Insta-Friday.

 Remember these?
They didn't sell at our garage sale.
I have no idea why.
(The nineties called and wants it's ridiculousness back.)

The cutest Christmas fabric in the history of Christmas.
(Found at Joann's.  Buy it online here.)
I can't even handle the cuteness.  Now what to make...
My first thought was pj pants for the girlies, but they grow so so so fast.
I want it to last and last and last.
Pillow cases?
Pennants?
Ideas please.
Therapy at Homegoods and Home Depot.
It was a good day.

We love rain around here.  I have brainwashed the girls to love my favorite weather just as much as I love it.  Cute boots and cute umbrellas help of course.

 But this little rainstorm has been stressful!
It cannot rain this weekend.
It simply CANNOT!!!!
Because this is happening....
and it is going to be rad.  Rad and not raining.
Crazy excited.

Even on the hardest days....
this whole raising a human thing...
it is always worth it.
Always.

ALWAYS.

  1. OH MY GRACIOUS GOODNESS! If it werent 6 am right now Id be hoppin in the car and making the half hour drive to Joanns to buy them out of that fabric! Are you kidding me?! Its perfection with a capital P!
    How about nightgowns(they can be made longer so they last more years). But I love the idea of pillowcases or pennants too. Heck, make it all!
    Thanks for sharing. I WILL be stopping in there today.
    Have a wonderful weekend!
    (P.S)I have not forgotten about what I wanted to send you. Its been on my nightstand for weeks{picture me hanging my head in shame over here:(}

  2. I've made bags for Christmas to use instead of wrapping paper. It helps coordinate everything too! I wish we had a Joanns here in Australia! x

  3. I'm with 'Handbags*N*Pigtails', that's the cutest Christmas fabric! And I was just at JoAnns yesterday! Dang. I see pillow cases. Cute Christmasy pillowcases. (Although the idea of nightgowns is super cute too) And to go along with 'Selina', I have made large drawstring totes for each member of my family. We all have one and it holds our Christmas pjs that we open on Christmas Eve before bed. (we say the elves leave us something special while we are at church to help us go to sleep while we wait for Santa to come that night) So, maybe lots of pj totes for everyone!? :)

  5. Pillowcases! My mom made pillowcases for us when we were little and we still have them today.

    I would also cut each one out, back it with coordinating felt or fabric and make manger scene figurines. Stick them in a basket under the tree and the kids will play with them instead of the tree:)

  9. Obviously the fabric is a BIG hit! And since my Joann's is about the size of an outhouse and has like only 3 fabrics, I've got to go online. We need details here...what's the line and designer?

  14. I love that fabric. Here's my vote: In the wintertime my mom would make rice sacks out of Christmas fabric. It's the same concept as this idea http://familyoffarmers.blogspot.com/2010/08/baby-belly-bag-tutorial.html but a little bit larger. You could scent the rice with peppermint or something yummy. We would place the bags in a basket in the living room and heat them up at night to snuggle with while watching a movie or to place by our feet while lying in bed. I still have one of mine from childhood. It's also a fun project to involve the kiddos.
    Can't wait to see what you do!

  15. Couple of ideas for that darling fabric... you could fussy cut the little people and applique them onto an advent calendar! Or how about stockings? Or holiday "throws"? It's darling and I'll have to see if I can find some at my local Joanns.
