In a crafty kind of mood!

When I get started sewing and crafting, I find myself in a crafty kind of mood and start doing {and wanting to do} a lot of different projects. I almost finished the boys' outfits today....but I am still putting off attaching the buttons {I really hate them that much}. So instead I decided to make Henry and Grant a Christmas shirt to wear to the holiday parades and other festivities that we are going to in the next few weeks. Two shirts probably only took an hour and half....and that was while all three of the boys were awake!! I kind of had an idea in my head, but they didn't really come together until I got out the spray adhesive and starting putting the trees on the shirts. This is how they came out:
Pretty cute if I do say so myself!!
Before I added the tree trunks, I ask Henry what the shirts looked like. His first answer was pyramids. I added the star to the top of the tree and he said triangles and then he guessed a castle. After I added the trunks he said "Ohhh, Christmas trees...hahaha." Grant's only guess was a castle but I think that was just him copying Henry. I think they turned out really well and look just like little Christmas trees. I guess the boys may be wearing "castle shirts" at the Christmas parade on Saturday!! Oh, well at least they will look cute anyway!


Also, I figured I would post a picture of Eli being cute in his overalls since I didn't make him a Christmas shirt! He has baby's first Christmas shirt that he is going to wear instead.

Christmas Outfits

I have been working on the boys' Christmas outfits for a few days....and I am almost finished. The only things left to do are the buttonholes and buttons {my least favorite part after cutting out the pattern}. So I thought I would post a few pictures of the whole process from start to {almost} finish!

The pattern, fabric, and a few of my materials.

Sewing some of the pieces together.Grant's outfit partially sewn together....without the lining.Programming the monogram on my computer.The machine doing the monogramming. Red and Green. So nice for Christmas!The completed outfits minus the buttonholes and buttons!The boys are going to look so cute in their outfits....I am still trying to decide if I want to monogram Henry's sweater so that he really matches Grant and Eli. His sweater has green stripes that matches really well, but I think having his monogram on it would make it look even better! I guess it depends on how long it takes me to get the buttons done!

Sewing and Procrastinating

I am supposed to be working on Grant and Eli's Christmas John-Johns, but find myself procrastinating by reading various oh so interesting blogs. When I started this blogging stuff.....I thought, my life is so boring why would anyone want to read about it. Then I started reading other people's blogs and found their everyday boring stuff very interesting. So I think, maybe someone else will find my everyday boring stuff interesting too! Or maybe not! I don't think anybody other than me even looks at my blog......that's okay though, I find semi-anonymous blogging to be very therapeutic.

So here I am, procrastinating. Not making the boys' outfits. Did I mention that they both have to be sewn and monogrammed by Friday so we can have Christmas pictures made. I guess I should stop typing and start sewing.....Maybe I will post a picture of their outfits when {if} I get finished!
