DIY --Christmas Gift Pajamas-- McCall's and See & Sew


Few weeks ago I made my first set of pajamas for my daughter and son (HERE). It was a big hit with them!! They don't want to wear anything else to bed but what I mad them.  Come to find out my younger sister wanted a pair as well. I used the See & Sew B4322 again for my son and daughter and used the McCall's M6251 for my sister because she is a teenager.

Off to Joann Fabrics I went.  It was such a hard decision with all the fleece fabric to choose from.  I knew that I wanted Anti-Pill fleece and I needed to find something that would fit the personality of each child.  After a lot of up and downs through the aisles I settled on these fabrics.

My mother came up with the good idea of putting there nick names that she uses on the back of their pajamas. I purchased from Joann's Soft Iron-On Letters (Similar Here) I wanted them to have the same kind of softness that the pajama fleece has.

My 3 yr old nephew calls her Kayrah because that's how it sounds to him.

A lot of my friends and some family call him Skateboard P, but because my mom doesn't we just went with Peyt.

My mom has always called her Baby Cakes.  Now that she is going to be 11 in January she has shortened it just to cakes now.  She has so many nicknames especially for sports, but we wanted to keep it as a family gift

DO IT FOR THE GRAM!! I'M NOT GONNA DO IT!! (In my Will Ferrell Voice) LOL

This was the post that I put on my Instagram when I was done.

DIY -- Hello Kitty Scrub Top -- OOTD

DIY - Hello Kitty Scrub Top What I Wore Today
 Fabric from Joann Fabrics I'm not sure if you can buy this particular print online, but I did see it in a few of their retail stores. 
I used Wrights Extra Wide Double Fold Bias Tape accent the pockets and around the top.
 If you haven't read my About Me page yet, I state that I work full-time in the medical field.  I don't have to wear scrubs all the time, but when I want to be comfortable it's my go to option!!  I was tired of seeing the same scrub tops I was wearing that day on other co-workers in the hospital and smiling at each other because we didn't know what else to say.

I felt like I was in People Magazine on the "Who Wore It Better" page.

So I decided to start making my own tops!!  This is the 2nd scrub top that I have ever made.  The first one I made ended up being a complete bust (My Failure) and I never took a pic of it.  I definitely learned for my mistakes (My Triumph) and came out with what I c…

Scrub - A - Dub Sunday!! DIY - Scrub Tops

DIY - Scrub Sunday!!

I buckled down and add four more scrub tops to my work wardrobe.  I did this really for two reasons.
1) I like how easy and fast it is for me at this moment, very calming and non-stressful sewing!
2) I enjoy the compliments I get from my co-worker for having original scrub tops!
If you have not read my Fabric Haul 2 post, please check it out.  There you will find a description of all the fabric I used for these scrub tops.

My son decided that he wanted to draw all over my pocket template.

It seemed easier for me to just cut all the fabric out and just sew everything at once.

The only thing that was time consuming on these scrubs was changing the thread to match the color of the bias tape being used.

The finished products!! So happy!! Can't wait to wear them.

DIY - Burda Style Pattern 7065

 DIY - Burda Style Pattern B7065 View A

I have to admit.  I was so nervous to start this project.  Everything always looks great on the pattern envelope.  When you finally get the guts to start and sometimes get to the finished product, you look at it like WTH!!  Then it either gets seam ripped apart, scraped, put on a hanger in the back of your closet or balled up on the floor in the back of your closet.

This is 2 yards of fabric purchased fromVogue Fabrics from Chicago, IL. This company was one of the vendors at the Original Sewing and Quilting Expo I attended this past April.  The fabric is part of theGalleria Knit Collection.

NOT THIS TIME!!  This is the first time that I have started, followed through and finished an actual printed pattern bought from a store.  I am very happy with how it came out. 

It was great to only have to use TWO pieces to construct this top.

I used washers from my local hardware store as pattern weights.  They are crochetednow.
