Personalised PJ's

At the very end of the school term Miss L was invited to a PJ party.  
She surveyed my (fairly extensive) fabric collection and declared none of it to be suitable for her new PJ's and suggested a trip to Spotlight for her to choose something new.
(What have I created...)

Apparently she no longer likes pink, it's all about blue now.



Because I can't show you the whole shirt it looks a little odd!  But it has her name appliqued on and then I did a row of simple backstitch around the edge to highlight it a little.

The pants are the Make It Perfect Slumber Party pattern - I just didn't do the contrasting cuffs.

A simple ruffle was done to cover the stitching at the sleeve edge of the store-bought top I used.


Very basic but much-loved Pj's.

They make a really quick and easy gift if you know the size of the birthday girl or boy, and I haven't met a kid yet who doesn't like getting clothing with their name on it.

They're so sweet - and I love the ruffles on the sleeve edges, it really pulls the whole look together. I seem to be creating fabric-hungry monsters in my house, too ;)
