Adventures in baby sitting

Since I have extra small people this summer (not just my own) I thought I would post about that for a while. Last Week I learned that no matter how you try children will drive you crazy and get dirty. I was forever washing the girls clothes so that they wouldn't go home in a mess then I had the brilliant idea of making some "play clothes"

They are just Pillow case dresses using a pattern I found out there on the internet. Really the patterns are all the same so it doesn't matter which one you use. But I liked these the best:

It took maybe an Hour to do all three dresses, and once the girls had them they wouldn't take them off!! They loved them! They were comfortable, cool and most importantly clean when it was time to go home. I think I'm going to make a dozen or so more, I have some vintage pillow cases that would make great nightgowns.

Sorry its been so long since the last post. It's really because I haven't done a whole lot in the last couple of weeks. I've had kids for the summer and they take up a lot of my day. (all of it to be exact!) But I have been working on two craftster swaps and those will be going out today and tomorrow as soon as I find a box that has not been turned into a doll bed or robot office.
