When laundry piles up…

It's been one of those weeks. Between the girls being sick and me not feeling well, the house has suffered. Please don't stop by unannounced. I'll need at least 5 hours to prep. 

The girls were running a little low on underwear so, naturally, I avoided doing laundry by making them some. I love them. They are so cute. And super cute on. Don't you think?

IMG_4112It's probably obvious, but I don't put pictures of my actual children in their underwear online (because Google is forever). So you'll have to just check out penguin in his new skivies. I used a pattern in one of my Japanese sewing books. I love them, by the way. The Japanese books that is. They were intimidating at first but the good ones have such great photo instructions that you don't really miss much if you can't read Japanese. They aren't for beginners but if you know your way around a machine I say go for it. I finished the edges with fold over elastic. Super easy. Way easier than doing a load of laundry, drying it and folding it. Or maybe that's just me…

And while I was uploading this picture to my computer I discovered this one on the camera.

P.S. My birthday is next week.

    Ok, the fact that you can make undies is amazing. I am stuck trying to thread the bobbin on my machine ( I had grand hopes of following along w/your instructions…now I am putting it off until summer) But back to the undies, great job and you can put off the laundry a little bit longer.Win,win :)
