you Silly

Sometimes lists are silly.  Like when you finally confront your little one's bare wrists and ankles protruding from his too-small pajamas, and instead of adding pajamas to "the list" you just pull out some flannel and start cutting.

Liam.


Everything about making these was easy and make-do.  Flannel remnants on hand?  Check.  Pattern pieces already cut out?  Check.  Pattern directions actually make sense?  Oliver & S., so check, check (obviously).  Elastic for waistband on hand?  Uh, err, wait for it.  Sewing elastic scraps together.....

Check!

Now Liam's enjoying the fruits of my labor, fresh off the needle!  And, yes, I totally cheated.  Pajama pants are so quick, but pajama tops... not so much.  Add a sweatshirt and call it a day.

new PJ's... Stat.

A good day.

Silly

Silly!

P.S.  We're taking both our sillies to Disney next week courtesy of the in-laws.  Their first time!  I've got some things scheduled and will also post live if we manage to take any good photos.  Tomorrow's an 8-hour drive.  Wish us luck!

  1. Cute! I am going to check out that pattern. And have SO MUCH FUN at Disney! It's my favorite place in the world. I am a little obsessed...we went for our honeymoon, our first anniversary, son's first birthday...going on a cruise in March. Yeah, I love it. :)

  7. Cute! Nobody wears pajama tops, do they? In my family, we always pair our pj pants with a sweatshirt or t-shirt.

  10. Oh, I'm so jealous. When we took our kids years ago our youngest thought the characters were real. I hadn't really thought about it so was so surprised when he said he could see Donald Ducks "real" skin.

    1. The car trip went surprisingly well! And, I know, his expression is so funny. He was actually worried I'd show is belly button. I was tempted ;)

  15. It's so weird, Rachel, I commented on this post, but it must not have gone through. In case this ends up being a duplicate, I apologize! :)
    Your idea to sew elastic together is ingenious! There have been so many times I've had to make a last minute run to the store because I don't have elastic and it's such a drag. This is brilliant!
    I've made these Oliver + S pajama pants so many times, paired with a T shirt, just like you did. If you want to make them even easier, nix the contrasting waistband (the T shirt covers it up anyway!) and add 1.5 inches to the waist instead. I also haven't been adding the binding to the leg because it feels so heavy to me - but it definitely is cute! Nice work!

  17. Oh....you'll be here for Marathon weekend. It'll be crowded so be ready. Love the pj's. I am terrible at making pants. They just never come out right.
