Mother's Day

Grown don't mean nothing to a mother. A child is a child. They get bigger, older, but grown? What's that suppose to mean? In my heart it don't mean a thing. ~Toni Morrison, Beloved, 1987 
I am so happy celebrating Mother's Day today,  honestly what is more heartwarming than talking to my grandgirlies, with their sweet mommies in the background?  Both Mandy and Rachel are wonderful mothers.
Now for my latest project!
I made these little corduroy pants for Miss Mae.  They have a long journey to make in a little box, and I hope they fit her!

Mae is a child after her Bibi's own heart...she likes for her clothes to FEEL GOOD!  The corduroy is soft, the one inch elastic at the waist is not too tight, and the facing on the waistband is a soft cotton with only one little seam. I actually had to add it to get some extra length, but I think it adds a little pizazz to the pants. So lets hope they fit and that she enjoys wearing them.
I made the pants from the updated Charlotte Pattern from the Children's Corner.  I added the ruffle and a little piping, too, so that it would have a little more finished look.  The patch pocket on the back has the same ruffle and piping, with an M in the sugar and spice font.

 Happy Mother's Day girlfriends!
