But I can make a sweet pair of sweatpants with cool polka dot pockets.
My sweet Georgia girl took a tumble in the playground at school on Wednesday. I think you can tell what she landed on! We spent the afternoon in the emergency department followed by a trip to the dentist (she broke off a third of one of those perfect front teeth). Thankfully, aside from her tooth, nothing appears to be broken. She has been so brave - there has only been the occasional tear - the teachers and school nurse couldn't believe she didn't cry or get upset when it happened.
Feeling pretty useless I ended up in my sewing room. If I couldn't make her better I could at least make her smile. I pulled out some bright coral coloured fleece and some aqua polka dot fabric and whipped up the Saija sweatpants from the 1/2009 Ottobre Kids magazine. I left them next to her bed with a little note so that she would see them when she woke up this morning
She was so happy when she saw them and thankfully everything seems to be healing up nicely, although her face does get more colourful by the day!
