My sewing machine has been collecting dust since I made myself a maternity skirt a year ago. The girls have been napping relatively well lately so I decided I needed to find something to do while they sleep to get me out of my normal housework :) So, I decided it was about time I made something for my babies. Plus, my mother in law is in town and I wanted her to think her son married a talented woman.
First, I made a new car seat cover. We had one cover that was purple and the other one that was brown. Everyone thought the baby under the brown cover was a boy. So much for gender neutral. I was so tired of everyone calling Lydia a boy, so I made her a new purple cover. Didn't it turn out cute!?!?!? The sad thing is, I still have people ask me if they are a boy and a girl. Sigh.
Next, I wanted to make them sister outfits. There are all sorts of big/little sister outfits out there, but do you know how hard it is to find a shirt in Eden's size that says Big Sister? I guess most babies aren't a big sister. Rather than spend $40 on a custom outfit from Etsy, I figured I could make my own. So I made these adorable skirts and onesies and it only cost me a couple of bucks each!
|Twin Sister Outfits! I love that the Littler Sister is clearly the bigger sister still.|
Since I had all my sewing supplies out, I decided I might as well make an extravaganza out of it and sew one more thing. I can't wait for the girls to wear these peasant dresses and bloomers!
The nice thing about having to sew two of something, is theoretically, I learn my lesson with the first one and don't make as many mistakes with the second one. The bad thing is, by the time I get to the second one, my patience is wearing thin and I make just as many mistakes! Oh well, it's worth it because my girls are just so cute and it was a lot of fun to sew a few things for them.
