Treasures on Tuesday: Snowman Holiday Wreaths

I love holiday wreaths!  They are the crown on a well dressed holiday home, making a house not only festive, but inviting.  Whether they are simple, sophisticated or whimsical they will put a smile on the face of any holiday visitor.  I have found so many beautiful, fun and interesting wreaths online that I will present a different group of wreaths each Tuesday leading up to Christmas!

Jazzy Play Pants

 Avery LOVES music, so when I saw this print, I couldn't resist.
But, then after I got it home, I couldn't figure out what to do with it.
Finally, I decided on these 3/4 length Jazzy Play Pants.
I adapted a single piece pants pattern to his size and stitched these right up.
I made the waist band flat in front with elastic around the back
and put elastic around the leg openings.
The pocket is trimmed in red knit.
His accessories include rockin' converse sneaks, a swingin' guitar sweater (a birthday gift from our super-sitter Annie!), uber-hip red shades, not one, but two colorful band-aids, and a dirty face that screams "my life is one big party!"
Avery has left the playground...Peace.
