Christmas 2008 Flannel Pajama gifts - DONE!

Did you hear that shout of joy?

That was just me...a very happy me.

Very happy to be able to be done sewing the little flannel pajamas for this year.

Not that I don't love sewing gifts. And these certainly are not difficult to sew. It's just that I do get a bit bored sewing the same thing, over and over and over. Even with production sewing (same color thread, sew all the same seams at the same time, press at the same time, etc.) it gets monotonous after awhile.

In addition to my favorite New Look pattern, I ended up using a vintage 1988 boy's pattern for the white and red pjs shown. Just for a change of pace. I had picked it up for a whopping 30 cents from a thrift store at the same time I had found that fabulous Vintage Vogue pattern I posted on my pattern blog.

There was not quite 1/2 yard left over from most of these so I also whipped up a couple of little flannel pillows using the left-over fabric and pillow forms that I had stashed away. Oh how I love using things up and getting them out of the house!

Anyway, I'm glad to have the flannel nightwear done so I can move onto the toddler aprons.

But not tonight. Tonight we make homemade caramels...yum!
