I was busy as a Christmas Elf the Monday and Tuesday before Christmas. I found that I love having Christmas on a Sunday. The week before Christmas is longer than any other year. It gave me enough time to get my own projects done and even offer my sewing services to my neighbor.
I looked over his jacket and decided I could make them for the kids. It is the seamstresses Christmas curse that we spend every last moment sewing.
I was going to use this pattern:
However, they were out of them and so I had to punt. I took a pattern I had and adapted it to kids sizes. Even though it was more work and I had to fit the patterns to the kids; thus giving away a smidgen of the surprise, I think they turned out great.
Here they are all hanging in a row waiting for me to wrap them. It didn't take long. I was so very excited to get them under the tree.
