some crafting activity

i dusted off the sewing machine and made eliot a pair of pants from the Oliver and S sandbox pants pattern. It was really easy to follow and i think they came out nicely. they have awesome girl patterns, i wish they had more for boys! i probably should have made him the 2t as i think he will have to grow into this 3t pair a bit. the stripped part is a jeans material and the pockets came from an old place mat. a tad girly but i'm not going to sweat it.

i still have to put the buttons on the back pockets.

i have also started to learn to hook rugs. so far so good although it has turned hot and humid around here so i haven't really wanted to pick it up and have burlap and wool stuck to my skin.
i am a little panicked about color choice but hopefully that will pass with a few attempts.

Oh, oh! Are you going to make rugs?! My sister Emily really wants to get into that. I'm sure we'll be seeing some ladies making these at the state fair on Wednesday night -- we've seen them the last few years and it makes us want to start right away.

well done! My attempts at clothing, well, leave more to be desired but you make it look easy.
