Well, I’ve gone and outed myself to friends & family. I finally let them all know that I blog about my sewing adventures here. I guess I have to stop using swear words. Not that I do much. One time I accidentally dropped the F-bomb when my mom was in the room and she yelled at me to go to my room. This was last year. In my home.
Anyway it’s been getting cold here so I decided to make some flannel pajamas for L. I hacked the Oliver + S Sketchbook shirt pattern that I just used for Fix-It Felix, Jr. and finally got around to using Rae’s Parsley Pants pattern for pajama pants.
I found this flannel at Jo-Ann’s – can’t find it online but keep an eye out for sales on flannel! I used two yards.
Weirdly enough, I’ve never made L pajama pants so it was really refreshing to sew these up so quickly! I also hemmed them by machine while I normally do a blind hem by hand on most of his pants.
I drafted a new back pattern piece for these pajamas as I didn’t think the yoke and back pleat were necessary, and I just thought it might be a little more comfortable for L. It was a pretty easy pattern hack: I just overlapped the yoke and back pieces 1 inch to remove the seam allowance and followed the pattern edge so they matched up. I cut it with a straight hem all around. I traced it on to freezer paper so I can make this up again quickly! I’m tempted to shove everything off my queue and just make these PJs over and over again.
I don’t know why PJs always have a little breast pocket. Who would put something there?
I went with the hexagon snaps again… I can’t help it. Sometimes L is a struggle to get PJs on so I thought snaps would shave off a couple of seconds.
Oh my God these moose are just killing me.
This boy cracks me up too.
I made this the background on my phone, because how could I not smile when I look at this fantastic smile?
Blurry but MELTS MY HEART.
These PJs are perfect for snuggling with Daddy.
