I realize it seems like I am off my game already - I said I would update on Fridays, this is not a Friday.
Well, on Friday B had surgery - nothing major, but still a little nerve wracking. Watching a nurse carry your screaming baby away, even for a small out patient procedure, is torturous. Luckily all went well and he is healing great - life would be easier if I hadn't cut his catheter down to a nub by mistake (sleep deprived mama and wriggly 18 month boy with a complicated double diaper = disastrous results). Traveling 2 hours each way for all the followup appointments is probably going to be the hardest part on all of us.

But I did sew this week!!!
And drum roll please (da da da dum...........)
THE JACKET IS DONE!!!!
not just sorta done, 100% done. And I LOVE it. It isn't perfect, but it looks great, and the best thing is that B loves it. I put it on him after finally getting the zipper in (smurfity smurf smurf smuf, zippers!) and he ran all over the house giggling, and cried when I took it off. I take that as a compliment!
The materials in this jacket include: khaki capris, men's dress dirt, men's sweater, my wedding aisle runner, and a zipper I have had in my stash for some reason since college.
yes, yes, these are terrible pics... I'll take real ones eventually, but these are the proof!
*And yes, my children do wear pants - just somehow never when I throw something on them to snap a picture ;op
I will be doing a tutorial for the jacket (well maybe multiple stages of tutorial) in October.
(there is always a photo bomber lurking!!!)
This upcoming week is 100% back to the BOYS! I need to start working on my fashion inspiration look (I'm doing pants, sweatshirt, suspenders, and hat - and maybe a shirt, but I might have something in his wardrobe that will work, is is bad to mix???) And I need to draft my pattern for the White Sheet Challenge - I have a boy and girl item in mind (both will require fabric treatments that I have never before tried).
Whew - what a week!
What have you been sewing???? Link up your kid creations to the flickr group and get featured next Friday! (I will also be picking 2 bloggers at the very end to guest post here at Winter Wonderings...)
Wonder What Operation: Project $0 is all about???
