Just before school started, my 2 DD's and I were at Hobby Lobby. For my oldest daughter, it is fun for her. For my youngest daughter, NOT SO MUCH.... She hates the fabric store! I dread going there under these circumstances, but we had several errands to run and this was one of the stops.
As I was picking up what I needed, my youngest DD, Sierra, came to me with a bolt of fabric and said, "Mommy, can you make PJ's with this? I love this fabric!" It could have been the most expensive and ugliest fabric on earth and I would have bought it anyway. I wonder if she is "growing up" and her creative juices are coming out... I was shocked to hear those words from her. Sierra wanted PJ's from this fabric and I almost forgot everything else I came to the store for because she definitely threw me a curve-but a very rewarding one!
Whooo would have known? ;)
Sometimes, it is just easier to cut 2 fabrics at the same time-which is what I did! Sierra now has an assortment of Fall PJ's.
The owl applique is a freebie on sewforum and is just adorable! The flower applique is my go-to- applique from lynniepinnie.com.
If you were wondering, both PJ bottoms are a capri-length. This was also Sierra's idea and a great one!
Sierra's creativity is so refreshing and I am SO proud of her. Proud, yes. Scared, too. Why you ask.... My sewing room is in jeporady. To be taken over by a sassy pre-teen, twilighter, and book-lover.
And..... I'm loving every minute of it. ;)
