Loving Riley Blake Designs!

As much as I love to sew, I am horrible at making any type of clothing, nothing ever fits right and I have a terrible time trying to alter the pattern. But when I saw this darling Riley Blake fabric out at my favorite fabric store, Hannah Johnson's. I knew I had to attempt flannel pants for me and the little boys. 
I had a pattern in my Amy butler "in stitches" book for me, and I bought a Kwik sew pattern for the boys.
I must say, it wasn't too bad, and they all fit!! 


I had to get this darling holiday print for me and Zach and the cute little dinosaurs for Nicholas. 
They are very comfy, and I think the boys may live in them all week long!! 

Now here is a sneak peak at my Christmas break project. We are painting and redecorating Zachs room and he picked out the fabric below for his bedding and curtains, the kid has good taste, it too is by Riley Blake, and fits the theme of his new room. Here is the front of the comforter I am making. This part is done, now to add the batting and back! 

More to come on this room re-do in the next week or so!! 
Now it's time to cozy up in my new flannel pants and watch TV!!

I love the pajamas, I've made myself only one pair so far, you've inspired me to get busy and make some more. Merry Christmas, Mary
