Deep Breath In....

.....and RELAX!!!!

Oh my goodness....they are done!!!!!
Remember when I was so excited to make these?

I think they turned out so cute, but I will never make them again!

I am way too impatient. There were too many pieces (cut 4 of each), too much adhering (iron on and spray adhesive), too much having to pay attention to the grain and way too much thinking involved.

Am I glad I did it? YES! I think they are so cute and will definitely be unique. I got to practice some sewing techniques that I don't usually do.... and some I used to hate (bias)! I think I may actually be a fan of bias tape now, imagine that.


If you are an experienced seamstress.....yes.
If you are patient....yes.
If you realize you won't finish them in one sitting....yes.

If you are new to sewing.....no.
If you are impatient.....at your own risk :)
If you need them tomorrow.......no.
I was right about one thing though. The girls will difinitely go GA-GA!


  1. Great job! They sure are adorable! :)

  2. I can't sew a lick and am scared to death of the sewing machine but darn, I wish I could make them they are soooo cute! Great job!

  3. Ohhhhhh I LOVE THEM!!!! I NEEEEDDDD Them!!!! I will get you those addresses tonight! :)

  4. I love them! I am totally going to commission my mother in law!

  5. Thanks for the review!!! I have been eyeballing these, but I think I may wait. I am a very impatient person, and I have a toddler to top it off. HA! They would probably never get done!!!!

    They are extremely cute though!

  6. Wow! These turned out great! Your patience paid off and enjoy giving them to your girls :)
