Look what I made!

Ok, technically I made that foot, too - but I had help. ;)

I had a pair of jammie bottoms that I LOVED. Unfortunately, I loved them so much that I ended up with a big rip in the top of them. So, I repurposed them into jammie bottoms for Jackson! I found the general directions in The Creative Family by Amanda Blake Soule - It was so easy and took 30 minutes from start to finish. That includes getting out/putting away my sewing machine and answering 117 requests from the kids. More pics (my model insisted on action shots):

I love crafting, but I always seem to put it off until "everything is done." There's always more to do, though. I've decided to start grabbing 15-20 minutes here and there to feed my soul.
My MIL bought Kira the dress she's wearing in my Wordless Wednesday post. I think I can figure out how to make something close. We'll see!


  1. That's awesome! I know what you mean about taking time to feed your soul.

  2. That is awesome! I just ordered this book AND got it in the mail yesterday and started reading it. I love, love, love it. It is changing my life and I can't wait to make these pants.

  3. They look great! SuperMama!

    I have that book too, and get so depressed reading it because I want to DO IT ALL. I am especially fond of those pants. You're right; we just have to find the time in 15 minute increments.

    Have you sewn for long? I am still very much a novice, so I would probably use up my 15 minutes finding the power switch on the machine. :)

  4. Jen - I would most definitely describe myself as a novice. I can only sew one basic stitch, but it works for me.

    My friend, Kam, showed me how to thread the machine and some basics about a million years ago.

  5. I'm so impressed that you got that done in 30 mins with kids under foot!!! Great project!
