Merry Christmas! It has been 3 years since I've sewed a pile of PJ pants for Christmas presents. Most of the flannel I picked out was in my queue for PJ pants for 2 Christmases ago! It feels good to get a bunch done again.
For this batch, I made 5 pairs. I'm making 11 in total this year. Including one for me! I only had to buy flannel for 3 pairs this year. The rest had been bought 2 years ago. And this pink Snoopy flannel was in my stash. I made my mom a pair out of this ages ago, and it must've been on sale, because after another pair, I still have a bunch left! These are for Allee, my 14-year-old friend who loves to sew. She saw this in my sewing room and requested a pair of PJ pants.This funky neon animal print is for my brother's girlfriend, Elisha. This was one of the 3 flannels that I bought. I found this at Fabricland. Isn't it awesome? I knew she loved animal prints.
I made 2 pairs of these camouflage pants. One for my dad, one for my husband. Dad asked me for a pair, and I had already had this picked out for him from the stash 2 years ago!
And these Homer Simpson pants are for my husband. He loves the Simpsons. I honestly can't remember where I found this flannel. Isn't it awesome?
Allee got her pants and posted this on Facebook for me. She says they fit perfectly and they're her new favourite pyjamas! I always love hearing that!Elisha absolutely loves her pants! She wore them to bed Christmas Eve (we had a sleepover at our grandparents' house), and all day Christmas day. They fit perfectly!
And Dad loves his, too. They also look like a perfect fit! It's nice for me to see the pants on people. It confirms for me that the patterns I use fit really well. The pants I make for myself are from a different pattern, so I'm glad to see that other bodies fit in them.
And later this week, I will be whipping out another 5 pairs! Stay tuned! And Happy New Year, because I likely won't get them done until the weekend.
