Nowhere Man Pants

I volunteered a while back to test a pattern for Schwin Designs. I love her blog and thought it would be fun! When I first saw these pants on her blog it only had little highlights and I was so excited to make a pair for little N! When I found out they were boys pants, I was a little bummed, but it all worked out in the end. She asked me to test a 12-18 month old boy pattern. I thought they would be perfect for my nephew B that is about 8 months old, but when I finished they didn't fit him at all, but they did fit N! :) Here is a few pictures of them.

She wasn't cooperating at all, so they aren't the best pictures to show off the pants!

They won't fit her for much longer, but they were perfect for Valentine's Day! :)

New Men's Tshirt

I knew that for Valentine's Day my husband would love nothing more than me to NOT spend any money! Its a common thing with him, which forces me to be a little more creative in my gift giving! A while back I bought a few plain Tshirts in his size when they were on sale for super cheap and had this black one left!

I didn't do anything super fancy...I cut out some freezer paper and ironed it on all random like and then painted the white on....its kinda I like it! I wasn't sure what I was going to add to it, but thought the reddish blob would be fun! I wanted to add another element to it, so I got the lyrics from one of my favorite love songs and printed it onto the fabric. I then cut out the design and sewed it on! Nothing too fancy, but I really love how it turned out!
