I have been busy sewing and sewing and sewing. I am working on a summer wardrobe for the girls, and have been spending as much time as I can trying to get that ready now that the weather is warming up. I tried and tried to get a few pictures of them yesterday as they were running about the yard, but it is hard to catch a fleeing two year old in motion. Hopefully this will give you some idea of what I have had in the works for Anna.
The color appears to be a bit off in this picture, but you can at least see the outfit. The tank top and bloomers were made from one vintage pillowcase that I picked up at an estate sale for 65-cents. I have spools and spools and spools of elastic that will last me the duration of my natural life, so I don't count that in the cost of the outfit. The ribbon I bought with about 100 yards on a spool at the thrift store for about $1. Total cost was under 75-cents. I really get such a little thrill from being frugal and making something new out of something old.
Are you sewing anything for the warm summer months?
I have a tutorial for the bloomers in the works, that I'll be sure to post later in the week. :)
