October’s swap on my favorite online sewing board was for PJs. We really need winter PJs around here, and I thought it would be a great way to get me moving on them! My swap partner has a son and a daughter who are six and thirteen, so I sewed for both of them, and she sewed for Jamie and Samantha. (Samantha was so excited to get something handmade in the mail!)
Here are the jammies that we received:
The kids love them, and they fit so well!
Here are the jammies that I sent to my partner in Hawaii:
Isn’t that view gorgeous?
I also want to show off these little t-shirts that I dyed for Baby Charlie. It is so hard to find solid colored tees for little ones, and we really like them for the newborn stage with wool longies over our cloth diapers (hmmm . . . I feel like I’ve said that before). I found these side-snap t-shirts on clearance at our local Ross:
A couple of evenings and several packs of Dylon later, and they look like this:
I love the vibrant colors!
And one last picture of Samantha and Jamie in their new jammies because it’s so sweet!
