Blanket pants for the little mr. in your life

We are spring cleaning this month and I started with the youngest kid's room. Found a few of these old blankets that come with stuffed figures. Well my kids are to big to sleep with them, as I have been told on a few occasions (like every time I put them on their beds.) So in spirit of spring cleaning I found a great way to keep the blanket, yet make it usable.  I made lounge/sleep pants for my "little" man based off the tutorial at The Ribbon Retreat Blog, that my mom used. It's a great blog spot, so check it out. The tutorial is pretty easy to follow. The blanket was too small in length so I used the leftover material to lengthen the pants, plus used material for a waistband. My son loves his jammies!

Red Rocker Girl Skirt!

Finally perfected the pleated skirt in the "new designs coming post," so love the wide pleats. Now this skirt has a exposed metal zipper with red tape (with placket), to give it a rocker feel. This skirt sits low on the hips and looks great with black or white tank tops or t-shirts. The fabric is mock dupini silk and has a great sheen to it. It's a perfect skirt to go dancing at the school  dance in. The prefect rocker girl outfit.

It also has a Monster High feel for the more "grown-up" girl, which
is my duaghter's new fave.
