Yesterday when Kali and I went to Lafayette we stopped at Hobby Lobby and picked out fabric for Kali’s pajama pants project. This is for her second sewing lesson and we wanted to get it in before she went back to school after the Christmas and New Years Holidays. She picked a pretty fabric with lavender and purple butterflies accented in lime green with black outlines. There are a few flowers mixed in that are pretty shades of light blue, white and aqua. She chose a purple tee shirt and pretty lilac colored flip flops that match nicely with her fabric. We also found dotted grosgrain ribbon in coordinating colors and a bit of boa feather to put in the middle.
I got her started by pinning and cutting out the fabric (she will learn how to do this soon too) then we were ready to go.
She remembers the sewing steps really well and today she did her own thread cutting. She’s very careful with the pins and scissors.
Here are a few photos of her in her new pajamas and tshirt.
