Sugar and Spice and Everything Nice

That may be what little girls are made of but after making these footie pj’s I’ll stick with the boys. It took me longer to finish these two pair than it did to complete all 3 of the boys. The pattern used is McCall’s 6288 which I’ve had for years so I don’t know if it’s still in print. I don’t know what happened with the zipper’s they’re off and the perfectionist in me really wants to take them out but I’m more tired than I am a perfectionist because I’m not taking them out. I got lucky with the Christmas fabric I found it at JoAnn’s for 1.00/yd but of course they didn’t have much left just enough for this. The other fabric is all from my Wal-Mart stash so it was .74/yd.

The last one on the right should look familiar it's the same fabric I used to make my Father's robe and pajama bottoms last year.

I wasn’t going to post the preemie gown because it’s for my friends daughter, the one I made the layette set for, she was born early and has complications so I want to be respectful as they go through this difficult time but she is a beautiful little angle so I made this to match her sisters pjs. I put snaps on the back and added ribbon ties that can be used to hold the tubes in place.

I love these snaps but they are a bear to put on, you have to use a hammer but if you hit them to hard they will crack.

I have been crocheting too, I made another hat for the baby, the first one was too big and I finished this scarf for my friend that moved to Colorado but if she doesn't claim it before Christmas it will be regifted lol.

Since the girls pj’s took so long that put me a day behind I don’t know where I’m going to find the 6-7 hours I’m going to need to finish my friends jacket but I’ll figure something out.

This is a picture of my buffet table which is one of my trash to treasure projects, this use to be a dresser I took the mirror off and covered it with fabric and now I have a very nice buffet table and I don’t care if it gets dirty because I can just change the fabric. Since it use to be a dresser it has all those handy drawers that I use for storage. I’m dangerous with a glue and staple gun.

And the plant stand next to the table was $5.00 at a yard sale. I’m just so thrifty.

I guess I'll go wrap some presents. I hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas.

I won't keep you in suspense I will post the jacket once I have it finished.
