Sew Busy!!

I am not bustling in malls, standing in lines, or really buying much of anything for Christmas this year, but I am sew busy!!  ( I know my titles can be a little corny, sorry, I just can’t help myself!)

I have been sewing up a storm and my latest creations have been a flurry of more up-cycled Merino PJs.

  1. I was reading through previous posts, making some jammies, and saw this post. Love the Christmas jammies. Do you have instructions for those? Adorable!

    • Hi Jenny– The Christmas jammy’s Were the most improved pair. Basically I cut the sleeves and made those the legs. Then I cut out sleeves from the sides of the sweater with the bottom ribbing being the cuffs. This let just enough to make kind of a onesie with the rest of the sweater. The legs were attached in the style of ‘underwear pants’ like the green ones I made. If you like I can send photos or make a post with more details. Hope that helps– let me know how it goes!!
