Skinny Weekend

It wasn't a four day weekend, so I didn't get as much as I could get done.

But I finished up a couple of Christmas projects.

I'll go ahead and post them because I don't think they visit my blog (just their mom, my Younger Brother's wife).


I made a pair of Dumplings!

Too cute, right?

I hope my younger niece isn't to adverse to pink. I just really dig that fabric. Even before I was rocking the Quad X chromosomes.

Shouldn't a dumpling be stuffed?

The other one is for my 16 year old niece.

She really digs the band Blink 182. Dr. Mad Scientist used to go to their concerts back before they hit the big-big time (they weren't unknown, but they weren't too mainstream either). He had a couple of concert shirts that had seen way better days* so I cut out the logos/art on them before they hit the scrap heap.


The original pattern called for just ribbons on the zipper pulls, but I have more coordinating beads than I do ribbons.

This was a really easy pattern and if you're new to the realm of zippers, definitely check this pattern out.

Tomorrow I'll post what else I accomplished on my normal 2-day weekend.

*Now that I think about it--Blink 182 released their first album when Dr. Mad Scientist and I were 16--my niece's age. Oof. Yeah, now I feel old!

Those are SO cute! Repurposing a vintage (as opposed to old!) t-shirt makes the Blink 182 one even cooler. And you know I love the pink....

Those look fantastic! I especially love the pink one, of course!

Keyka Lou has the best sewing patterns. I've bought a few from her.
