and crayon stains all over it.

    PS, I WILL post pics of the fabulousness you sent me:) It's just been terribly cloudy here in MI and it's kinda hard to photograph it well in the car with poor lighting.

    PS 2: I WILL get you paper crafting eventually missy! But for now, or really well sometime in the future as I can't promise I'll finish them in a timely manner....a little paper goodness will evenutally be on its way from me to you♥

  3. Your aprons are adorable. Too bad my girls are not this small any more. Stopping by from SITS today, have a great day!

  4. Really cute...love those mermaids!
