My Thanksgiving Project is DONE!!!

This Thanksgiving I decided to take on a project, really it is a pre-project because the real project I want to do is make curtains for the house. But since I have not sewn since jr high, I thought I would "practice" on something else. I thought making something for the boys would be a good idea, because if I did not do a good job it would be okay and they would love it anyways....

For Christmas I was going to get them robes, and when I was looking around for something to make I saw a pattern to make children's robes. So my project began.

For Thanksgiving we were going to go to my sister's house and have appetizers and pie, but the day before she called and was sick with the stomach flu (she is all better now but it is still in their house- please be praying for them to get better and stay healthy). So after we decided to stay home I took the boys to the fabric store and let them find what they wanted their robes to look like.

It was funny because Cole was having a hard time understanding that what we were looking at mommy was going to make into a robe or rope as he would call them. So this is what they each picked out and how I did. It took me 2.5 days and was a lot of fun. I am ready for another project!






And yes they both need haircuts....
