Have you heard of the store Once Upon a Child? They buy and sell gently used children's clothing. Julie sorted a pile of Natalie's outgrown clothes, and Mandi and I took them to the store for sale. Although they didn't buy everything, we still sold most and ended up with nice wad of cash for Julie. While we were there, I found this darling sweater on the clearance rack:
My price? $.79 - can you believe it! Mint condition. But when you think of it, a tiny baby will only outgrow a sweater. I think the new grandson will be even sweeter in this sweater.
Last night Natalie stayed over as both Julie and Travis work long hours today. The plan is to take Natie home after supper, get her ready for bed, and then have supper ready for the kids when they get home from work. So not much sewing will be done today unless she takes a nap; but is what I'm working on for her right now:
It's been a while since I've done garment sewing, but the pattern is easy. I wanted to get a little funky and do some applique on the jacket and include a row of ball fringe. I saw the same thing done in a childrens' catalog, but Julie put the brakes on that idea; so this jacket will be pink with cute buttons. The coat will be plain, too. Natie has a birthday on Friday, so I hope to have both done in time.
Hope you have a wonderful weekend. It's cool here, but fall is definitely in the air!
