Warm & Cosy...


I'm in love with Hannah's new pj's that I whipped up last week!

Even if you are just beginning your sewing adventures, these are a nice and easy project.

They took me no longer than half an hour to make!  I love anything nice & quick... especially now that I've constantly got to have one eye on Hannah at all times!!!  I think she's going to be my cheeky little monkey child.  It seems that every week she gets a few centimetres taller... which leads me to be constantly shifting things to higher ground!  Thankfully, she hasn't taken a shining to my sewing machines yet... we could be in a whole world of trouble when that day comes!

Please excuse my lack of ironing!
They are a tad bit too long, but that's nothing that a little rolling up of the cuffs won't fix for now.  At least these should still fit her next winter.


I picked up this gorgeous flannelette fabric from Spotlight during the huge 40% off sale a few months back.  These photos don't really do any justice... the birds on this print are so sweet!

If you are in need of a good PJ bottom tutorial... checkout these ones...




I learnt how to make PJ bottoms from that last link, over at Instructables.


I should probably make myself a pair too!  Must remember to add it to my to-do list!!!



Linking up for iBOT & maybe even over here.

    1. Great minds think alike!!! :D
      It's gorgeous isn't it! It was a last minute grab, as I spotted it on the pile of bolts to go back out on the floor while getting all my other fabrics cut.... I couldn't not get some!

    1. Thanks Penny :) Pants are quiet easy once you know what you're doing... I remember my first attempt, I had sewn one leg right way, the other inside out! Sometimes my unpicker is my best friend!!! lol

  8. So cute!
    I'm itching to get into some sewing activities, but I just don't have the time right now, and if I make it, other things will slide that really shouldn't. I need to work out some kind of sewing schedule I think..

    1. I should probably have more of a schedule! I have my sewing machines set up in our living area, so when ever I get a few moments of peace and sanity (these moments are always short-lived!) I'll quickly whip something up. It's very rare for me to complete a project (even the quickest ones) in one sitting. I love what you're making... that quilt was fantastic!!!
