one last project

well here is one last project for ya' before i start posting only about the arrival of #2 and every post centers around her cute face!!
...
i offered to make a blessing outfit for caleb (my nephew, he belongs to my sister nicole) well, i figured i better make good on that offer before my life becomes consumed with #2. yesterday our ward had a "super saturday" and i opted not to sign up for anything since it was so soon to my due date and i didn't know if i would be able to participate. well i ended up going anyways, and i toted along my sewing machine, and my serger and all the things that need to some along with that equipment. (which was a blast 'cuz a couple of my friends brought their machines and we all worked on our projects)
...
the outfit is actually very similar to the one that i already made for him (check it out, in case you forgot). instead of a normal t-shirt collar i made it kinda like a polo (which i think turned out ADORABLE considering it was an experiment), the booties are a new and improved pattern, so i hope they fit better!! and the tie is reversible, backed with the same fabric as the grey pants, which means he can totally rock the white shirt and the grey pants and wear the tie with the grey side out!!
...
i think it turned out totally cute, and i hope nicole likes it as much as i do. pretty good for a satruday, huh?!?! it makes me sooooo excited to make #2's blessing dress ... i have so many ideas, i need to narrow it down and figure out what i want.

oh and the whole thing is made 100% from recycled materials!! (ok, not 100% i purchased the elastic, but does that really count??!!??!!) so it's a totally "green" blessing outfit. yeah for helping out the environment.

Can I borrow some of your sewing talent for a little while?? I have zero knowledge of how to sew, and I think for my b-day I am going to get a cheep sewing machine so I can figure it out. I love that your outfit is made of recycled materials too!!!!!

That is SO cute! Chandler just got blessed and I made his outfit (My first time sewing with a pattern!) I love what you came up with, and Caleb will totally be able to wear it again. I hope Nicole posts pictures.

My question is: How did you 'tote' a sewing machine AND and serger with all of the stuff at 9 months?? Very cute outfit and perfect for your little nephew.

cute, where we were you when my boys were being blessed :P No, actually I needed you when Emma was being blessed and she was 5 lbs and everything was enormous on her.
