It's that time of year again. . .the nights are getting cooler and the kids all need something to keep them warm and cozy as they sleep. Sew Mama Sew is hosting a Pajama Party for the month of September and I finally got on the ball to get some pj's made for my girls. Nothing like procrastination and a mug of hot apple cider to get the job done.☺
As you know, I love to go to garage sales. I found some vintage sheets/pillowcases just a couple of weeks ago for 25¢ each. Love that. The hems on the sheets were really cute with contrasting/coordinating fabric and crocheted trim. I used an old pj pattern for the pants that I had on hand and they came together really easy. I loved not having to hem them. I got them both a little bit too long, but they are growing so fast right now that's probably a good thing. By Spring I will be glad I made them as long as I did.
For the tops we went to Target and bought a couple of long sleeved white t-shirts and then I appliqued cut out flowers for Pumpkin and two hearts for Princess. I'm pleased with how they turned out. The boys are feeling a little left out, so I found more sheets that weekend that are a little more boyish. Hopefully I'll get some pants whipped up for them too.
There's still a couple days left in September if you want to join in the party. Just hit the button on the right sidebar and it will take you right to Sew Mama Sew where you can get all the details. Can't wait to see all the ideas and creativity that you put into your handmade pajamas.
