Slumber Party Jammies
The Easter PJs were a little slow in the making this year around. And then it took me another couple of weeks to photograph them! I was waiting for an unrushed morning to capture them jumping on the bed in the lovely morning light…as if that is going to happen!! We work with what we have, so after bath tonight it was a quick line-up on the green wall.
I made myself work solely from the stash. The stash is getting a bit out of control. It is pretty much choc-a-block full now and I have more fabric on order. I’m ready to admit that I do have a fabric purchasing problem, the real problem is that there are more lovely fabrics being released in the next few weeks and I’m not sure I can say no…looks like I just need to do some more sewing!
Make It Perfect, Slumber Party Jammies Pattern
PJs in first photo – from Left to Right:
David Walker, Oh Boy!, Dinos on Blue with Robert Kaufman, Unknown trim.
Michael Miller, Tweet Tweet, Birdcage on White with Tanya Wheelan, Darla Rose, Picnic in Damask trim.
Dan Stiles, Marine, Sub Stripe with Dan Stiles, Marine, Urchin Forest, Daylight trim.
The fabric that I used for the main part of the jammies was sent to me by Kathryn, an Aussie fabric distributor who has just released her first range of fabric – “Little Monsters”. After dealing with many fabric stores, Kathryn and her husband became more aware of the scarcity of decent prints to use for boys and decided to fill the gap themselves!
They have done a super job – the fabric is great…very boyish and not babyish at all, making it perfect for sewing for older kids.
Little Monsters comes in the two colourways shown below and I’m really looking forward to sewing more from it.
If you’re wondering where you can purchase Little Monsters…a quick google search pointed me in the direction of these stores:
The Oz Material Girls
Make It Perfect, Big Slumber Party Jammies pattern
Stepping Stones, Little Monsters, Monster Squares in Orange/Aqua
Monaluna, Mingle, Squares in Steel
As promised, I am slowly working my way through my patterns and adding extra size ranges for those of you who want to sew for bigger kids.
Now you can sew your Slumber Party Jammies for ages 6 years – 10 years!
Just a quick reminder about how up-sizing my patterns works…
The old/original Slumber Party Jammies pattern remains the same, but will now be called LITTLE Slumber Party Jammies – with sizes for 6 months-5 years.
The new pattern, BIG Slumber Party Jammies is EXACTLY the same design, only the size range for this pattern is 6-10 years.
(Giveaway will close Sunday 6th March and winner will be drawn via a random number generator.)
