Not A Handmade Christmas

I had grand plans to make Ben something for Christmas, namely: A pair of corduroy overalls with a soft flannel lining. He’d look pretty natty, no? Besides, I wanted him to have something that was made by his mama especially for him.

But this little idea never made it past the pinterest stage:

It was partly because Christmas crept up on me, but if we’re being honest, it was mostly because I’m a little intimidated by the thought of making an actual garment: selecting a pattern, cutting the fabric, and sewing along the dotted line. Eek.

I have readjusted my goals accordingly: It’s now a birthday present. Which gives me a month. Wish me luck!
