i am still known to sew, if i have to.

we’re going to a birthday.  and as you know, sewing is the proven alternative to shopping.  a man’s gotta do what a man’s gotta do.

it’s even marked with my blood.

the unfortunate thing about making things for other people is that you never want to make them again, even if it devastates your greedy two year old.  no one really feels sorry for the pirate anyways.  except strangers.  they seem to be highly susceptible.

others know better.  like the cat.  today jael came up to me crying, “the kitty bit me!  the kitty bit me!”  naturally, the tufts of black hair poking up between her sticky fingers was a dead give away.

    I love this apron! I have three little girls who would just go crazy over it. What pattern did you use and how hard was it?

    You just made some little girl feel very special. And I am wise to the little pirate but i love to indulge anyway. Guess it is a good thing we are coming to spoil and plunder.

    tiffany – i don’t think it was hard. if you like sewing. i didn’t use a pattern and i just made it from stuff i had laying around. like old sheets and a table cloth. 😉

    i was just going to ask you where you got the blue-green (the middle ruffle) fabric but if it was a sheet, shucks…

    I saw this skirt http://www.garnethill.com/everyday-cotton-skirt—little-girls-26-girls/164987 the top blue one and wanted to make it for mallory, but you should make one for the pirate, so she will feel better 🙂
