Check out her site and the amazing things she does with her quilting business!!!! The designs she puts on some of these quilts are incredible! Not to mention her Mother's designs are winning contests over at McCalls! These are some amazing women!!

Thanks again for the win! I'll be sure to post as soon as I use my jelly roll! :)

It's amazing, too, that my sister in law won a contest just a few short weeks ago!! It must be our family's lucky year!

I {heart} this site. No really. The fact that this wonderful woman puts these tutorials up for all us other sewers for no charge is just amazing! There are a few other patterns on her sight that she does charge for so I know she's getting some of her hard work paid for.
Dana (I feel like I know her) has so many wonderful (and not to mention super easy to use) tutorials on kids clothing. Basic pants (which I've made here), dresses, sweaters, vests, t-shirts, UGH, just go check her out! She's amazing!

Here's a little about these pants.

My mom brought me this fabric a few months ago. Yes, that's a dachshund on skis wearing a coat and hat printed with cats, you're not hallucinating. She insisted that if anyone knew what to do with it, I did.

I didn't.

That's why it's been a few months.

THEN. It happened.

I finally had a thought.
I know, I love the gut, too.

I was getting my son dressed in the pants I made him from Dana's tutorial
a few weeks ago and thought That's it! Pajama Pants!

The dog fabric is a fleece lined polyester. Think Adidas track suit. From the seventies. In fact, when I was ironing, I could smell my grandmother's house.

Ok, so I used her tutorial, added a drawstring instead of elastic and, voila!

More Grant's pants!!!
