kids pajama pants {sew do it}

I know “sew do it” is a cheesy title, but I like it and it embodies my relationship with my sewing machine.

I learned to sew at a very young age on a very old Singer.  We had an affair, this lovely machine and I, one summer sewing what my mom called “hippie tops” and then parted ways.  Once I had my daughter, a surge of domestic drive revived my want to sew.  It stayed there, a want, for awhile.  Projects collected and some even were started, but not much came to fruition (hello tree skirt, curtains, and doll bedding).

Then this little thing called Pinterest infected my life, begging me to spends hours a day looking and pinning everything from hair-dos  to gardening tips.  I ignored the sewing projects for some time.  Then, I gave in and started pinning my “sew do its”.  But, nothing pushed me to act and complete until I saw a tutorial for kids pajama pants.

My daughter has a lot of pajamas but it never seems like enough.  After all, she does wear them every night and sometimes into the lazy days.  And those ever-growing legs of hers–I cannot keep up.  I bet many of you can relate.  Back to the tutorial–I found this very detailed tutorial by Dana Made It and it just spoke to me.  I said, out loud, to no one in particular, “I could make those”.   The first thought that came to me was almost a bully reaction of “so do it” (see, title, get it?).

So, I did it and they turned out so lovely we’ve got two more pairs waiting to be created.  Being the generous soul that I am, I’m sharing it with all of you who have not yet pinned it.  See the full (dummy proof) tutorial here at Dana Made It.  Dana really spells it out for you, making this sewing project doable for anyone.  And what could be more relevant than PJ Pants?

    In this awesome scheme of things you’ll get an A with regard to effort. Exactly where you misplaced me ended up being on all the particulars. You know, as the maxim goes, details make or break the argument.. And that could not be more accurate in this article. Having said that, permit me inform you what did give good results. Your writing is certainly very persuasive and that is possibly the reason why I am making the effort to opine. I do not make it a regular habit of doing that. Second, while I can see the leaps in logic you make, I am not necessarily sure of how you appear to unite your details which in turn help to make the actual conclusion. For the moment I will, no doubt yield to your point but wish in the foreseeable future you actually link the dots better.
