Finally, I have the opportunity to create for my little girl. As I'm working on various projects, M consistently asks "is that for me? Oh, thank you, thank you, thank you!" I feel so guilty. I've made a number of things for her but my goal was to make something for her once per week. I'm lucky if I can make something for her once a month. We've had a number of functions or circumstances where I feel the need to create gifts for the occassions so I've been putting off projects for my own family. On Sunday I finally took the opportunity to recycle one of Rob's old aviatior BDU tops and created a backpack for M. The rest of the top and pants are a project in the works for me -- a bag. The tab closure is from the cuff of one of the sleeves (velcro removed and added magnetic snap). I still need to add a name tape and Rob's badges. M just wanted to wear her backpack right away so I'll have to stich those on while she sleeps. :)
This is one of the pieces that M did while I was sewing. The image is right side up. I just love how "Mommy and Daddy" are lying on their sides while "M" is dancing on top.I'm so in love with it.
Also on Sunday...
