Sew, what's new?

How are your Christmas preparations going? I've been shopping, sewing, and crafting!
Just wanted to share a sneek peek at one of the projects I've got nearly completed, woo-hoo.

I don't know if any of you remember having a "Pajama keeper" of any kind growing up...but I seem to remember something of the sort. Here's an example from one on Ebay...

It's kind of partly stuffed and an inside pouch with a zipper. The idea is that the kiddo can stuff the pajamas inside in the AM and there's no hunting for them at bedtime.

I can't seem to remember the exact ones from growing up, but here's a vintage cutie that might be similar.

Anyhow, we're getting tired of the PJ's being left on the floor in the bathroom, and this sounds like the perfect fix (and goes with my DS's Star Wars bedroom). I snagged some fleece at JoAnn Fabrics when it was on sale on Black Friday and appliqued to the white fleece background.

Just need to stuff it, whip stitch closed, and keep my DS from looking at the blog...or in the closets, etc!  :)

What's up at your house?

Happy Cyber Monday!

So, if you're not a Black Friday shopper are you a Cyber Monday surfer? I've got to admit, there's something really nice about shopping at home in your PJs instead of shivering in the cold outside. But, in past years I haven't had as good of luck online. You know, when you're BF shopping at the store you have an idea whether you've got a realistic chance of getting the "deal". How many people are there? How many want the same thing? When you're shopping online there's very little feedback (until you click the link and the site crashes on you). Plus, you don't get the fun of people watching and chatting with others about their "plan of attack". Honestly, the interactions are one of the best parts of BF shopping. (I know, I know, my husband just doesn't get it, maybe I'm just weird!)

But, there was one thing I was looking for this Cyber Monday and it doesn't seem to be a quickly expiring deal! Yippee!

Now, I'm not an affiliate or anything, but I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my original Kindle fire (and the prime membership we added after using the trial from the kindle purchase), so I had to share this with you. You can get the Kindle 7 inch today only for $129 (with the special offers) or $144 (without special offers). 
Just make sure to use the code they posted - FIREDEAL - in your shopping cart.

BTW, don't forget to checkout the giveaway in my last post!
