KCWC Day Six and Seven: Pajamas

I burned out after a week of sewing and on Saturday sewed just because I had to not because I wanted to. Some bloggers are sad that it's over but to be honest I am kind of relieved. I could not do it any longer. Having three little kids and finishing one thing a day was a little hard. That being said I am glad that I've done it and I will definitely do it again when the time comes for the KCWC Fall (and hopefully I have all my stuff by then).

For day six I tackled the Sleepover Pajamas by Oliver + S. I've done them before so I was hoping the project will go fast. It did indeed go fast but not without problems. As I said I burned out and I had to drag myself to finish with dignity. I made some mistakes but was not ready to go back and fix them. Good that mistakes were minor and didn't require me to redo things. I could have but I didn't.


This is the only picture I have of the PJ's as my camera's battery died in the middle of taking pictures. Emma refused to take her pajamas while I charged the battery and then spilled pizza sauce during lunch on her pajama top. So there will be no pictures ever until I do the laundry and iron pj's to make them presentable again.

As I said the pattern is Sleepover Pajamas from Oliver + S. I made size 5 again as I already had the pattern traced in this size. I made it out of a thrifted sheet. It was my first time sewing out of a thrifted sheet and I loved it. It was big enough for the pj's (with quite a lot left) and so very soft and all for $1.99. Great! The yellow polkadot fabric for the facings and cuffs is from JoAnn's.
For day seven I just sewed the buttons on and called it done and done.

Now back to real life. I am sure Matt is happy to have me back and I am thrilled can get back to making dinners and doing laundry.


That's pretty much how the place looked throughout the week. And it's just the morning.


  1. Um, that is clean for my house. I am burned out too. I love the pajamas. They look so cool and inviting.

  2. aww...I'll miss your posts.
    Cool idea to sew using a sheet. If I sewed, I'd think about doing that! :)
