Well, I got a lot of sewing done yesterday and today. In fact, I went to bed last night, and couldn't fall asleep, so I went back to my machine and sewed some more. Then my bobbin thread ran out, and I was too lazy to change it, so I went back to bed. Today is my free morning, so I washed the floor really quickly and went to work on my sewing....
We are going to visit my nephew for his first birthday, and I wanted to make him a special outfit. I chose a really cute pattern, and worked pretty hard, only problem....It is way too big! It fits Littleheart!!!! I hope it is big enough that he can wear it next winter...
I want him to have something for this year though (not that he will know the difference) so I looked through my brand new material and found the flannel train material I just ordered. Perfect, a soft pair of flannel PJ's!
It is so hard to know what size to make, right now he wears European 68, but he is growing so fast. I don't want him to grow out of it in one month. On the other hand, I made the first outfit a 92 and it is huge! So i compromised with myself and made the jammies around a 86. Of course I am panicky they will be too small, but we will just have to see.
For the pants, I just used a regular pants pattern, but made them with only two pieces following this tutorial. I added the feet using this tutorial. And I made the top starting out with this tutorial, but instead of the bias tape, I made the edge around the shirt using a new technique I learned while making the fleece coat. Oh and I used anti-slip material on the bottom of the feet! As you see, this shirt too is missing its snaps....Will just have to wait til I get them.
Here are some detail pictures:
Hope these keep you warm this winter baby E!
