there is a true imbalance in this household when it comes to sewing - most are for the lovely moonpie. i mean, once you get those little skirts down, it's hard not to sit and just crank out a few at a time. poor buddy!
he has been really loving pajamas lately. i call him diane keaton because he has to be dressed from head to toe at all times. bed time is no different. he wants a shirt, pants and a fedora! this is a new thing. a few weeks ago he was sleeping in nothing but a pull-up, so the pj resources around here are limited. the perfect excuse to wrap my boy in some hand made love!
pay no attention to the toy abyss around his feet. hey- there are my flip-flops!!!
making these little pants were super easy. i took his one and only pair that are a little big on him and traced them right onto the fabric. if i were to do this with a pair that fit snugly, i would add an inch or so for a seam allowance.
for the pajama shirt i dug around in his shirt basket for some shirts that had stains on them. not too hard to find! then i cut out and sewed on some simple appliques from fabric scraps i had lying around.
i have another pair cut and ready to sew up.
buddy just loves his new pajamas. he has been wearing them non-stop since they came off of the machine!
