new pants for baby

I feel like I have been working on things so much and not finishing, so I decided to make these pants for the baby. Finishing a project is a good feeling. I actually decided I didn't like the floppiness of the ruffle on these purple pants after I took the picture and ended up cutting some of it off and then sewing a decorative stitch about 1/4" in... going to try the raw edge look and see how it goes. I will post a picture of it after they are washed.

This pair is made from a vintage pillowcase I got at Goodwill and the trim is also vintage... bias tape my mom gave me a while back. I don't even know where she got it or if she just had it forever. I wanted to put some blue bias tape instead but didn't have the right color of thread. There are little side vents at the hem but they don't show up in this picture.

My mother's day gifts are both received now so I'm going to post pictures of those too after I upload them.

Also! I am going to participate in the Sew, Mama, Sew! giveaway on May 27. I will be giving away something made by me, to a random someone. I don't know what it will be yet. Am open to suggestions. Have a good weekend!
