I’m very happy with how my first pajama set came out! I made flannel pants for my older son with some cute owl fabric that I got at Jo-Ann Fabrics. Then I had this awesome owl fabric that I got from Sew Mama Sew (it’s from On a Whim by Amy Schimler for Robert Kaufman), so I cut out a couple of owls, and adhered them to an American Apparel long sleeve tee (BEWARE, they run really small!), then did a tight zigzag stitch around the outside of the shapes. Admittedly, the zig zag isn’t beautiful and I see more practice in my future. But, they are pajamas, so no big deal!
Now, I need to make a set for my younger son. He wants a bird on his, so I’m going to use my Pink Bird Seed fabric from when I won Sew Mama Sew’s Free Fabric Friday. I’m not sure what I will make the pants out of. I think I might make them out of the shark flannel I have even though that won’t match the bird. He would just dig the sharks.
