Summer Outfit

Aaron and I take the kids on one-on-one outings each month and this month I got to take Lena. Since it was us girls we went to the fabric store! I let her pick out some fabric and we found a pattern so that I could make her a little outfit. I love the fabric she picked. Although I think sometimes I am better off without a pattern. It came out way too wide for her, so I need to figure out how to fix that. I safety pinned it for her today, but I don't want to always have to safety pin it.

As you can tell she is very difficult to take pictures of. :)

Rag Quilt

I've only made two quilts in my life. I made one when I was 16 and then this one. This is a rag quilt made out of cut up pieces of my old pajama pants. So, literally, rags. It is kinda cool to make something completely out of something else. It wasn't too difficult, but it did take time.

Simple Birthday Pennants

Two of our kids have birthdays at the beginning of July, so 'tis the season to decorate. I made three of these simple pennant banner things. They liven up the place and make it feel festive. :)

I just cut a bunch of triangles out of construction paper and sewed them together in a rainbow pattern. I love all the bright colors.
