Cheating on my yarn

Being snowed in brings out the creative in me.  Too bad the bored kids squelch that creative every chance they get.   But finally, on day 3 of the GREAT SNOW IN of 2011, I ordered my husband in charge of the sledding adventures and I sat down in front of my dusty old sewing machine, a sad neglected old girl since I discovered crochet. While sewing is my first love, I just can't beat crochet for being able to pick it up and put it down 100 times a day while also taking care of kids, house, school, etc.   Sewing requires more of a...committment. 

But while I trudged into day 6 of a crocheted American Girl dress, I realized that sewing definitely had some advantages of its own.   Add in the fact that I am way to cheap to spend the money on AG clothes for the doll and my was time to sew.

So here we have a $0.99 McCall's pattern + stash fabric + $2 Tshirt from Joann's for my daughter = Matchy Matchy Pj's and a super happy 5 yr old!

And just for good measure, here's my younger with her AG doll.  I got this matchy set deeply discounted on Cyber Monday and still paid probably $30 for both.
