KCWC Day One-ish and PJ Pants Giveaway

Last week I took the pledge to participate in Elsie Marley's Kids Clothes Week Challenge. It's pretty straightforward - sew for one hour every day on kid's clothes for one week (7 days). Just because it's straightforward does not make it simple. It sounds simple but after a full day with all its challenges and unplanned issues, finding an hour can be tough. Last night I had some computer issues that took priority, but I didn't shirk my pledge. I did my hour, it just started at 10:30pm - yikes!

Awhile back I did a swap with a friend in Finland and got some fantastic jersey prints to use for Lil' Hoot. I found an awesome One Size Fits Many PJ Pants tutorial over at From An Igloo. Now, Lil' Hoot is much more petite than "Many" so I decided to try out the pattern in its original size before altering it for her small stature. I have been collecting jersey remnants from the half off bins at Jo-Ann's and Hancock Fabrics for just such an occasion.

And this, my friends, is what happens when you sew too far past bed time.
Seams on the outside rather than in. Oops!

No worries - I'm Queen of the Seam Ripper. The cuffs are fixed and the pants are finished! And, since I don't have a little boy to go with these pants - I'm giving them away! *Sizing - the length can be easily altered but is currently ~ 23" waist to bottom of the cuff. The waist is currently at 20" but I can easily take it in for your child. It's VERY stretchy.
