PJ's for IV and other projects

Here are the PJ's I finished for IV. This was so easy. It is pattern 2826 and I made the size 3 for the top and the size 2 for the bottom. If this fits him, I'll make another pair out of this fabric.

I have enough fabric of each of these to make him a short sleeve pair and short pants as well as another pair next winter! I didn't realize I was buying so much fabric. This fabric came from Joanne's in Orlando that I bought when I was there last time. I'm also working on this Jalie pattern

Out of this knit fabric

that I bought a long time ago from I don't remember. This is my muslin. I'm planning on using my coverpro machine to do the hems, etc. The serger will be used to finish the seams.I'm also working on this pattern for my SIL - Larry for part of his Christmas Present.

I'm making him a pair out of this LSU Tiger cotton fabric as well as a pair for IV, so they will have a matching pair - corny I know, but cute.

That is all I'm working on right now and it is enough to keep me busy for awhile. These LSU Tiger pants come first because I need to get them finished before the 12th of December, that is when I'm heading down to Orlando again and it will be my Christmas visit.

My foot isn't well yet, but it is not too bad. I threw out (donated) all my old shoes and am replacing them with Clarks only. I now have only 7 pairs of shoes and 1 pair of running shoes in my closet. I had over 30 pairs of shoes before I purged them.

I also had a very successful garage sale a few weeks ago. Made over $300. I still have quite a bit that will be taken to Goodwill or the Salvation Army as donations.
