With that being said, all this crazy weather has inspired more sewing projects - along with the GAP coupon I used on Friday.
The shirt is from Baby Gap - I had a 30% off coupon. They had a pair of shorts there very similar to these but they were $24. Even with the coupon, I can make them cheaper than that!
Complete outfit - total cost $10
The material was so charming that I had to make a pair of pants too!
Then there was the left over Elmo material. Since I already had a template for shorts, I went ahead and made a pair of Elmo shorts.
With the left overs of the left overs, I pulled together this lightweight blanket - perfect for spring nights!
Now that you've seen the projects, I've decided to have my very first giveaway.
Giveaway rules: For every comment you leave on this blog or T Rex Tales (starting with yesterday's postings), I will give you one chance to win a custom, handmade item in the fashion of any of the above items (toddler pants, toddler shorts, or spring blanket). If you currently are or become a follower of either of the blogs, I will double your chances of winning. You can comment as much as you want per posting but only one per person per posting counts. Giveaway closes Wednesday, March 25th. I will post the winner on Thursday, March 26th on T Rex Mom and Dad Tales.
By the way, I caught Thomas doing this while I was working on my projects. Yes, he figured out a way to turn the lights on and off without our help.
I hope to hear from you soon...
