I'm excited to post today about a project I made for Lil Blue Boo's, What Would You Make series! Ashley sent several bloggers two yards of a gorgeous floral print, and we were allowed to use it however we liked. I loved the freedom of the challenge.
Does your fabric ever speak to you? When I opened Ashley's lovely package, the pretty print told me it wanted to become pajama pants ... a pair for me, and a pair for baby Ruby.
I used a Made by Rae's Big Butt Baby Pants pattern for Ruby's pants and drafted a pattern for the mama-sized pj's from a pair I already owned. For a comfy waistband on my pants, I opted for elastic thread. There may need to be some adjustments here, since when I was attempting a little photo session, Ruby kept repeatedly pantsing me. Apparently, a shirred waist is a little too flexible for my lifestyle with two busy toddlers.
