sew off challenge: Heather Ross Pajama Pants
it’s becoming tradition for me to sew pajama pants for this kid during KCWC. i sewed polka dot flannel ones last fall, and fox ones last spring. since both were big on him when i made them, they actually still fit and are in regular rotation! i figured why not add another pair to the mix?
the pattern is the oliver + s bedtime story pajamas, which is now available digitally! it’s a fantastic and quick beginner pattern. i made them in the 18-24 month size in a little under an hour (actually stuck to the time frame this time!).
i have a funny relationship with my “special” fabric. i love having it, but i struggle with using it. frankly sometimes it’s just easier to give it away to a friend, then it doesn’t weigh on me! kinda weird, eh?
this sew off challenge was great in that it got me to use some of this far far away ii clothes on the line fabric that i’ve had squirreled away for while. it’s AMAZING stuff. it’s a cotton-linen blend, but very lightweight. it’s the kind of fabric you want your kids to wear all the time because it’s so dang soft and perfect.
the bindings are also far far away ii, golden moons. it’s a heavier linen that i first used for his bucket hat (and hey, her bucket hat was heather ross too – i guess i use it more than i think!). i kinda love that neither of the prints here are overtly “boy,” but they still look great together and on him.

there’s the clincher right there. when he’s tired, he sucks his thumb and rubs his feet together. i can’t stop snuggling him!!
just two more challenges left, then i’ll likely collapse from exhaustion. Rae is one tough competitor! check out her adorable nursery versery pj pants and little C roaring like a lion – what a cutie pie. i need to track down some nursery versery, stat!
