Matching brother/sister outfits

Some friends of ours are having a boy so I made a brother/sister match for them to wear this spring. They're in Florida, so they can get away with this kind of thing by March! If you look carefully, you can see that the boys' romper is a cowBOY fabric by Michael Miller and the dress is made with coordinating cowGIRL fabric.

Matching PJ pants

This fabric was purchased after Christmas LAST year... back when the kids are shorter. It was meant to be a pair of pants and a gown, but the kids have grown 1/2 yard and a gown wasn't possible. I like the way the pants turned out, and with a coordinating T-shirt, I think they'll be cute. I added a cuff to the bottom and added piped trim for the boys' pants and rick rack for the girls'.

These are for some friends, who, I'm sorry to say, will wear matching Christmas PJ's for the rest of their life if their mom has her say.

Towel with hoodie and Ribbon trim

I made these for my nieces and nephew. I swiped the idea from Jnet. Very easy to make. Just connect a full-sized towel to a hand towel and add some trim! Very fun with a personal touch! Great for kids with siblings!

Another Pancho

I'm addicted to making these. I'm on my 5th!

The boy turned 5!

The boy turned 5 years old. He wanted a "FORT" cake, so with a little help from a Pillsbury book, we came up with THIS.
