Sewing PJs

Unfortunately, I have broken my sewing machine again… I finished up a couple of big projects and decided to change the needle. Well, I didn’t tighten the screw enough, and the needle popped out and punched holes in my bobbin case. :/

Poor, perforated bobbin case.

So, I won’t be sewing for a little while. But, at least I was able to finish up some PJ pants for the little man before the disaster happened.

I used some light flannel, which is nearly always on sale at Fabricland for as low as $3 or $4/metre. The pattern is Simplicity 3669, which includes several different tops as well. But, when there is a sale, I can get plain white tops for as low as $3, so I figured my time was better spent sewing up the bottoms since they work up so quickly. I do the seams on my serger, and then finish up the hems and zipper casing/waistband on my sewing machine.

Do you sew pjs, or any clothes, for yourself or someone else? I’d love to know.

    I love all kinds of sewing and sew most of my own clothes. For Christmas this year all the ladies got aprons. Ran out of time to do something for the guys too.

    Sorry about the sewing machine Heather. I bought a Brother sewing machine at Walmart in Dec. 2013 on sale for $50.00. I have not even taken it out of the box. lol
    Love the pj bottoms.

    I don’t sew at all but I really should because my little one refuses to wear anything other than plain blue pj bottoms and proper jacket tops. Have you any idea how difficult it is to find these? LOL
