Sewing, Serging, and Baking

So last night I decided to make a dress for Hazel. I stayed up late and followed a pattern from Simple Sewing for Baby: 24 Easy Projects for Newborns to Toddlers by Lotta Jansdotter. I lengthened the dress pattern and wish I had Hazel awake to measure it to her. If I use this pattern again I would enlarge it more in width as well as length. This book is definitely on the baby and young toddler side of sizes. However, I'm happy with the outcome of the dress and Hazel wanted to put it on right away when she saw it. She also loved the pocket buddy and having a pocket.

Of course, I stayed up late finishing it so it would be ready for her this morning and I promised Steve I would get up with her this morning. I don't know what I was thinking, but I certainly did not get enough sleep. Well, we got up around 5:20 and made banana muffins for breakfast. I had three very ripe bananas to use up.
Banana Muffins
1 1/2 c whole wheat flour
1/2 c oat bran
1/4 c flax seed meal
2 t baking powder
1 t cinnamon
1/4 t nutmeg
1/2 T brown sugar (I didn't add this but will next time)
1 egg, beaten
3/4 c non-fat milk
1/2 c applesauce (I used mostly carrot applesauce, but either will work)
3 very ripe bananas pureed

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl and set aside. Mix the rest of the ingredients in a different bowl. Then combine the liquid mixture into the dry mixture and mix well. Spoon into sprayed muffin pans. Bake for about 20 minutes. Should make 12 muffins.

Enjoy your Saturday!
