I finally finished Laura’s jammies! I used #6 from Ottobre 03/04 and was really pleased with them. Fabric was the pink color way of the Chickadees and Hearts knits offered by The Joys of Sewing co-op recently, as well as some brown velour I got in a grab box from Sewzanne’s a few years ago.

Fabrics for jammies

I have plans to make another pair of these jammies in the blue Chickadees color way. I’ve already got the pattern cut out—all I have to do is find the time. (Ha.)

They have not been very hard to sew at all—there was that invisible zip, but it was really no problem. The velour I used for the middle panel was kind of tetchy, but even that wasn’t terrible. I put the last snaps in tonight and the girl is asleep in them right now. Of course, that means I don’t have any pictures of her wearing them yet, but I’ll take care of that in the morning. The size is a little large for her—I made a 68 and I think she’s closer to a 62 right now. However, they’re close enough and she has plenty of room to grow into them. I hate making an outfit and having it outgrown in just a few weeks!

Next up, sewing wise—got to get the “Hertta” skirt and “Tiku” t-shirt from Ottobre 01/09 made up for Sarah’s birthday party this weekend. Both patterns look really easy—should be able to get them whipped up over the next few days, especially as both Wednesday and Thursday the kids will be in their respective schools and I will be able to devote both days to sewing. Have needle will travel!

Finally, here are the final pictures of the cake/cupcakes from Harrison’s birthday party. I was/am very proud of what I got done and don’t even mind that I’m going to have to get my chiropractor to pop my heel (!!!) since I had to stand on it for so long. :)

Coolest. Birthday. Cake. Ever

Happy birthday, little man!
