It's Tackle it Tuesday over at Five Minutes for Mom, and as I wrote in my last post, I've been tackling a lot of unfinished sewing projects this week. The latest, a bunch of little girls' pajamas, cut out ages ago by my husband's grandma. The pajamas are too small for my girls now, but should be a perfect fit for my sister-in-law's two little girls. And they have birthdays coming up soon. Perfect!
I got one set finished over the weekend:
But now I have this left:
Three more sets of pjs to sew, one purple, two blue. I may be overestimating what I can do in a day, but I hope to finish these up and reclaim my dining room table. I'll post an update this evening. Wish me luck!
Update: 10:00 p.m.
Well, I almost made it. I got the second purple set done, then started on the blue, only to find it was a different pattern than the purple. I had to figure out which pattern it was, because the actual pattern pieces weren't attached, and there were four different patterns in the bag. Turns out, the blue ones were a little more complicated, with collars and facings. I finished one blue set, except for the buttons and buttonholes. The pants are done for the second set and the top is about halfway sewn. My table is still a mess. ;o)
All in all, not a bad day's work. I probably need another hour or two to finish the whole job, but I had to give it up for today. Maybe tomorrow...
I don't think I'd have made it this far without Tackle it Tuesday. Thanks for the motivation!
