I have soooooo many sewing chores to do. So many projects partially completed. Blanket orders, dresses, yellow pants, 2 quilts... it's bad. My sewing table exploded.
However.... a certain 3 year old was rather insistent that my precious few minutes of daytime sewing should include new pants for her creep-o doll, Olivia. I resisted, she persisted. There were tears and there was whining. I hate whining. (Despite it's almost perpetual existence in my house, or maybe due to it!) I told her she could help sew! I gave her some fabric, scissors, and free reign to create! Still... she wanted PANTS!
So Olivia got some pants.
I used no pattern. I held up 4 scraggly pieces of fabric, lined them up kinda sorta, and cut out a shape that looked like a pants pattern in a size I hoped would fit. I didn't pin them, I just sewed. I used bias tape that didn't match for the elastic waist, and orange thread because it was in the machine. And a mermaid button. They fit! They are cuter than I expected.
Raina is thrilled. And Olivia looks much warmer. The pants don't do much to help her in the creep-o department, though...
Now it's almost 10 pm. I've made doll pants. I've blogged about doll pants. Maybe I should try to put a dent in that sewing mess now?
