Going Pro!

Well, sort of. I just finished my first sewing project for profit! Elyette's sunbeam teacher, Katie Merrick, ask me if I'd make these baby sleep sacks for her to give to a friend that is having twin boys. I've seen "sleep sacks" but I really like this version. Its terry cloth on the outside and linned with flannel (cozy), so its not roasting hot and perfect for this area all year or fall/spring elsewhere.  And it has a separating zipper that is in upside down to make for easy diaper changing. I'm totally making some more of these (for myself and I can think a few babies coming soon that might like one). Anyone wants one :)? Anyway, THANKS SO MUCH to Katie for giving me the oppurtunity. I really had fun.

Those look so cozy! Did you just make up your own pattern by looking at the picture?!!!

Yeah, I just made it up (it for sure has lots of room for improvement), but I did use a pair of Jack's footsie pajamas to make sure I was doing go good width/length and stuff for a baby.

Too cute Maegan! The look great! Did you also make Elyette's dress she's wearing in the background? It also looks really cute.

You need to open your own Etsy.com shop and sell all the things you've made!

That is so creative! I'm trying to break back into sewing - I was actually pretty good when I was 12 (due to 4-H) but now I'm having trouble remembering how to thread a bobbin!

You're already pro, you've always been pro. I'm jealous of your awesome-ness.

You going to post a tutorial?
