Lots of Projects....So Little Time!

Now that its summer I have a lot more time to do stuff I want to do such as sewing and favorite things to do!  I have had a busy year this past school year.  I've decided to home school my girls who were in 5th and 7th grade.  It was eye opening to say the least and I loved it most of the time!  More on that in another post.
Today I want to show you what I sewed.  My first project of the summer!  I found this really cute pattern for a pair of shorts for summer, for my daughter who really needed shorts. I really wanted to make them instead of buy them, so I tried really hard to make them cheaper than it cost to buy them.  I did find a way to do that.  I found fabric for $2-$4 a yard, which is about what the pattern called for for her size and with the trim and elastic it all came to about $15 for everything not including the pattern which  I found on etsy.  The Etsy shop is called Striped Swallowed Designs.  (I'm not being paid to talk about this shop), I just want to give credit where credit is due.  It's an easy pattern to follow, with full colored pictures and instructions.  I made three pairs of shorts in like 3 or 4 hours, so far....WHAT! I love projects like these! I got enough fabric to make five pairs.  What?! Five pairs of shorts for $15?!  That's like $3 for one pair of shorts!  Can't beat that!  Ha Ha!
Here is Abby in one of her new summer outfits....

  I love the bird fabric!  Less than $4 a yard at Walmart! 
I even cut out one of those cute little birds and sewed it on a 
t-shirt to match!  Tada!

What are some of your projects this summer?
