She's Crafty...He's Messy
I saw a post on how to make a baby gown out of an old t-shirt and decided to give it a try. I whipped it up in about an hour which is why it is not perfect by any means. I think not having wonderful sewing skills could be a possible reason for an imperfect gown, but that is just me! Looking back on it, it may also help if I read the directions as I went instead of just figuring it out as I sewed. I am going to have John wear it tonight...if it fits. It was sitting on the table this morning when I walked by and I realized that John doesn't wear gowns all that often (Brad calls them dresses even though John only wears them to sleep). So I thought I could modify the pattern slightly and make shirts instead! So that will be my next project! If he is going to venture out of the house with it on, I will have to learn how to make nice hems I guess... :)
On a side note, although I have nothing to base this on, I have always though boys are a little more rough and that John would grow up to make a big mess in our house and destroy everything in his path. Well, today marked the first day of destruction. He was playing on the floor and when I looked up he was wrapped around the coffee table leg and playing with the magazines. He pulled a couple down and when I sat him up, he proceeded to rip a couple pages out and put them in his mouth. Must be tasty because it kept him entertained for about 15 minutes!
