mmm '13-week 2 and some birthday napkins

Let's get to business shall we?

I'm going to pretend that I just wore this outfit on Wednesday, but in truth, it may have been worn Tuesday as well, hehe.  Do I get double points for that or does it cancel out?  I can't remember where or what I did this day, ha.  These are the jalie 2920 leggings.

Saturday evening we headed to a friends birthday BBQ.  This is an unblogged jersey maxi skirt I made last year.  It's pretty darn comfy.  And an old gray t-shirt, knotted above the belly.

Last night was chillin and bedtime in my Colette Madeleine bloomers.  For obvious reasons, I'm not ready to share an actual picture of me wearing them :-)  I wore the red with white polka dots one.  The waist is really low on these, so perfect for the big belly.

Saturday's birthday celebration was for a friend that's really into Day of the Dead style.  Last year, when her birthday was drawing close, I found some DOD fabric at Jo-Ann's and thought it be perfect for napkins.  Well, cut to a year later and I still hadn't made them.  That's just how I roll.

This year I got all motivated and got busy (day of the party of course).  I made 6 napkins, cut at 18" square each, folded over 1/2", then folded over another 1/2" and sewn.  I really like how they turned out and the birthday girl loved them!

 

I wanted the perfect mitered corners, which you would think is simple to figure out, but of course, confounded me.  Simple projects get me every time!  But, this is a great tutorial I used to decode corners.  For the most part, mine came out pretty good.




And that is it for my MMM '13 take 2!  Hope everyone had a fantastic week!!

  3. @maider, the bloomers are really comfy! I especially like the flower ones cause I substituted elastic thread for the ribbon at the bottom.

    @gingermakes, ha, thanks for the perfect corners encouragement ;-) they were oddly difficult!
