pajama party!

sometimes things just don’t work out the way i planned. i wanted to join in on the pajama party over at did you make that? so i took a pair of pajama pants i liked, traced them and made a pattern and dove right into my material. i really should have double checked my pattern measurements, because by the time i had my pants to where i could try them on… well things were a bit snug. not unwearable snug, just too snug to be comfy pajama pants. i guess my overconfidence got the best of me on this one…



thankfully not all is lost! i decided not to dwell on it and just cut those suckers up and refashioned them to fit my 7 year old daughter. lucky her! these pj’s have pockets and everything. i used some pink bias tape for the pocket edge.




i’m so bummed they didn’t work out for me, but if you saw how excited she was to come home from school and find a new pair of pj’s… well it made it all okay in my book. i might even use the scraps to make her a matching top. seriously, my kids get all hopped up over things like pj’s and new toothbrushes.

hopefully i can take another stab at pj’s soon because i could really use a few pairs myself! anyways, i’ll be back soon with my finished eclair. i’m just waiting for a semi-warm, non-windy day so i can take some outdoor pics!

    Such cute PJs. I loved sewing for my boys when they were small. Although my older one has just announced that he would like me to make PJs for him. But he is that age when he seems to wear them all the time, including to class!
