More Super Stuff and Scooby doo

On a serious time crunch and not so great of a sewing morning yesterday I finished up some 'super' shirts. I really don't have much of anytime to do much during the week (Monday-Thursday) seeing as though I leave the house around 7am and don't get back home till about 6:30 in the evening. Don't get me wrong I like my jobs right now and I am very thankful for them, yet they don't leave me with much time for sewing or even doing stuff around the house. I often find myself at Walmart at 7am picking up a few things before work so I don't have to do it after work. Which then brings me to Friday mornings....time to sew and do all of those domestic house duties. I still had to work in the afternoon yesterday (helping out at good ole Child Care) so I really only had a couple of hours and I had to have the two super shirts done since the party was today. I bought some new bobbins for my sewing machine and they turned out to be too small. I tried to use them anyways, but it didn't work out so well, neither did running out of red thread! With some improvisation, I managed to get the shirts done and I can't wait to see pictures, which is the best part!
After making the 'Super Auntie' shirt and the onesie, more super people wanted a shirt for the super hero party of my friend Julie's nephews (which is taking place today, I've already put in a request for some pictures). The birthday boys grandma or 'Mimi' wanted a 'Super Mimi' shirt, which I made similar to the 'Super Aunite' shirt.

I couldn't let me lovely, prego friend Julie attend this super party without a super shirt too. So I made her a 'super baby' shirt with an arrow pointing to her belly. She is only about 11 weeks pregnant so there is not much of a belly to point too. She also doesn't know if it is a boy or girl yet so I was sure to make the word 'baby' in blue and pink, the rest of the shirt is pink and zebra so she matched her 'super' daughter Aubree at the party!

As promised to have pictures (high quality from my blackberry *wink*wink*) of the Scooby Doo themed birthday party outfits made for a friend's three kiddos.
When I say Scoody Doo themed it was more like tie-dye and peace sign themed. I didn't find any classic tie-dye rainbow colored material but I didnt find a blue, pink and yellow peace-sign tie-dye for the girl's shirts and a blue and peace-sign material for the lil' guys shirt. I made the girl matching tutus too! I decided to add "Peace, Love (a heart) and Birthday Cake" to the back of the shirts because I thought it would make a cute photo-op! I actually already got to see the girls try on their tutus and they fit perfect and looked so cute.

I have some more things to make today and an order to ship out too. Maybe I can even come back with some fun reports on things other than Little Yellow Sew Shop business after the weekend is over!
