Sewin' and stylin'!

So, Ashley got this cute sewing machine for Christmas this last year. Well, today was the first time she got to use it! Can you believe that? It's been over 6 months, and I'm just now letting her figure it out. Great mom huh'.
Anyway, she found this great book at the library last week on how to sew some simple projects. Ever since, she's been itching to make this little swim suit cover up.

Here she is working away on it.

And here's the finished product. Cute huh'. I think she did a great job.
Of course, Haley wanted to try her hand at it too.
I let her sew a little pouch for Ashley's glasses.
Here's the complete ensemble'!!

On a side note, both my little guys were fussy babies all day.
Guess who's getting more teeth?

He was miserable most of the day. Jason was too, he was running a low grade fever. He's been teething for the last little bit, but I couldn't see any new teeth coming in. I hope it's not the beginning of something nasty. Jon's had a little summer cold the last couple of days--I hope he hasn't passed it along.

She did such a good job! Sorry the boys have been fussy, that's really no fun. Hopefully it passes fast whatever it is.

and Way to go Justin for growin more teeth! Pretty soon you will be eating Steaks with the big boys! Hopefully he is not sick...and it is just the teeth.

Wow, the girls did a great job on their sewing projects. I still can't sew to save my life. I always have a huge pile of mending for my mom to do everytime she comes in town!
