There hasn’t been a whole lot of sewing going on around here, I have been pretty focused on a bigger project lately…we are building a house! It is a project that has been in the works since we bought some property back in 2012 and we finally broke ground back in March. It has been such a fun (and stressful) project.
Up until now most of the work has been contracted out but recently I have gotten my hands dirty and we have been doing some of the work ourselves, so I have spent a lot more time caulking and a lot less time sewing. But I have managed to squeeze in a few projects, including these summer pajamas for my kids.
It seems like no matter how many pairs of jammies my kids have, it is never enough, or maybe I just need to do laundry more often. Either way, these jammies were a quick fun project and I love the results!
I took my kids to the fabric store with me and let them choose their own fabric for their PJs. I was not at all surprised with their choices. Em went straight to Minnie Mouse, this girl loves all things Minnie and even all things pink or red polka dot. A went back and forth a bit between Superman, Spiderman, and Star Wars, but once he saw the TMNT it was over, he had to have it!
They both got a simple pair of shorts. I made them using my tutorial from a fewyears ago, so easy and only takes about 30 minutes to sew up.
Then I paired A’s with a t-shirts and made Em a night shirt to match hers. I used a shirt she already owns to get the sizing right and made a simple peasant style shirt finished with some fold over elastic at the neckline.
Then we broke in the jammies with some jumping on the bed!
Thanks for stopping by!
