Getting My Stitch On

I did a lot of sewing this weekend. When I say a lot I mean it! Miss. S has been needing some more jammies for a while now. I've been waiting for them to go on sale but this weekend I got tired of waiting. After some serious brainstorming I thought of making some pajama pants for her out of some of her old receiving blankets. Total cost for 3 pairs of pants was $6. I bought a pattern and elastic and that is it. Here are the old blankets that my sister Jessy made for me.And the new jammie pants after.I used Simplicity Pattern #2734 and it really was quite simple. I even have a lot of fabric left over for when she gets a little bigger. Here they are on a sleepy model.I loved that I could go through a closet and find something old and turn it into something new. It was so much fun.

Tomorrow I'll show the other sewing project I worked on!

These are so cute. I need to do this with Sophia's blankets when she is done with them! Thanks for the idea.

What a cute idea! You are inspiring me to get into sewing. Too bad you live so dang far away. I could really use a good teacher!
