What I've Been Up To.

I just love PJ's and I can never seem to find any I like. I have had this fabric for ages, and I bought this pattern from Sew Mama Sew, so Little Lachie (6 years old) now has some really cute pjs.


This pattern is really, really easy to follow. Very clear with the instructions and layout of pieces. It is also a tissue paper pattern which you trace off (no maps of the London underground like Japanese patterns). I made the size 7 - 8 (it is a multiple size pattern all the way from Size 1 to 12). If you have short kids - the pattern will be way too long (if you do the long pants) - so I would recommend shortening the length. It is very easy to measure up and apart from the length, it is pretty exact.

The pattern is meant to have buttons, but my automatic button on my Janome is playing up, - it will decide to do one button, but then won't do any more for a few hours. Very frustrating, so I just put snaps.


I love the elastic in the pants - it only has it in the back and then it is a tie front. Very easy and effective. I am planning on making a whole lot more to co-ordinate with these ones - maybe some boxers, or there is cropped pants (which might look better on a girl). There is even a camisole in the pattern


I have also been really busy making these little totes for the shop, Miko, that I supply. Hopefully I will have these out by tomorrow and can make some more Jammies!!!



I just love the colours in these bags - very very girlie. I will post a photo when they are done.

Hi Cathy - thanks for your well wishes for me. I appreciate it. Your mountain of bags reminds me of princess-and-the-pea mattresses!
