Guess what you guys? I made something!!! Feels like it’s been ages since I’ve posted a finished object on here…. But today is the day, made just in time to join in with Karen’s Pajama Party!
And oh, I loved making these. They’re made from flannelette (aka brushed cotton), nice and warm and snuggly for the cold weather we’re having at the moment. This stuff’s been in my stash for, oh, around 5 years now, back when I wanted to make some flannelette PJ’s for winter. Yep, five years before that project got to see the light of day.
They were super easy to make. Just like the previous two I’ve made, I simply copied a pair I already own, tracing around the seams where I could and marking them with pins stuck through the PJ pants and the paper where I couldn’t easily trace. Add a 1cm seam allowance, turnings for the waist and bottoms of legs, and you’re done. A basic turned-under waistband with non-roll elastic, add a trapezium of green grosgrain ribbon at the inside of the back waistband to indicate where the back is, and voila – one pair of PJ pants!
Have you ever posed in PJ pants? Something about it just makes you want to mess around, rather than stand normally….
Oh, but that’s not all, folks! I had enough fabric left (just!) to make something else.
Yep, our Little Man has matching trousers! Mwahahahaha!!! (Is it wrong that I find it so amusing to make him things that match mine? I suspect a large part of that is coz he’s a boy and I’m a girl, maybe. Dunno. *shrug*)
Speaking of the Little Man, check out how times have changed since last April’s Pajama Party.
Yep, he was just a gender-unknown bump-in-waiting back then. And now, he’s pulling himself up to stand and coasting along the furniture. Time, she goes fast.
Right, on that note, I’m off to curl up in bed with a good book, coz that’s the best way to break in a new pair of PJ pants!
Thanks for hosting another awesome pajama party Karen! Super fun to follow along, even if I didn’t make the “official” PJ pants this year. I’m looking forward to seeing what everyone else made! 🙂
