As a designer of children’s patterns I’ll admit I’m quite particular about the patterns for children I buy. I look for comfortable ease, accurate fits and style that is realistic for the everyday child. Have you ever spent hours on an outfit for your little one just to see them squirm around saying, “I want this off”.
As a mother I look for patterns to have clear instructions, a realistic amount of time to sew and the comfy factor. Especially having boys, they need to have wrestling room. When Gina suggested a class for Pj’s I was very excited. I am a fan of “Favorite Things” patterns and the style of the Little Sleep Well Pj's particular pj’s are great. Stylish & Comfortable.
When I went to the shop to pick fabric for the shop sample I decided (with the help of very helpful Amy) to make something for a boy. There are so many girl clothes that I thought we all needed to see something cute for the boys too. Since the weather is still chilly I decided to use a nice flannel. The flannel Bolt has in stock is such great quality and the prints by Amy Butler and Anna Maria Horner are better than anything I have ever seen when it comes to flannel. This is the type of flannel that will last without pilling and because of this factor these pj’s will make for a terrific hand me down.
Join me for class Thursdays 2/11 & 2/18, 6:30-8:30pm.
