My Sole KCWC Project

Despite the fun that I had participating in KCWC during the last go-round, I had to be honest with myself and realize that there was no way in hell that I had either the time or the energy to fully participate this time.  Life is just too crazy right now and the thought of adding one more thing to my plate just makes me want to crawl into bed and pull the covers over my head.

That said, I did make one kid's item for KCWC so if you'll allow me to be an honorary member of KCWC I'll show you what I managed to whip up - a little pair of flannel pajamas for the special little toddler in my life.


With the weather developing a distinct chill in the air and with O far too big for all her little fleece footed pjs, I figured that she deserved a little something warm and snugly to sleep in at night (don't we all?).  And that's when I remembered that I purchased an Oliver and S's bedtime story pajamas pattern eons ago.  I remember after I bought it thinking "why the hell did I do that?  I'll never spend that much time making pajamas" and yet here I am, doing just that.


The pjs are made out two Moda flannels and they are so soft.  Seriously.  Even though they are both from the same line I was a little worried about pairing these two colors together (I'm kind of a color-matching wimp) but in the end, I think it came out okay.  As for the pattern, it was fabulous - as all Oliver and  S patterns are. 

O embracing the kimono style and practicing her bowing
Now there have certainly times been times that I've had to bribe my child to wear what I've made for her, but fortunately this was not one of them.  In fact, when I went to change her the next morning she began to throw a total fit.   And when I asked her what was wrong she told me "I want to wear my pajamas today."  It turns out that she wanted to show her little buddy at the babysitter's house her new pjs.  Um, could that be any sweeter?  Nope, pretty sure it couldn't.

  19. Popping back in to say that the cutest of these jammies made me go out and purchase a small fortune of flannel today and I found the LAST Bedtime Story PJs pattern at my local fabric store today, 40% off. My reward for finishing (and um, starting) his Halloween costume is to make these jammies.
