It was another bust of a weekend. It’s like we’re never going to get out of this flu season alive. I’m sure we will, I’m just having a hard time seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.
Felix is now sick, which put a stop to all of his birthday festivities that I had planned. I’m hoping we can celebrate at some point this week. At least Felix is at an age where he has no idea when his birthday is – let alone the day of the week – so he’s not disappointed one bit.
I found this sweet fabric at Fashion Fabrics Club and got so excited to make a little dress for Penelope. I thought it would’ve been a regular tshirt knit (like it was described), but I should have taken better notice of the fiber content. It’s not really suitable for blouses, it’s more suitable for activewear. It’s like a swim suit fabric. Disappointing, yes. But, the fabric also reminded me of my favorite dance pants in high school, so I made lemonade and whipped up leggings for Penelope. They’re shiny, so it kinda goes with the whole liquid legs fad. Right? I don’t care. They’re super cute.
I told Penelope to show her dad her new leggings and she said, “Mommy, no – these are not pants, they’re leggings. I need to go put my pants on.”
Well, now I see where she stands on the whole are leggings pants thing. She’s still wearing them, though.
Not really wanting to participate for the photo shoot, I bribed her with her phone. I’m such a good mom, letting her watch her phone all day.
I used a pair of old leggings for the fit of these, but I had to alter the pants a lot afterwards. I’m going to start from scratch for her next pair. For how to make baby leggings (9-12 mo pattern included) click here. For mama leggings, click here.
