Whether it is your go-to bag for shopping or a gift for someone, this simple and chic crossbody purse is a great bag for everyday of the year.
Start by creating the pajama pants from your selected pants pattern. I like to use flannels for the pajamas I make for my children. Not only is it warm and cozy, I think its softness only improves in numerous washings!
I used the Goodnight Sweetheart PJ pattern in the book Sewing For Boys. I recommend it because it has a comfortable, no nonsense elasticated waistband which provide room for growth!
Once you have finished sewing up the pants, the easiest way to make the pajama top is to embellish a store-bought tee. You can buy long-sleeves for the cooler months and short sleeves for the summer. And by adding a simple embellishment you can make the top and bottoms into a cute, matching ensemble.
I started by backing the flannel I used for the pajama pants with some iron-on adhesive. I then used the Bird medium design set and ran the fabric through my Fuse, which cut my fabric bird shapes perfectly. I used contrasting fabrics for the bird wings, so that they would stand out from the design more.
Following the manufacturer’s directions, I removed the backing paper from the adhesive and ironed the appliqués to the tee. Be sure to read each manufacturer’s directions carefully.
Though the adhesive I used does not require you to sew the appliqué, I prefer the look of a sewn edge, so I went around the bird shapes with a straight stitch on my machine.
And that’s it!
