One of my favorites

What do you do when you are stuck at home with no car and the weather outside is frightful?
You make matching shirts of course!

As I may have said it before, I make things.
I do it because it keeps me sane.
It gets out nervous energy. It puts my mind to use when I am thinking something out.
I saw this book a few months ago at the bookstore, and had to go back and get it the very next day. It was one that I just had to have. And I love it. It is one of my favorite go to items when I feel the need to make something. Every project takes only a yard of fabric or LESS. And there is a lot I want to make in there!

I have so far made a very cute tool belt apron (for myself).
And a sewing kit is just about done.
These shirts were sooooooo EASY!
AND the girls were so happy.
{My poor son. ;-(}

I am sad to say I am out of fabric...and I truly wish the fabric fairies would just send me a box of some new yards of happy fabric (cause like I said I don't have a car for a bit)...

But I am very happy I picked up this book.
Glad that we could fill up some of the afternoon with the quick project making a couple of matching shirts that they can now maybe go outside and play in this HOTTTT weather!


  1. The only things I seem to make are messes.

    Those shirts are way cute.

  2. I am sure you make way better than messes!!!!
    Thank you!


It's fun to get love notes:
