PJ's for Sarah

The dilemma of what to give a 15 year old for her birthday - pj's (handmade of course) with a bought longsleeved tee from Cotton On Body, fluffy white slippers and a matching drawstring bag!

I just love the fabric - I bought it at Spotlight and it really is lovely - beautiful to work with too. I think it is Japanese!
The top didn't photograph too well - it is much less orange in real life.

That's a beautiful gift for a teenager....it's so hard to think of something handmade when they're that age.

THAT is gorgeous! Pretty, pretty fabric. And fluffy slippers as well! Don't worry about 15, how about 39?

That's a great idea for a teenage gift. The fabric is really sweet. The PJs and bag are beautiful!

I'm so glad you posted them they are absolutely gorgeous! The colour actually looks pretty similar on my screen - go figure! I am going to whizz down to Spotlight tomorrow and see if I can get me some of that gorgeous fabric!! I bet it would look amazing with the red gingham!

They are lovely Cathy! I just bought some tops from cotton for some more PJ's for my lot. Hope you are well. Good luck in Sydney!

What a lovely idea for a girl's present, any age really. And it wouldn't take too long to make. Mind if I use your idea?
