Dino pajama top
The flannel wilderness fabric is the softest flannel I've ever felt. It is really nice and plush and washed great. I added cool vintage buttons to the mock fly on these too.
Fabric: "Timber Lodge Flannel Forest Animals Nature" Robert Kaufman. 100% cotton woven. From fabric.com in July 2014. 1.5 yards for $8.90
The shirt I sized up to a 152. It was a fast sew and I was able to utilize my new binder attachment for my coverstitch. I also coverstitched the sleeves in the flat before sewing them together. This made sewing the shirt a breeze. The fabric is a really beefy and soft; cotton/lycra jersey. 1.25 yards. I purchased it in Aug 2014 from Fashionfabricsclub for only $5.50. They advertised it as 10 oz. 95% cotton 5% lycra. You really take a chance every time you order from them and I was pleasantly surprised with this fabric. Even fabrics with the same description are totally different sometimes when I order from them. They are so cheap though so I like to take the chance.
Total for this pj outfit: $14.40
Vintage McCall's 3041
sewn one other time in Pac Man
I wanted to sew this one more time before T grew out of it. I have it in a size 10 and I really push it by sewing that size! He wears a 12 or sometimes a 14 now. I left the previous alterations for the top but added 1" to the width of the shorts. They seem to fit him much better than the last shorts I made with this pattern. I'm sad that I won't be making this anymore because it is a wonderful pattern and the instructions are amazing. I sewed it mostly with my vintage Kenmore, but serged the seams after sewing. I made sure to line up those crazy ninjas across the side seams and then forgot to take a picture to show you!
Fabric: 1 yard Pure Organic Solid Black, Kaufman, 100% cotton woven. I purchased this in Oct 2012 for pants for K but never got to it. I was happy to use it up. I did have to cut the shorts on the cross-grain to get all pieces to fit, though. $8.98. The red is "Ninjas Don't Sweat" in Red by Windham Fabrics, 100% cotton woven. 1 yard. I picked it up Sept 2014 from a Facebook group with this pj pattern in mind. $6.00. Total for the vintage pj set: $14.98
I enjoyed sewing all these for Mr. T and I'm happy to add to his pj wardrobe.

So I had my scope (endoscopy) Monday and everything went ok. They took a few biopsies and I have to wait on those. My throat and stomach are pretty darn sore from that. So it's just a waiting game again.
Anyway, I want to wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving!! Enjoy your festivities tomorrow :-)
