I did make one mistake. I accidentally sewed one of the bottom legs on upside down. I wondered why there weren't any notches to match up when I attached the bottom to the top. So if you look really closely you can see that the two knees don't quite match up but it's not noticeable enough for me to even come close to unpicking and starting over! They are still functional and my daughter loves them.

One small thing leads to another
Today I was fully intending to get some quilt blocks done. So far I have not done any of the sewing on my own machine, but at my friends house, so when I went to sew them I had to find the right color thread. I couldn't find the blue I was looking for with the rest of my thread so I had to do the dreaded search in my messy sewing closet. Well, that lead to pulling everything out and that lead to reorganizing my closet and that lead to finding a cut out pants pattern that needed to be completed. Maybe some of you remember awhile back when I sewed a couple pairs of pants from Simplicity 2627. Well, I had another pair completely cut out and still pinned to the pattern that I had burned out on before completing. I finished them today! I didn't get any work done on the quilt, but I got rid of some clutter and my daughter has one more pair of pants and that's good enough for me.
