When I went to Utah with my parents in April, Natalie and I went to Hobby Lobby. They were having a sale on patterns. Only 99 cents each. I picked up a few that I thought would be fun. Lately Blake and Leah have been in desperate need for pajamas. So I tried some out. This fabulous material is from my Grandma Southam. The girls have always wanted long flannel p.j.'s. The old-fashioned kind. This was an experiment to see if I could make a big pattern small for them. It worked, I will just have to use the long sleeves. That will probably be a Christmas project.
I found this on Pinterest months ago. The one I found had Frankenstein instead of a witch and said 'Have a Spooktacular Day' I thought a witch would be awesome. This us all just made out of 2x4's. (As Dave cut this for me I found out that a 2x4 is actually 11/2x31/2. That is crazy. Why is it called a 2x4 then?)
Blake loves his pajamas. They are very warm for winter. Dave said he should wear them for Halloween as a doctor. I was only buying enough material to do bottoms. Then I had lots left over and decided to see if I could make the top too. I only had enough for short sleeves and one piece on the top I had to sew two small ones together so I had a big enough piece to cut out. But you can barely tell and he doesn't care.
This is also one of my cheap patterns. I also got the material for Leah when I was in Utah. Leah's turned out great. Cora loved it and wanted one. She asked for something red. Her friend told her she loved it that Cora looked like a picnic table. We thought that was funny, she kinda does.
We tried to get a close up so you could see Leah's material. It has tiny shiny pink dots.
