{new pajamas, old pajamas}


These flannel frogs, for Tilly, are the first pajamas I've made. What, I cut out the pattern upside down? No, no, they're Australian frogs.

The pattern came from this tutorial (via Pinterest). Very easy. Very forgiving.


These are my pajamas. My favourite/oldest/softest/most hideous pajamas. As Justin so tactfully put it yesterday, "Don't you have lots of nice pajamas? Don't you own a sewing machine?" Apparently the thread-bare, lop-sided look isn't for everyone. Perhaps they'll be given a new life as toddler-sized 'jamas. Just one more night in them, please...

They're not the wrong way up for Tilly, which clearly was your intention when making them that way.

(PS Hi, I'm a lurker who loves your blog and your crafts and took a fair bit of inspiration from you this last Christmas. Hope you don't mind me saying hi!)

Thanks for saying hi! I'm so glad you enjoy reading. And yes, you're right, Tilly loves that the frogs are looking at her -- there's an upside to upside-down!

I recently made a fitted crib sheet out of that same fabric. My son couldn't stop dancing on it and spinning. Clearly, those are hypnotic frogs.
