Pocket pj's

I tested a new pattern last week for Miss Lily. It was the pocket pj's from Blank Slate. 
I have sewn Melissas patterns before an absolutely love them. They are fabulous!  These are great if you have special fabric you are hoarding and want to use but don't want to use a lot of it. 
I used a flannel I got from Joanna's. I had 3/4 a yard of the coordinate and 3yds of the print. I had extra left over from the print for a size 8. 

These pjs have cute coordinating cuffs at the sleeves and pants. 

Great large pockets for bed time treasures. 
I love that these are a pullover too, the placket makes that possible. 

There is a version for shorts as well. If using a nice light cotton these would make awesome summer pjs. 

The pattern can be found here.

Give them a try! Blank slate is amazing.

Have a great day.

Halloween, gifts and fall coats

I am a little late to share my Halloween costumes. 
I made the girls, lilys is a Snow White . I use the precious dress from scientific seamstress and the Avry as tink I used SIG delaney. 

I been thought to prepare for cool weather. 
The weather has gotten a little chilli so I made some fall coats for the girls. 
I used the downtown duffle from peek a boo 

I made my own buttons and toggles for this. I also have one cut for jack. I love this pattern. Her instructions are clear and easy to read. She arranges her patterns in a way to save in printing and ink. 

Recent bday gift I did from my childhood grease area on FF&L

Definitely planning on making some for my girls. 
Avry is in need of some winter dresses and lily needs shirts. After I finish jacks coat, get some Christmas sewing done as well as stuff do the shop. 

Hope you have a great day
