I wanted to post this before the hurricane hits us within this next day and we lose power. It looks like we are directly in Sandy’s path! Today I’m sharing a project that I’ve been working on for a couple of weeks–homemade pajamas for my kids and all the other little ones in my life. Several of my kids have worn theirs already, but the rest are for Christmas presents. You know I love a good practical present, and you can’t get much more practical than a new pair of PJ’s. I love how these turned out and am gladly sharing the tutorial on how I made them.
You can probably already tell from the picture that I did not make the shirts. True, I sewed up the pants and found a cool new (and easier) way to make them. The shirts are bought plain T’s that I appliqued a shape on using fabric leftover from the pants.
Here’s a brief how-to on making the pants. I used fleece for some and flannel for the others.
These were fun to make and actually pretty easy once I got the pants down pat. I loved the fact that you don’t really need a pattern for these and am contemplating making a comfy pair for myself.
