Sewing for Nehemiah

Yep... I've been sewing for Nehemiah. It took about an hour to whip up these four pairs of pants for him. I love sewing!

He has this adorable shirt but no pants to match... that was the beginning of my sewing today. See how cute!!
And these denim ones are my favorite because they have a story. I love a good story. One day I was in Goodwill looking around because it was half-price day :-). I never go on the curtain/bedspread row because, well, I never need things like that. But, for some reason, this particular day I stumbled upon that row. Lo and behold what did I find? Denim Curtains! Whoda thunk? There were actually three sets of floor-length denim curtains, Martha Stewart and Ralph Lauren brands. Do you realize how much fabric is in curtains? -faint- Lots and lots and lots. And they were $7 a pair! Woohooo!!!! So I used the factory hem for the hem of the pants (how easy~peasy is that?!) and for the pockets!

I'm so glad you explained the jeans. I saw that and said to myself. "Self -- she sewed those in 1 HOUR!?!" Wowza...

Neat deal! Ü Good for YOU!
