Who wears the pants in the family?

September 30th, 2011

My Christmas tree wears the pants, and I make the excuses. So this year, the Year of No Excuses (ok, the Month of No Excuses)… I’m ahead of the holiday crafting, sewing and gift making time (that usually falls on December 26th for me), thanks to Sew,Mama,Sew!… this year it’s gonna happen in October. Oct. To. Ber.
Sew,Mama,Sew! Holiday Sew-Along

I’ll be participating in the SMS Holiday Sew-Along with my Christmas Tree Pants (because not all trees like to wear skirts) project. If you’d like to follow along with me, you can get all the info about the SMS Holiday Sew-Along here and see who else you can sew along with. Sew,Mama,Sew! has made a Christmas Tree Pants Sew-Along flickr group if you’d like to join that, too.
Christmas Tree Pant

I’ll be making my red & white Christmas Tree Pants, as well as making a scrappy version.

Come sew with me - friends don’t let friends have trees without pants.
