that’s what little boys are made of

Y’all are way too sweet to me about the red jumpers, I appreciate it! How could I send those to the girls and not do something for Grayson. I found a piece of flannel in my fabric pile and thought pajama pants might work for him.

These were really easy to do…..still crossing my fingers that they’ll fit since I’m doing the long distance sewing thing again.

My DIL had asked me to make some burp cloths for a friend of hers that just had a baby, a boy! I got these all finished to send off to Texas.

Now I think my daughter wants me to make some for her, maybe I can wait until after Christmas to do them! I’m feeling pretty good about the sewing so far but not so good about the shopping. Will try to remedy that today or tomorrow, hubby has a funeral to attend and I’ll be trying to finish up all the shopping.

And one more piece of news; we found out last week that the new baby in the family will be………..
a BOY! Fun! We’re all excited, and I might get to make some more boy things after the first of the year.

    Oh, those pj pants are so cute! (Love that fabric!) And look at you, matching your plaids and all (something I never bothered to do). My parents and brother always spend Christmas with us. A few years back, I made everyone (the three kids, my husband, parents, and brother) all pjs to open Christmas eve. One year of that was enough though…now just the kids get them. (And this year, I didn’t even make them…bad Mommy!)

    Congratulations on another sweet little baby boy to be joining your family soon!

    That is great that your new grandson will have a cousin close to his age … another boy to share those puppy dog’s tails with.

    Those pj pants are great! My boys live in those things around the house. I never thought of making them though.

    Thanks for the inspiration.

    I am so jealous…I wish I had just a little of your skills. You are so good and creative!

    Ooh, those are cute! I might get you to find me a piece of fabric in your pile and make me a pair, hehehe! The cloths are cute too. I know you’ll be making a bunch of boy stuff for the new little one next spring. 🙂

    I love the colors in those pants! I wouldn’t mind having some made out of that. 😉

    Congratulations on the new boy! I happen to think little boy babies are just fantastic — I know you’re going to enjoy this one!

    Hey Gail…long time so see (virtually, of course). Your sewing projects are amazing. I have absolutely no talent when it comes to sewing. My first, last, and only attempt at hemming ended with the lady at the alteration place making me promise to never try again before she would fix my mess!

  13. Stacy (the other one) Says:

    Again…TOO CUTE! I’m all about PJ pants and couldn’t wait to get home to put mine on today. Those burp cloths are cute too. The Diego one is my favorite. I just love those colors together.

  14. Sandra Says:

    These are wonderful Gail, I love the PJ pants and the burp cloths are just too sweet for words 😉

    How cute! I love the pj pants–you did a wonderful job! And, if they don’t fit, hopefully they are too big so he can grow into them.
