I have been wanting to post pictures of these pajamas for many weeks! Since it is December 26, I can finally blog without fear of ruining any surprises!!
This year I decided to take my crazy-dog-lady status to a whole new level with the help of Spoonflower. Spoonflower is a company, based in North Carolina, that allows you to create your own fabric. I uploaded my pictures of Scout and Louise (with background removed), chose the minky option, and they sent me two yards of Scout fabric and two yards of Louise fabric.
I knew that I wanted Scout on one leg of the pajama bottoms and Louise on the other. I usually just make my own pattern for pajama bottoms by tracing a pair of RTW bottoms, but I was super afraid of making a mistake. To limit the potential for disaster, I used Simplicity 1505 for the bottoms. It went together easy-peasy. I will definitely use this pattern again.
I was originally going to just make pajama bottoms, but after I finished the bottoms, I knew I wanted to make a matching pajama top. The only problem was that I didn’t really have enough fabric, so I got creative. I used Kwik Sew 3045 for the top. I didn’t have enough fabric to cut the front on the fold, so I pieced it together with a little Scout and a little Louise. I used some light-weight black fleece for the sleeves and then some rust fleece for the back.
This was my favorite Christmas gift that I gave this year. He was so surprised!! It was so much fun!!
