Mother's Day week

My dd school had a Mother's day program in their classroom.They all made us potted plants and oven mitts for our gift. Love it!


Here's a picture of me and the kids at church on Mothers day. Hubby was doing his usher duties when we took this picture. I had a wonderful Mother's day.

The following week was able to do some sewing.






Top: Simplicity 4277
Fabric: cotton blend From Walmart 1.50$ a yard
Size: 10
Conclusion:When I purchased this pattern I didn't pay close attention to how this top was made. It's kind of a close fitting top. I found this out after I made it.If I had caught this I would have went a size larger at the bottom half of this top. I was able to wear it with the knit pants I made but I cannot wear it with my jeans unless I tuck it inside my pants.O well I will know next time.
Pants: Butterick 5146
Fabric: Mystery knit from Walmart 1.50 a yard.
Conclusion: easy easy pair of elastic waist pants. Very very comfortable.I will be making these again.

Well thats it for me!!Happy crafting!!
