February...Check!


I finished up my February list yesterday. 
 
 Hooray!

pattern:  Ottobre Design 01/12 #23 "All-Time Favorite Cargo Sweatpants"
size:  122  gasp! When did my babies go from wearing a 104 to a 122???
fabric:  a purchased pair of boy sweatpants
mods:  left off the cargo pockets (lack of fabric), drawstring (lack of time), and added an inch to the length

I hurried to sew the sweatpants as I thought MG might want to wear them to soccer practice last night.  But no, she had a cute pair of pink shorts that she wanted to wear instead.

But she did wear her new black leggings under the pink shorts.;) 
 
I decided not to do a second pair of the sweatpants as the girls have enough pants to last until shorts weather.  And I did make K a pair of black leggings too.  But no pictures!
 
Time to get started on compiling March's sewing to-do list...

  1. Way to set a goal and go for it! I might need to do some more concrete goal setting myself for future projects. There's something about sharing your goals with blogland that makes you more likely to actually accomplish them, I bet.

    And those cargo sweats are the most fashionable cargo sweats I've ever seen!

    1. Thanks! MG is usually happy to model...though she likes to make lots of funny faces during the "photo shoot". Having the list in black and white, instead of in my head, definitely helps me focus!

  7. Nice job! I should use this strategy in March. Since we actually have some "need" sewing to do!

  9. Really cute pants. Congratulations on setting goals and following through. I think setting up a reasonable list is more than half the battle. Whenever I start listing, I get carried away and quickly discouraged.

    1. Thank you! Long lists can weigh a little too heavy if you know what I mean. My March list will be long but hopefully it'll still get accomplished!

  11. I fully believed that you would finish your list! Well done! 122 sounds so tall, they must be really stretching.
