I bought a pattern yesterday to make legogirl some flannel pajama pants....
thought I would dust off the sewing machine. All the patterns I had for the boys were too big!!!!
So, hopefully by the end of the week I will be posting some Sesame Street pajama pants.
:)

when grandkids were younger each christmas i made them new night shirts for boys and a gown for the girls. usually flannel. tried to find fabric that suited them, music notes for a budding musician and so on. they really looked forward to them and wore them long after they were to short.

Okay, I know I have mentioned this a couple of other places but I am finding I am not as crafty as I used to be. I was working on my crochet project today only to find after working on the yoke of a baby sweater for 2 hours (you have to realize one half of the yoke on a sweater for a one year old can't be that big), I realized I had the pattern opened to the girl's version not the boy's and was out 5 stitches per row. I was one row from finishing too!

Must be the pain meds.....

Reading about the quilts and flannel jammies, my MIL made each boy a flannel quilt when they were born. Then when they moved to big boy beds they got a twin sized one. They loved them so much! My youngest slept under his until he went off to college. Thought the cowboy motif on his blanket might be fodder for teasing. They were the yarn tied quilts. She also made a queen sized quilt for DH and me when we got married. Usually, she would jsut do simple block patterns but for mine she went all out and made a sampler quilt all sorts of patterns. It started to look a bit worn so I removed it from the bed and put it away in the cedar chest before it fell apart.

This is so wierd... I already posted this.... I should know I did, it takes 10 minutes for me to upload.... ok....

Here's the 2 reasons I learned to crochet.

The doll dress was made my my late SIL... she made almost 20 of them and I always wanted to be able to make them myself.... we never got the chance before she died.... so I shoved the thought way far away with the sewing machine she taught me to use.....
But then about 2 years ago my oldest son asked for an American Flag blanket. I wanted to knit one but all I could find patterns for was crochet. So for him I learned. I think Melissa was with me guiding me along.
Pretend the stars are all placed and sewn on and trimmed up.... he forgot I made it by now, its been in the corner for a year because I can't get the quiet time to get it finished.
I'm hoping it will be a Christmas gift for him...

Wow! Way to go! The blanket will make a wonderful Christmas blanket! That is an amazing doll dress too. It looks too difficult for me to make.
