New Clothes

Yesterday I finally got my ass in gear to sew again!  I told Ingrid right before I ended up in the hospital that I would make her a pair of new cozy pants.  And since I've been home she keeps asking me when I'm going to make them...So I did yesterday and then what do you know, they are enormous and won't fit for another year.  Oops. 

Otis' fit him, though.  Do you know how hard it is to make newborn pants??  Their inseam is like three inches!  I cut these out based on a pair of pants I'd make my Cabbage Patch doll that Ingrid plays with.  No joke, my kid wears doll clothes...


















We got a package in the mail from my brother and his family yesterday.  Guess what was in it for Ingrid?!  She gasped "ooh, a tooth fairy dress!"  There are wings as well but I have to come up with something to keep them on, they kept falling off.


















Ingrid threw the world's biggest tantrum last night, it was amazing.  Brendan was trying to get her pjs on and she kept kicking him.  We told her no books before bed if she kept doing it.  She kept kicking, we said no books, and she lost it.  LOST IT!  Screaming, crying, stomping her feet, hitting the walls, you name it, she did it to show how pissed she was.  It's really the first tantrum we've had, usually she lets it go pretty easily.  But last night she kept carrying on for over an hour!  I put her in bed, she jumped up screaming about books.  She finally calmed down for awhile and then twenty minutes later she'd start crying about books again.  One am and she wakes up crying for books.  I hope that lesson will stick with her!  It was not a pleasant thing to go through, and I totally see why parents cave in and just give the kid what they want...

We had a Tinkerbell dress last year, er, year before now..., and my sister snapped the wings on with sewn snaps on both dress and wing in 3 or 4 different spots.

Those pants are great!

We have a Tinkerbell dress with wings that don't stay on, also. I'm curious to see what solution you come up with!

OMG! ADORABLE PIC! Both of them actually! :)

After son#2 was born, everyone kept asking me about how my 4YO was taking it. Believe it or not, I had trouble answering. For 2-3 weeks, he just wasn't himself and that was the only way I could describe it. There wasn't anything very distinctive. I don't know if that is what I is going through but if so, hang in there!

Love the pants! Got a chuckle out of the 3 inch inseam ;-) I have a bunch of light denim and corduroy in my fabric stash that I plan on making pants for Cole next fall. It will be about 6-9 month size so they'll be a little bigger :-) Then again, maybe I should sew them up now instead of waiting!!
