Jammiepalooza 2012 Begins!

2012 December 13

Of course after announcing that my mojo was in high gear, it disappeared right afterwards.  I should know better than to jinx myself that way.  Sheesh!  Also, I have been sick for 5 weeks, so there’s that.

But there’s also this…  I have just finished pre-treating all my fabric for this year’s Jammiepalooza.  Since I have some time on my hands these days before I start working on my next big project, I thought I would make all the kids in my family some lounge pants and some tops for part of their Christmas presents.  Technically they’re not jammies, but that’s how I hope they will be used.  I bought two different but coordinating flannels, one for the girls (3 of them) and one for the boys (2 of them).  I bought them from Mumm Quilters from whom I had never bought before.  Their service and shipping were quick!  I had a hard time sourcing any holiday flannel at all.  Of course, I started looking for it in December, long after smart crafters have already purchased their holiday supplies and cleaned out the major on-line retailers.  Will someone please remind me to buy this stuff in October next year???  I will most likely use Simplicity 5271 again for all five pants, but will add a ruffle at the hem for the girls.   Cute, right?

And for all five tops, I thought I would use this cute interlock knit from The Fabric Fairy (they always have cute knits for kids).

I’m not sure which pattern I will use though for the tops.  It will either be S5271, the Raglan sleeve top, or my old standby which I just used for Jack’s jammies last week, KS3510.

Well enough blathering on, I have to get cutting!

Happy holiday sewing to you all!
