We have PJ Pants!

I just finished three pairs of PJ pants for the Prince. We have Astronauts, Spiderman, and cars.

If you look closely, you may notice that, with the exception of the flannel car pants, these are not the same pants I showed cut out a couple of posts back. That's because I noticed after I cut them, that I cut the fronts too short. My son didn't want to wear high-water PJ pants, and he wasn't too keen about cutting them off and making shorts, either. So, I started over.

I used this pattern:

It includes boys' pajamas in sizes small through large, and mens' in sizes small through extra large. Both the nightshirt and the pants are offered in a long and short version.

The pants were ridiculously easy to make (once I managed to cut them out in the right size that is!) You can see where I added a grosgrain "tag" to help the Prince know which is the front and which is the back. (Do you have any idea how hard it was to find a suitable piece of ribbon in the stash that wasn't a "girlie" color?)

We might make some more of these, and we might even try out the nightshirt one of these days. In the meantime, all of these will count toward the stash fabric contest at PR. This is 7 yards worth of stash right here.
Stay tuned for an update on the Kitty Mittens dress soon.
Oh, and Happy Valentines Day!
