I'm glad I'd made it before since I started stitching the outfit the night before the party: put the kids in bed and started interfacing. 4 frenetic hours later I had an outfit, minus the shirt buttons. I've never timed a project before. If I paid myself $10 an hour, that'd be more than $40 for the outfit. Plus the 2 bibs I dug out of my bib stash. Do you ever do a labor calculation on the things you make? [Truly, I do it only because I enjoy it. In this case, the project was a known entity within my skill set, so in my mind it still qualified as "hobbying", not a stressful item to cross off my to-do list.]
It was funny. As the mom-to-be opened the gift, everyone exclaimed about the bibs. "Did you make those?!? Wow!?!" Nobody said anything about the outfit, hehe.
