Random Project: Pajamas & Seat Cushion Cover

It's almost the end of November. I am surprise I don't see snow on the ground yet! It's getting colder everyday though. So since I can't take my daughter to the park for a walk, I decided to do some little stuff around the house just to keep myself busy or else I'm gonna go cray cray with this ugly weather! Today I made a matching pajamas for me and my lil girl. I found this fabric at Walmart for only $1.50/yard (used 2 yard for both pajamas).

I also changed the cushion cover for our chair using the remaining fabric from my table runner project.


I am glad my day is quite productive. Now it's time to play with my lil stinker then later I am making a carrot cake for the first time. Wish me luck! :D

Table Runner

I have been wanting to make a table runner but I couldn't find a nice print and inexpensive fabric for this project. Yes I always look for inexpensive fabric so that I won't have to worry about making a mistake :D Anyway, I found this floral black and white fabric at Walmart for $6/yard (I used 1 yard). All I did is stitch around the hem and that's it. Why spend $20 for a table runner if you can make it for only $6! :D

Pencil Skirt

It's been awhile I haven't played with my sewing machine. Good thing my husband and I dropped by at the fabric store and I found this basic dress pattern and they are on sale and I thought would be a simple project to practice. Unfortunately, I bought a fabric from remnant section (because they are 50% off) and it wasn't big enough to make a dress. So I ended up making only the skirt part of the pattern. This is also the first time I made something with zipper.
