I made these PJ pants for my daughter from the pants pattern (with an added back pocket) included in the same pattern pack as the top and dress. I thought it would be fun to make a little pillow to coordinate with her PJs. The owl pillow is my first completely original creations. I just used scrapes from my stash and came up with this. I would make a couple of changes but she still turned out quite cute.
The elastic waist band was quite a chore, though it may have just been first attempt frustrations. One question though, is there some sort of tool that I don’t know about to pull the elastic through the casing? It can’t have to be as difficult as it was.
Pants: Cotton flannel, 3/4" elastic, grosgrain ribbon
Owl pillow: Fleece, cotton flannel, felt, and polyfil
