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.
