No More Sewing Tonight! :( But I Have Tutorials! :)

SIGH..... SIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHH............ My light bulb went out in my sewing machine and it isn't bright enough in the dining room to sew at night. SIGH........... c2 is going to be so mad at me!! He
demandedsuggested that I make his Green Lantern PJs tonight. I got the pants done! :)

Then I somehow misplaced part of the front of the shirt. Not sure how that happens. I *think* it was the "left over" part I thought I had and then cut up to use as cuffs on the sleeves.... Yeah... If I had a brain I just might be dangerous! LOL  Anyway, I am using some of the green that I used on the May Flowers skirt for the other side of the front. I am going to attempt to cut out and sew some of the Green Lantern pieces to the solid green.... I'm ummmm...hopeful? LOL

Can I just say that I am DYING to get started on some of the vintage patterns I bought yesterday??? I already know exactly which one I will do first and what material I am going to use. LOL I may have to get it out of my system before I do my last skirt for the Crafterhour's Skirt Week contest.

Since I can't make anything NEW tonight I guess I can post some pics of past projects! LOL

I LOVE this one! This was made from a thrifted vintage sheet. My mom had one just like it when I was little. That made it extra special to me.

I knew I wanted to make something with a vintage feel to it and I was inspired somewhat by this dress by Olive Juice 

Oooh!! Here are my owl PJs! So soft and comfy!! PJ pants are a great pace to start if you are new to sewing. They are simple to make.

Here's a tutorial for making them - Simple Pajama Pants Tutorial -  You can adapt to make them adult size.

Here is c1 in an Easter Toile print that I got for a STEAL at Joann's.

I used the same idea for style as the nightgown from a vintage sheet. ;)

Here's a tutorial for it - Pillowcase Nightgowns & Free Tutorial.

c2's dino PJs

I made the shorts the same way that I make PJ pants. For the top I used one of c2's t-shirts as a guide.

Well, that's it for tonight, folks.... I think I might go add some more to my About Me section!
