Remember a few weeks ago when I was telling you all about my plans to make my friend some silk pajamas for Christmas? Well, I followed my own advice, took my time, and I finished them earlier this week! You can see my creation here but we’ll all have to wait a bit longer to see them on the recipient herself!
I’ve already made a few Marcel sleep masks with fun embroidery on the fronts and a hoodie for my nephew, so now I’ve only only got two or three more presents to sew up before I have to ship them off. I’ve been so tempted to add in a silky bathrobe for myself now that we have our new pattern! Working with the silk for the pajamas reminded me just how luxurious silk feels, and I was really jealous that I had to give these away and not keep them for myself! I’ve got some silk leftover from other projects so perhaps it’s time to fit a “me gift” into my Christmas sewing plans, too!
