Maizie Happenings

Well the Christmas dress just didn't happen this year. I wasn't heart broken at all. There are plenty of Christmas's in the future. Right now I'm trying to work out a 1st birthday party outfit. One of the biggest problems I have right now with making M little clothes is that she is so slender so most patterns end up being quite big. But we're working on it, and I'm sure we'll have an outfit for her birthday party in February.

Jared and I took her to see Santa Claus. I'm not convinced that next year's pic will look any different.

Yesterday we went to Cabela's and we took Maizie around to look at the different animals and fish. She liked the fish tank best. The one fish was looking straight out so it made for a cute picture.

Some PJ Pants

Since I'm obsessed with sewing projects right now, the neices got some PJ pants along with their gift cards for Christmas. My cute niece Haley who lives in TX got the blue zebra stripe pair. I love the fabric for the cuff. But it was popular at a little fabric store by my house that I only got enough for the cuffs. I would love to have made Maizie a summer top out of it.

My other cute neice Paige got a pair that matched Maizie's pj pants since I had some leftover fabric and it's colder here than in TX. These were made out of the same flannel I used to M's.

Both pants were a hit and had a few requests to make others. Good thing Valentine's Day is coming up.

Plan B and C

Remember this? It just wasn't meant to be. I had the first fabric snafu and then when I ordered other fabric for the jacket when it arrived it just wasn't right. So I've moved on. If Maizie gets a homemade Christmas dress this year it will be our Christmas miracle. But I have hope! So we moved on to The Claire Dress seen here:

I loved the striped tights with the polks dots. I found these tights today online. They're called Peppermint Stripe. I've got some vacation days from work coming up so here's to hoping that Maizie will take some substantial naps so that I can spend some time in my basement.
