It's nice to have a big fabric stash ...........

................. because then you don't have to run out and look for just the right fabric when you need a bit of an accent.
Case in point:
Big Butt Baby Pants - pattern by Made by Rae (http://www.made-by-rae.com/2010/08/big-butt-baby-pants-sewing-pattern/).
I bought the flannel shortly after I found out my daughter was pregnant and finally, finally (the baby is due at the end of this month) got around to sewing yesterday. While the flannel is pretty and delicate, it needed to be enhanced with a bit more color. So, off I went to my studio and sorted through my stash and came up with plenty of choices.

I especially like the mouse fabric. That's been in my stash for ages.
I sure hope mom and baby like what I've made.
I'm linking this post to Randi's show and tell post on her blog: i have to say (http://ihavetosay.typepad.com/randi/2013/03/show.html). And I sure hope I've done it correctly because this is the first time I've done this.

I bet they're even cuter on a baby's bottom! Congrats on having a special bundle very soon. Sewing for babies is so much fun!

Visiting from Show & Tell. Happy Tuesday!
