Today is National Sewing Machine Day! Who ever new there was such a grand day? I have been super busy on my sewing machine, making all sorts of clothes for American Girl Dolls. (My sister and four of the little girls I babysit for like to play with them.)
The slippers are so cute and easy to make. I had never sewn shoes before, and was pleased with the results.
The pants and shirt were pretty simple too, and turned out to fit exactly. I did not put the elastic in the pants because they were already pretty tight, and stay up by themselves. I hope they will withstand the years of play ahead of them.
These crepes/ giant pancakes may look and sound weird, but they are a great dinner side dish. They are also quick and easy to make so you can get back to sewing!
