Yes - in my mom's old pattern sewing box - which she has passed onto me since she no longer sews.
I want to make both these patterns SOOOOOO badly - but am seriously intimidated!
and my thrift store find - 25C a pattern!!!! I want to make the top 2 right ones for my girl and girl on the way! (size 2t and 8-10lbs)

Well I have been on a sewing spree the past 2 days it would seem!
Made a floor pillow (if you want a good tutorial check out the living with punks blog)
An Oliver and S Ice cream top for the babes (the floral is vintage Czechoslovakian fabric)
and the babes really needed some summer jammies for slightly cooler nights. So I used the freebies pattern for singing up to sewcanshe.com's newsletter and the top is the sophie tunic by sisboom. I think they look a bit like scrubs so I'm not sure how I feel about them - but they are just jammies...
Then I realized that throwing a few pencil crayons in my purse for the babes when we go for a car ride is driving me nuts - so I made her a zipper pencil pouch with the leftover floor pillow fabric. (LOVE the fabric.)
And that has been my sewing the past 2 days. Not too bad for 29 weeks pregnant with a head cold!
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!!

She helped me rub tired leg gel on my legs and I did hers
We buffed our nails
Picked out a polish colour
and let painted toes soak in the water!
A VERY relaxing morning activity - and outside (all before 9am - because by 9am it was already getting too hot for this pregnant woman)
The shirt/dress the babes is wearing is from this tutorial (with free pattern) I did awhile back
In other news I made these cute bibs for my daughter and her cousin who are going to be flower girls together ! The bibs match their dresses and the wedding colours perfectly!
Want your own dress-up bibs check out my etsy! (link on the side bar to the left)
