Mojo in high gear
Yesterday, I took out some pj’s for Jack to wear and he said he didn’t want to wear them because they had holes in the knees. The next 4 or 5 pairs were in an equally forlorn state. (He likes to slide down the halls on his knees, in case you were wondering.) We found him a set to wear last night, but I was determined to make him a couple of pj’s today to start filling up the holes in his wardrobe. Pun intended.
So last night I took a trip to ye olde fabric closet to choose some cozy knits, found my go to pj pattern (KS 3510) and cut up some fabric. Oh I did have to lengthen the pattern though as he is a size 5 now and the pattern only goes to 4. I just added an inch and a half at the lengthen lines for each pattern piece and trued up the side seams. Kids mostly grow up, not out, so this set fits him spot on.
This morning I sat in my own pj’s and made him two new sets. They are too stinking cute (if I do say so myself). Since I’ve made these several times before, review here, I won’t go into too many details. I did use my coverstitch for the neckline and hems, but for construction I used my serger. They look pretty professional if I do say so myself. Boy, I’m getting a little braggy, aren’t I?
But enough talky talk, let’s let the pictures do the bragging…
And may I introduce the little boy who lives with me modeling the PJ’s…
Not sure what’s next, but my mojo is really cranking right now. Hope you all are having good sewing mojo these days. 🙂
