For the New Year, our local modern quild had an out with the old (fabric), in with the new challenge. I wasn't at the January reveal as that night we were hosting a birthday sleepover for my now 11 year old... I actually didn't start my project until after that but in pursuit of a smaller stash and shorter UFO list this was a needed challenge.
I had some flannel my mom gave me...actually leftovers from pjs from when I was a kid. These pieces were turned into the two pair of pj pants above for my oldest son. The plaid pants were made with Burda 9747 in a size 11 and were pretty true to ready to wear sizes, but the striped pants made with Butterick 5153 in a size 10-12 probably won't fit him until he's 13!
Then I moved on to some embarrassingly old UFOs. Before my youngest son was born (back when I sewed in our unfinished basement) I cut out navy knit pjs for my oldest son and my husband (above) along with another pair of flannel pj pants (below). These are all now complete and my 6 year old is wearing the pjs I cut out before he was born?! Certainly not exciting projects, but yeah! for stash and UFO busting!
And here is a peek at my current WIP... piecing together some Woolies flannel blocks from a few years ago.
And of course the inspiration for all these flannel projects is snow and a cold Midwest winter that is lasting far too long... Hope you have a warm & relaxing weekend wherever you are!
