So, waaaaay back in May of last year, Stacey of Boy, Oh Boy, Oh Boy! paired up some bloggers and challenged us to design fabric for each other.
I was assigned the lovely, Susan from Crafterhours. We hit it off great and immediately began our procrastination party. :)
We both took about forever to design our fabric, then forever, plus a day to order it…and now we are finally blogging about it. It was a match made in blogheaven. ;)
(It may have had to do something with the fact that we had 3 moves and a baby going on during that time…her baby, not mine…obviously :)).
I got the fabric right around Christmas, so I knew that I wanted to make it into pajamas for the boys. I made simple, 2 piece pajama pants and sewed them pretty much the same way as THIS tutorial. Then I added store bought plain tees. It was such a PERFECT, quick, easy project to do during Christmas prep frenzy, and my boys LOVE them!
I used the Spoonflower Kona cotton. It is really soft and nice, but I must warn you that it is slightly thinner than Kona you can buy off the bolt. My boys are already starting to wear holes in the knees. Seriously? Must I sew knees patches on pajamas pants too?
Okay. Wanna see what I designed for Susan? Head on over and check it out! :)
