I also finally finished this order and got it to my friend!
The bloomers with the band are courtesy of a super talented girl which I found through Made by Rae. I loved the look of the banded legs and wanted to try it. Her tutorial is for a newborn size and I needed a 9-12 mo size, so I used my favorite bloomer pattern and added the bands. It came out a little bigger than what I wanted, so I tried again using a 6 mo bloomer size. Still a little big, but definitely better than the first attempt.
So that is it for now! I will be finishing up the banner for my 100th post winner Nicole now that my serger is back up and running and hope my embroidery machine will do well enough until I bring it in Tuesday! I have a TON of things on my LIST of to do, so I will be checking in from time to time. But there is SO MUCH going on in the sewing world with the holidays coming up!! Sew Mama Sew is hosting another fabulous Giveaway Day, but I think I will sit this one out. I so enjoyed meeting everyone who visited, but didn't get hardly any time to visit any myself. SO I will be GREEDY and try my luck at winning....and you should too! :) Also, the sweet girls at Wee Folk Art will be compiling an AWESOME list of bloggers who have Etsy stores so I encourage you to check them out and get the word out to BUY HANDMADE this holiday season!!

The weekend was filled with fun, we went to Movies in the Parc and watched The Wizard of Oz under the stars. And today, I finally took down the summer gels that were stuck on my back windows and let the kids go wild....
