Having Nate home for 3 days is so nice!
I was able to fit in some sewing time yesterday, and made four pair of little pants:
It was raining this morning when I took the pics, so they’re really moody. Moody little yoga pants! These are from the “Crescent Moon Yoga Pants” pattern written by Samantha of Little Comet Tails. I’ve tested some of her patterns before, and I really like them! I used her diaper pattern for the last 2 batches of Mazie’s dipes. They’re trim, fit well, and use up fewer snaps than some of the other patterns I’ve tried. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.
These little pants are great because they have a gusset on the back, so that they fit over big cloth-diapered bottoms. In “regular” clothes, I have to buy several sizes up in order to accommodate the diaper, so the waists are too big and the legs are too long. These, I can make in her weight range and the waist fits. And because I’m sewing them myself, I just hem them to her inseam.
(I had to wear that tee shirt because I couldn’t find my most recent swimsuit and had to use one from several years ago. Ob-SCENE!) There were some kids in the class that were a lot older than Mazie, so they were doing things like jumping off the edge to the parents, floating on their own, etc. We were focusing on trying to get her used to the water, letting her put her face in, seeing if she’d kick. Little things like that. It was fun, and a great way to start of the weekend. It was really nice to wake up and all get ready for a “Family Activity.” The weather is great for indoor swimming, too. Kind of gray and rainy. So we felt really cozy afterward.
We’re still waiting for her second bottom tooth to come in. We were up most of the night last night, until at least 4 am. Poor baby!
