I Occupied My Sewing room for the Friday Night Sew-In!



Hello!  :)

I occupied my sewing room most of the day, into the night Friday.  :)

Remember when I showed you this fabric and told you I was making something for my 23 year old son & my hunky dude with it? Did you guess what I could be making?


Here it is . . .


Still don't know what it is huh? Well it's a bandana! I made two of them. They like to wear them occasionally as do rags. Of course they were very simple and quick to make. I just measured another bandana. I then added 1/2" to the measurements for seam allowances and sewed them up. They will make great stocking stuffers for my two older men.  ;)

I almost got all the jammie pants done. All seams and hems are done on 5 out of 6 of them, but the elastic's not in them yet. I had got a deal on the elastic online at JoAnn's, with free shipping, and it hadn't come in yet. Of course it came in today so I'll be adding it tomorrow and sewing the elastic holes closed. I almost finished sewing the 6th pair up but ran out of thread. I was almost done too! Of course I used a special color. Now I have to go buy some more tomorrow. Oh well.  :)  I took pictures of them although they didn't turn out too well and you can't see much (sorry!).

Here are the one's I made for my oldest son Jay . . .


Here are the two I made for my youngest son Pete . . .


And these are the two I made for my only daughter Jess (the unfinished pair is still inside out) . . .


I have to say this was a very productive FNSI! I really wish I had got them completely finished but will do so tomorrow. It will be nice to cross these items off my to do list.  :)

Thanks to the wonderful hosts for hosting another successful FNSI!

Until Next Time . . .

Don't Miss Out on my GIVEAWAY!  :)

PJs, or lounge pants as we have to call them here, are so much fun to make. I have that pink owl/peace fabric!

Oh I am in envy that you got your pants completed! I found a pair of flannel pj pants I started a few years ago. It was my goal to finally get them finished and it was only now, after all these years, that I realized that i cut out 4 "Front" parts! They are finally going into my scrap bin! lol. Great job, truly!
