Making your own rib-knit waistband.

I know it's technically Halloween today, but all our costumes are done, so I got started on my Christmas sewing (yay!) by making these soft and comfy pj pants. I've made a bunch of things lately with rib knit waistbands (underwear, a skirt, shorts) so I thought this pattern might be cute with one too.

This is a waistband that I really like because it's cute and comfortable and easy to adapt to almost any skirt or pants pattern that would normally have an elastic casing. If you are worried about it holding the pants or skirt up,
you can still put elastic inside.

Abby in her Tropical Fish Mittens (free pattern)

My sister just texted me a picture of her Abby wearing the tropical fish mittens I made for her two years ago!

I'm so tickled that she's still wearing them, and amazed it's already that cold where they live. I guess I shouldn't be though, it's Idaho ;). I love the way that we keep handmade gifts longer than others. It's just so difficult to get rid of something knowing the person who worked hard making it.

In case you haven't seen it, the Tropical Fish Mitten Pattern is a free download on my website! Check it out!
