Yes, that’s the name of a book but, no, that’s not what this post is about. Saturday I found myself between knitting projects. Instead of starting the next one, I decided to do a little sewing. A friend recently gave me some brand new size 14 girl’s dresses to make something out of. While researching for my Gifting post over at Today’s Mama, I came across a tutorial for making pajamas. Since these were fresh on my mind, I decided to make that my first project!
It took me most of the afternoon to finish the pants. (My poor family…they really bear with me through all my projects!) I tried to make a shirt but my measurements must have been off because it was too tight! Oh, well. While Miss Emma would probably love to have a shirt, she is thrilled to have a new pair of pajama pants! She loves to be cozy and comfy!
The next day I was very much eyeing the sleeves that I didn’t use, and thought, “Legwarmers!” I decided to knit the cuff and sew them to the sleeves. Emma G chose the yarn from my stash, and I did a k1p1 rib for 2 inches. I was very pleased with the results. Miss Emma loves to accessorize so these are perfect for her.
Of course, it wouldn’t be her if she didn’t wear them just a little bit differently!
I still have 6 more dresses to transform, but now I think I need a sewing break. Back to a craft I’m a little better and faster at…knitting!
