How much does it cost to make four pairs of pajamas and two nightgowns?
$30? $40? $50?
Well, let me tell you...
big chunk of flannel from the thrift store...3.99
flannel sheet from the thrift store....2.99
bias trim from the thrift store...50 cents
four clearance-priced t-shirts....4.00
(That's about $2.16 per child!)
Not too bad! I used an old pair of pajama pants to make the pattern for the boys. The girls' nightgowns were made using this pattern from Sew, Mama, Sew! I did add a ruffle to the sleeves and bottom of the nightgown for added detail. The nightgowns seemed a little wide in the chest, so in the future I might cut them down a little. All in all, it was a pretty easy pattern.
Christmas Break was like one long pajama party!
And what's a pajama party without making a few goofy faces?
I also thought I would try my hand at Bokeh before the Christmas lights came down....and not just regular bokeh, but shaped bokeh. I learned the technique by following this tutorial at The Hobby Room. It's a pretty fun technique with amazing results.
I'm excited about this technique and can't wait to experiment more with it!
