I'm a lucky mama because my kids really love it when I sew something for them (really!).

Here is my little girl sporting her new nightgown:

"Look, mom, I'm an angel!" (really)

This is Simplicity 3938 made of girly girl pink heart flannel with heart lace trim. I made a size 5 body with a size 6 length, and am happy with the fit (except the armholes).

I also made some sleep pants for my son out of fun fabric he helped pick out. Flames, camo, and cars fabrics made the "cut" with this fun license plate fabric using Simplicity 4336. I try stacking, cutting, and sewing 2-4 fabrics using the same pattern per sewing session once I like the fit of a pattern. The only modification I made to these pants was to add about a inch to the side seams for roominess and decreasing the seat seam allowance to make a little more seat room. Very comfy fit - perfect for sleeping.

Finished sewing projects celebration!

Impressive! I love how the lace design matches the fabric design.

I love the jammies i've made for my girls. They are so much more comfortable & durable then the store bought variety!

The cars got two thumbs up from BoyWonder!

And the sock that B tried on for me--it is done! BW wore the one sock all morning. The other is in progress. Thanks to B for the consulting work!
