Hi y’all!!!  I have been enjoying a WONDERFUL vacation in Colorado the past 9 days – I cannot tell you how much more comfortable life on a mountain is compared to life on the sun!  We all had a fabulous time.  I even managed to enjoy myself WITHOUT my sewing machine.  weird & shocking, but true!

However, I was JONESING!!!  So tonight, in true me fashion, I had to make something uber quick to satisfy the sewing withdrawal symptoms.  I chose to make something for Owen.  Yes, you read that right.  Something for Owen.

While Owen is only 5, I can assure you he has very particular demands taste when it comes to his clothes.  Nothing itchy, nothing bulky, nothing sleeves, you get the point.  Even his choices for fabric prints are very particular.  This is why you almost never see anything on this blog made for him.  In his mind, he has good taste.  In my mind he’s boring!

Fortunately, last month, while browsing Etsy for fun fabric for a baby shower gift I came across this fabulous print – RV CAMPERS!!!

The only thing better would be if these were food trailers! Amen!?!?

If you’ve never been to Austin, just take my word for it – these are EVERYWHERE HERE!!!  As of tonight, they are even in my home.

Michael Kors might call these "underwhelming" ... but he knew Owen, he'd realize they're perfect! I made these while Owen is asleep, so I chose not to add pockets. I'll ask his permission when he wakes up to put them on, though ... I doubt he'll go for it. Like I said - boring!

Want to know a little secret???

You have to promise not to tell Owen that I made these pajamas from this pattern…

ha! Revenge is sweet - even for a doting mother!!!

These were super easy and super fast and pretty cheap – $6.  ($5 for the fabric and $1 for the pattern)  My only regret is that I didn’t buy a ton more of this fabulous fabric!

Have a great night – see you in a day or two!
