Ahoy Matey!

Two weeks ago the kids were invited to a pirate themed birthday party. Amy and I got together the day before to lunch and sew. We knocked out two pairs of shorts, two skirts and two shirts in a few hours. Without tears and I only had to rip out a few seams.

I would show you her kids too but I managed to lose pictures when copying them to the NAS. I’m bummed. I had all sorts of cute kid pictures. I suppose it’s a little like theĀ  olden days when a roll of film would get lost.


Anyway, here’s Elliot in his HAND MADE pirate outfit. He’ll be wearing the pants/shorts for years to come. The shirt is embellished with an iron-on. Audrey (not pictured) didn’t want to be a pirate, so I convinced her to be a pirate princess. She wore a tightly fitted (read: too small) tank made of pink pirate themed material, a pink tutu and a hot pink bandanna on her head. The tutu was made on a ribbon and is wrap-around, it’ll provide lots of dress-up fun for some time.

In conclusion: Amy and I rock the sewing machine. Checkout her other projects.
