Sneak Pyjama Peek

I am on the finishing straight for the Pyjama Party!  Only 2 tops still to make….  I thought I’d let you in on a sneak peek to see how it’s going so far.  I have been able to resist popping into the shops so far on this project, all the fabric has come out of my stash, as has the elastic and all the trimmings.

Aren't friends great? This is a fab selection of vintage lace my best buddy sent me from the States for my birthday. Some of these will find their way onto the pyjamas.

This is what I had in mind for Daughters 1&2:

Daughter no 2 is having these:

Blue and white print cotton shorts with lace trim

I’m keeping the top secret for now, but here is a peek of the shorts for Daughter no 1:

Red & black print cotton shorts with black lace trim

I haven’t put lace or anything on my pj’s, so they will wait for tomorrow’s reveal!  True to the ethos of this blog, I have pattern cut all the pyjama patterns, but as I am running out of time, I am going to cheat with the top for my pj’s and use a commercial pattern.  Today I need to finish the top for Daughter no 1 and for me, then I’m all done!  How is everyone else getting on?

ME-Made-May 2012

Looking for trouble again, I have barely started the Pyjama Party challenge, and here I am again, signing up for another!  It is time to get more of my own creations out of the cupboard and out in the open.  Also time to get more made, but that’s another story all together.

I, Anne W, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May ’12.  I will endeavour to wear as many handmade items (barring underwear and shoes!) each day as proves feasible on the day, for the duration of May 2012.

So, what exactly does that entail??  Well…  I cannot guarantee that everything I will wear will be made by me.  I do love my jeans, so there is no way I can remeve them from my wardrobe for a whole month, but apart from that, as long as the weather plays ball, I should have enough to last a month without substituting shop-bought stuff.  This challenge will hopefully make me think about how I wear things, what I combine and how I accessorise.  I might even figure out my “style”, something we all have problems with, as mentioned by Karen.

With only a week and a bit to go until May, who else has signed up?
