. . . for Lauren and Lauren: More weekend please

March 4, 2012

More weekend please

I'm always sad when Sunday night rolls around and I gear up for another week. 
Luckily I had another nice weekend, filled with a Friday night home with Chris, a baby shower Saturday, dinner  with my family for my dad's birthday, and some time with my future sister in law.  

Here's what I wore to the baby shower on Saturday: 
This is the first time I've tied my shirt like this, unless you count when I was eight years old. 
I am still undecided if it is a little too eighties or not.   

 shirt: Old Navy  dress: Kohls   boots: dsw  socks: American Eagle

I should probably add what I wore to school on Friday. 
What? You don't celebrate Dr. Seuss' birthday at your work? 


And I had multiple students tell me there is no thing 3.  
Yes there is when thing 1 and thing 2 are already taken.  

Lauren in law brought home this old sweater that she wanted me to make some leggings and scarf out of. 
I've wanted to try that for awhile but didn't have the right kind of old sweater to use. 
It was super easy and took less than 20 minutes altogether.  

She gave me these pieces:
the arms cut off and the bottom half of the sweater


First I made the leggings by cutting off the extra fabric on the arms and pinning the top part down. 


Then I sewed the top on both of them. 


I did the same thing with the bottom half of the scarf.  
Pinned and sewed. 


And that is it!
A new pair of leggings and scarf for Lauren. 
Of course, first I took a few pictures of them. 
You know, just to make sure they look right. : ) 





Hope you had a wonderful weekend!
