I won this fabric as a contestant in the Super Online Sewing Match II hosted by Sew Mama Sew last summer. I ended up being a simi-finalist. You can see my entries here, here, and here. For the last entry, we had to make Carolyn Pajamas by Coset Case Files. Out of the 4 remaining contestants, I was eliminated in this round. I was disappointed of course, but I was proud to have made it that far.
Anyway, after each elimination, the remaining contestants were gifted coupons from the Sew Mama Sew sponsors. I chose this cotton knit fabric with the abstract giraffe design with one of my coupons. With this lovely soft fabric, I made a pair of Carolyn pajama bottoms. There wasn’t enough fabric for the top, so I purchasedd a couple of RTW soft tee’s to go with them.
My daughter is a petite five foot two each person, so I made a few alterations to the size 8 pattern. I shortened it by about 2 inches on the lengthen/shorten line and also shortened about 3/4 inch above the crotch.
Three of our daughters, along with their significant others, and our two grandchildren came to visit us during the holidays. We had a spectacular time!
I made my youngest daughter four pillows for her couch. I used scraps I had left over from the shirts I made for Lecien Fabric. I’ll blog about the pillows very soon!
Happy New year to all!
