Finally! Some sewing and the dog's coat

So I finally had some quiet time yesterday between kids and errands and got some sewing done!

Well, no actual sewing yesterday but I got C's pyjamas totally cut out and ready for the serger. What a relief to actually get this started. I so don't want to be sewing the day of Christmas Eve. Not that I've ever done that! oh no, never! ;-)

So first, here's a pic of the pattern. I used it last year too and it still fits. That will help it go together quickly.

The pants are long but C says she likes them that way so I didn't shorten them.
Here's the material we picked out a while ago. It was long before the Christmas season so I think it was from last year. I like it anyway though. Especially since it was on sale! LOL

Yesterday Fabricland had one of their usual sales on so I went to get some stuff and see if I could find buttons. Here's what I found.
C really liked them. I'm not sure if you can see it in the picture but they're very "warm" feeling with a bit of sparkle. Nice.

 Of course I"m not just working on one set of pj's but two so here's a pic of the material for number 2.

 Also bought at Fabricland and of course on sale. What can I say? I'm a single mom and I'm Scottish. Not "on sale" is very rare around our house!

It's not a very nice day weather wise today but being the weekend and blah leads to another picture; Scooby in his coat.

Isn't he cute?!?!?

I can see by looking at in the picture that part of the problem is that his thick neck has made the belly band sit a bit farther back than it should. I shall have to re-draft the pattern a bit to fix that. It's also not quite long enough in the body. It looks like it should be in the picture, but it's not trust me.

Well that's it for today. I have to make dinner soon and then maybe some more work on pj's? Let's hope so!

    Wishing you a beautiful & immensely happy month of December!
