You're never too old for footie pajamas
SewBaby fabrics that was perfect- thick enough to be warm, but breathable so she won't get too hot.
I used an orange zipper and turquoise ribbing to accent the colors in the print.
You wouldn't think that this was a stripe, but all of the circles are in a row, so you really do need to treat it as a stripe. I tried to align the circles when cutting out the pattern, and it turned out pretty well!
For non-slip feet, I used this slipper gripper in red, also available at SewBaby.
The feet are cut out of both the fabric and the slipper gripper, so there is an extra layer of cushioning in them. A package has enough for two projects, so now I've got to figure out who else might want either slippers, or another pair of these?
As you can see, she is in love with her new pajamas. Isn't it nice to know that there are still things that Mom can do that a store can't quite duplicate. Oh, and the cake was delicious too. A fair trade.
Do you have grown-up children who still want you to sew for them?
