My primary craft for a long while was knitting.
Knitting, though beautiful and portable, can take a while.
I may not ever be able to knit all four kiddies a sweater in enough time for them to actually fit it.
But, I can whip up quick and inexpensive sewing projects like these pj pants and they will love me just as much ;o)
I used an old simplicity pattern, but these are so simple anyone could make them without one.
It was a toddler pattern and my oldest is 8. She is very slim, so I only had to lengthen the pattern to make hers. As you can see, they are all too long. Which was on purpose, I hadn’t pre-washed the fabric. They have worn and shrunk nicely. Hubby is still waiting on his ;o)
