Passing the Time

It is official. I have 3 weeks left. If I have the baby anytime after 3 weeks then I will be able to stay at the Birth Center and not be transfered to the hospital. That is something big enough to celebrate! It also has caused a little anticipation about having a new baby join our family. I am trying my best to stay calm and patient. What better way to stay calm than to sew!

These are Scarlet’s new pants from Amanda Soule’s pattern in The Creative Family. Instead of using a T-shirt, like she did, I used a pretty blue linen I found in the remnants pile at JoAnns. The trim was done with some fabric I just had lying around. This is the first pair of pants I’ve ever made. I am super happy with them. She will probably end up with many more pairs. The linen is perfect for the hot weather coming up.

This skirt I threw together last night. Believe it or not, I had a more difficult time with this than I did the pants. I got this from Oliver + S Lazy Days Skirt Pattern, free on their blog. The fabric was taken from my pile of extra fabric, mostly found in the remnant piles, my favorite place in any fabric store. I love the end result, but there were a few times I had to walk away and come back with some chocolate milk in my tummy. 🙂 

There has been some other sewing projects going on around here for Easter. It’s become a combined effort between me, Gran, and Grandma. Cant wait to show you pictures of Easter!
