Here are my Apron and Pants from Carefree Clothes for Girls. This pattern came together quick! Did you all think so? My munchkin seems to like hers although she tells me that she likes her apron better with the opening in the front, like a vest. Its a good idea. Backwards it sort of defeats the purpose of an apron, but I see what she is getting at.
The pants were so easy that I want to make a few more pairs. It took me about 30 minutes to finish one pair. I bet if they were sewn factory style I could get 3 pairs done in an hour. I will need a warmer fabric for winter and they would have to be longer. At this length they are more like capris. Flannel would be great for pj's and corduroy might work for school pants.
I hope you aren't too intimidated by the coat project I planned for this month. I really think it is a lot easier then it looks. I am a little worried my little one is going to insist on pink again and I really really don't want to look at another bolt of bright pink fabric for a while. Anything other then pink. I think I will fight for gray to match the hat I just started knitting for her. It's a Star Crossed Slouchy Beret in the same gray yarn as my last Star Crossed Beret.
Now is the perfect time for a new hat. This past week the morning air has been icy cold and wet. I am scraping slushy water off my windshield and rubbing the fog off my windows before school every morning. All our knits from last year are in a bag somewhere crying for a wash. It might be time to air those puppies out before my ears start to freeze.
Tom and I are celebrating our birthdays on Monday and Tuesday. Mine is Monday, Tom's is Tuesday. We don't have much planned. I think we are going to stay near home, have some yummy food and build some furniture together. Sounds perfect to me.
