My Molly is the skinniest thing ever (I was just like her once). The poor thing swims in even slim sized pants and finding pajamas is a royal pain in the bum. So I was the lucky recipient of a sewing machine just after Christmas and decided to whip up some pants. These were really easy to do and I made them with only about one yard of fabric with plenty leftover to make her doll a matching pair. My mom helped me because she used to sew a lot and I haven't sewed in forever. It took us most of the day it seems but it was so much fun to do and I can't wait to get started on the next pair. I bought some clearance flannel today for about $1.50 a yard and well darn you can't even buy pants that cheap! So that is one way in this New Year that I am going to be more frugal making more of our own stuff because even if my time is worth money there is no one I would rather spend that kind of money on than my babies.
