snail mail

well. i am still checking my mailbox with anticipation, every day, waiting for my swap goodies to arrive! i know that my flirty apron is lost somewhere in the usps, but i've looked at the photos of it and it's a beautiful emmeline, done in cupcake fabric. so sad. but where oh where is my lunchbox bag? my mother's day apron? my dishcloths?

in other crafty news, i made emma some wide leg pj pants last night out of flannel. the dinosaur print came from my grandma's stash. the only thing is that when i prewashed it, it already started pilling, so who knows how long they will last. especially since alex has already laid claim to them, pink dinosaurs and all! i made the pattern based off a pair of her sweats, and i was really surprised how cute they came out! i see more pairs in her future. and i'm planning to make some for zach out of a t-shirt that i got paint on. it's a nice blue shirt, and i felt bad about ruining it, and now i feel better since they will make great loungey pants for summer.

i cut out another pair of capris for her, these in a bright abstract butterfly print. of course i didn't pay attention while laying the pieces out, and so there's only pieces of butterflies. i am such a MISER! i was trying to save the biggest piece of fabric i could, and let design go right out the window.


































so i moved on to papercrafts. i made a banner for the boys room, i know, it's so last week and all, but i still think it's cute. the kids thought it was too cool. it has both their names spelled out. we are moving zach's crib in there this month, so i thought we needed a celebration banner! i made the gingham curtains in there too. go, me!
