I’m not awol

I just spent a lovely long weekend with my very dear friends the Stagers. It’s always a hard thing to leave them since they have become much more family-like than just friends.

Nothing recycled has been made. I don’t know if it is the change in the year, or the awesome sale at JoAnn’s when I went to buy thread, but I have been making thing with NEW MATERIALS. Crazy. I’ll have to post the leggings I made for the girls today. They are SO cute, they look like rainbow-heart long johns. Love them! Very little girl. I asked Liv if she wanted them to be Jammies or Clothes and she said clothes. So that was what they wore today.

Hopefully I can find a picture, but JoAnn’s website is truly awful. AWFUL!

I know that I have fallen victim to marketing, because I am so sure that I remember a shockingly similar fabric from when I was a kid. They are stroking my nostalgia nerve, I can feel it. I did use recycled knit bindings for the leg openings, so I guess I’m not sewing completely out of character. It is fun to just find a print and say, I need to make something out of this. I still saved money, 2 pairs of leggings with half a yard of fabric left over for $5. Not bad!
