What's A Mom to Do ...... Sew, of Course

First, pictures of one more top for my friend's daughter. Ottobre 3/2006, #36, Tunic Blouse. I used some PRR fabric leftover from a project. I barely squeezed this top out of the fabric. The yoke is not lined, I just used picot elastic and eliminated the zipper.

You can see it in the magazine with a woven:

Here is my tunic from a knit and then a close-up of the applique

Now to title. Tomorrow is Valentine's Day, well actually in 35 minutes. I have not had time to even buy a card for hubby or the girls. I decided the girls really needed to have something to open and what could I sew very quickly? Pajama pants and they were all in need of these. College girl doesn't need pj pants, so I will get make her a purse. I really used some stash tonight. From left to right - 18 year old daughter's with pink gingham knit cuffs, Oldest twin knit with lace trim, youngest twin - knit with ribbon trim. Nothing fancy but I know they will all love to open a present. Now off to wrap.


  1. Very cute top for your friend's dd. Love the fabrics. Also cute pj pants for the girls. It's amazing how different fabrics and trims can create such different looks even in something as simple as pj pants.

    Happy Valentine's Day!

  2. How cute! You make the cutest little things!!
