Not too bad for an hour's work.
I was ready to pack it in for the night when I remembered that Lauren made a special request: a colorful bag. I searched my fabric stash and came up short. So I looked through my closet and found an old knit sweater/shirt I'll never fit into again. Actually, I couldn't believe I ever fit into it! (Note to self: get your butt back on the treadmill!)
After 20 minutes of pinning and sewing and another 20 minutes making 5 fabric flowers, I had a decent little bag for a 4-year-old to tote around essential little girl things.
But what about the boys? Inspired by last month's All About the Boy over at Made and Made by Rae, I decided not to leave them out of the fun. For Brandon, my adorable chubby-cheeked 15 month old nephew, I made a bowtie shirt.
Brandon's older brother Ryan strikes me as a tie guy. So he got this shirt:
I found some
The boys weren't as excited about the shirts as they were about the eggs with goodies inside, but my SIL's expression totally made up for that! I can't wait to see them on the boys. At least they'll look adorable when they're driving my SIL nuts. :)
