~Summer Jammies~

I love my new sewing machine. But you could probably guess that, huh? What with all the sewing projects I've been blogging about, it wouldn't be too hard to figure out. ;-)

I previously mentioned finding some vintage sheets. I was out thrifting again, and found another sheet:

I bought it with the express purpose of making my daughter a pair of summer jammies. I'm not sure if it would qualify as "vintage" or not? But I like it a lot! And so does my daughter. When I was taking the above picture, she said that it was "gorgeous". Thank you, Fancy Nancy, for the vocabulary help!

The bottoms are about one inch too long (on purpose). I love the ruffle along the bottom! I used Butterick 4910, size 2.

Do you ever wonder why almost every picture on my blog has the same wood grain background? I have a cedar hope chest sitting in front of the living room window, and this spot is about the only place in my house with good lighting, especially in our dark winter months. I took some of the toys off for the above picture, but the other half I didn't touch:

=) Have a good day!

Sweet little jammies, and they will only get softer and softer! I got a giggle out of her calling them "gorgeous!" ;)

Those are adorable pj's! I really like the fabric!

The toys on the other half of the hope chest made me smile. : )

It's been awhile since I have been to your corner of the blogosphere (at least 2 years!...I stopped blogging about 3 years ago so not sure if you remember me). When I read that you have a little girl I was filled with joy for you. Congratulations to you and your husband, what a blessing!

I adore the print! Its like sleeping in sheets...literally! :) Nothing better than fresh cotton in the summer!

I think those are the cutest little PJ's I have ever seen! I love that you used vintage sheets for them! I have a stash of vintage sheets I have been thinking of making a quilt with.
