Yesterday I got an afternoon all to myself to sew, yippppeeeeee! It was Christmas present city, well kind of. Anyway I am going to show you one, as I am not sure if I will be able to get this present to the recipient before Christmas so I figured it won't spoil the surprise. Also the recipient is 4.
For the longest time I have been trying to figure out what I can sew for little boys. When they are very young I can make them dungarees out of awesome material for them but after about 6 months that doesn't really work anymore. I knew he liked planes (a lot) and this material was just screaming out to me to make something for him.
Finally I figured it out. Pajamas, Pajamas can be made out of any material, they are fun and often the sillier the better. The only problem was that I didn't have a pattern for trousers, and I am not that confident making one up as I have never sewn trousers before.
A google search later and this awesome site came up... http://www.craftandfabriclinks.com/pj/pajama_pattern.html, The great thing about this pattern is that they really explain what each piece is so resizing the pattern is pretty easy. Although I might have gone on the big side as I don't really know how big a four year old is.
Lots of Love
