Patchwork Pouch and Pajama Palooza!

Zippers. Oy. I mean, I can put one in and all but they still kind of bug me. I figure I just need practice. Lots and lots of practice. So I made some stuff with zippers:

I've also been trying to get a handle on my scraps so I figured patchwork zippered pouches were the way to go. Basically, I'm happy with how they turned out.

One is teeny tiny. The patchwork is made up of 1" squares. My loose change now has a happy home.

This little wristlet was made for my daughter. Her favorite color is orange. I'm very happy with this one and will probably end up making a mommy-sized version for myself at some point.

I even added one of my stamped twill tape tags!

Little Miss B gives her seal of approval.

But oh my heavens! - did you see those pajamas?! I mean, they're cute and all, but they're hand-me-downs from her brother. Don't get me wrong, she loves dinosaurs and she doesn't care one bit about the hand-me-down aspect. But boy jammies? She may be a tomboy but she does like to get her girl on. Plus, I did buy this pile o' fabric to make my kiddos some pajama pants. And pajama pants I have MADE!

The shirts were cheapo end-of-season t-shirts that are perfect for jammie tops. The pattern is a basic elastic waist pull-on pant. Super easy, super fast to sew and each pair takes less than a yard of fabric. An awesome combination, just like these two:


  1. I can't get over how much you have been making! And it's all turning out so awesome!

    In regard to hand me downs, well, Zekes been getting Amelias. I tried to only save the boy appropriate ones, but a few girlie ones sneaked in. Poor kid.

    The new pjs turned out great!

  2. Those little patchwork pouches are adorable. =)
