And by "making," I mean reading a few tutorials, purchasing elastic and pre-washing my fabrics. So far, so good!!
Most of the tutorials I found for pajama shorts used a prefab pair of pajama pants or shorts to create a new pattern, which is what I would have done anyway. I love taking things apart and tracing them for new items. (That's how Thomas Jefferson and Paul Revere got their wigs for school projects a couple years ago.) I have a pair of Adidas running shorts that are mis-sized on the way-too-big side; they should be perfect for making a comfy, roomy pattern for my pajama shorts.
I've resisted buying any pajama shorts knowing I could and should make them, and it will be a welcome treat to have these for lounging arond!
What are you working on these days?
p.s. The winner of Angela's Free Motion Quilting book is Olivia, who said:
"Once I decide on a free-motion quilting motif for my borders, I practice it w a sharpie on paper in miniature, then I pencil in the actual border size onto freezer paper and practice it again full-size before I step to my machine. I've been able to free-motion complicated continuous line drawings like dragons in this way. :) Hope this helps!"
There were a lot of great, helpful tips on that post! Thanks for sharing and entering!
