finished green monster
I finally finished the quilt. It did fit my bed when I finished with alittle drape even. I did forget the shrinking aspect. I am happier with the quilt now that it's been washed and dried. It's nice and crinkly, but still soft 80/20 batting.
I enjoyed the whole zipping the flannel through the machine and being done! I think it took an hour to make 4 pairs of pants. I used Simplicity 2742. I've used this pattern for the last two years. It's very easy. I did not make pockets on these pants cause they wear them to bed so it was even faster!. I was able to get two pairs for 2 boys for only 4 yards of fabric...(that was on sale for 2.99/yard at Hancock's (score)).
Next week I plan to start buying the batting and backing for the boy's quilts...plus i need to start my Christmas sewing projects...i really wish i got paid to sew!!
