Because of the unusually high temperatures here over the last week, the upstairs of my house has been unbearably hot (and the sewing/blogging room even hotter!). Thus, an unexpected blog break. I actually took advantage of the heat (since I couldn't do any sewing) to send my little machine to the Bernina spa. Hopefully, it will be ready to come home tomorrow and I can get back to my plethora of projects.

Anyway, I do have a project to share. I finished a pair of pajama pants for The Boy:

KS 3126, toddler pajama pants
The pattern is Kwik Sew 3126. I cut a 3T, and shortened the length by 1.5". Easiest pattern EVER! Only 2 pieces, and they went together super-quick (only 45 minutes from start to finish, and next time I know it will be even quicker!). And the fit was great. They even fit over his bulky nighttime cloth diaper with no problem.

Since I was having a hard time telling the front from the back, I went ahead and added a little label. I need to start doing that for everything I sew, I think!

And, of course, the happy customer. He LOVES his new pajama pants and asks for them every night. They are nice and lightweight for summer (though not light enough for 3-digit temps... those were diaper-only nights!). Another pair of these is going on my to-sew list, stat!


  1. They are so cute! Glad you are back :)

  2. Nice jammie pants! Love the pterodactyl print!

    And thank goodness for spell checks. ;-)

  3. so cute! The boy looks awful proud.

  4. He is so cute and so are the pants.

    I HATE the heat!!!! We have been very lucky so far this summer but usually the worst part of the summer here is later August and September.

  5. Cute pants! I only recently was able to get back into the sewing room after our temperatures finally cooled down. It is too difficult to sew with temperatures in the high 90's and low 100's. Whew!
