LOL Magical Girl. Yes, I do. Smiley I also do swaps. Unfortunately things like this are truly one of a kind and occur only occasionally so there will never be another like this one. One of a kind for my one of a kind little pumpkin. Cheesy

My personal favorite. Smiley

I picked up this adorable cotton knit sweater (with stripes!!!) at the thrift store a few weeks ago with it in my mind to make a pair of pants OR a shirt for my daughter from it. As I sat down to cut it today I realized I had enough there to make not only a pair of pants but a shirt as well if I paired it with an old polo I had in my recon pile. (Sorry I do not have before pictures, I usually don't remember them until after the fact.)

After some (not so) careful cutting (I admit, I hacked it to pieces) and creativity I came up with this: pants, shirt and stocking style cap. There is about 4 inches to spare on the length of both the sleeves and the pants, so I *hope* it will fit through this winter. The pants have a yoga style waistband for comfort (waistband made from the polo) and were made mostly from the sleeves of the sweater and a small piece to make up the seat of the pants. The strategically placed pockets on the shirt are to cover up the old stains on the polo where I surely spilled something awful (and for coolness of course!)  The hat was just the leftovers from the sweater after everything else was finished.



I don't think I have seen her this pleased with something in a while. She has not taken it off all afternoon, in spite of the fact that it is still warm enough that we have the windows open! DH tried to take the hat off of her so she wouldn't overheat and she squawked at him and ran to me so I could put it back on her. She is seriously in love with this outfit.... and I have to admit, I am wishing I had one for myself... Wink

OK, let me just say that you are WAYYYYYY too hard on yourself for this. You did a great job! I have been quilting off and on for over 5 years now and I know SEASONED quilters that can't do any better. That quilt looks awesome, I LOOOOOVE the owls and I think your son more than forgives you for it.  Trust me when I say that it is the *least likely* projects that the kids adore the most. The things I have hated to give to my kids because I thought they were way too crappy were the very thing they loved the most. Chin up, you did fabulous!! Cheesy

Long story short... your DH is crazy. Smiley Seriously, that apron is friggin' adorable!!  I clicked on it because I thought it was cute and I would wear it in an instant!! Though if you are dead set on swapping it I would love to be the VERY happy recipient and would struggle mightily to find something suitable to swap for it! Wink
