No work today!
To celebrate not having to go to work tonight, I spent the morning (despite Jonas's fussiness and refusal to take a good nap [which to me, is at least 1 hour! none of this 25-40 minute stuff!]) with my favorite Hello Kitty sewing machine.
At first I just wanted to adjust the fits on some dresses I found on clearance in the little girls' section at Target. (Aren't they cute? They reminded me of last year's APC dresses, and I'm a sucker for gingham...)
So after fixing some sleeves and taking in the sides a bit, I decided that I should use the leftover fabric from last year's Christmas crafts (I made purses and totes for my friends) and got to work on two bags. This is my sewing table and how the monitor looks when my baby is actually sleeping...
Here's one of the finished bags! I really like this fabric! I was thinking of gifting it, but it's so darn cute and perfect for library trips...
