Sewing is a great love of mine. But, no matter how hard I try gremlins often come into my sewing space uninvited.
My eldest daughter loves cuddly pyjama bottoms. Cuddly,warm,soothing and soft. Her favourite pair came to pieces when she was staying with us a little while back.
So, I thought how hard can making a pair of pyjamas be? Surely not hard. So, I set to work carefully unpicking the well loved pair to use as a pattern.
I ironed them flat and carefully pinned them on some new material and thought I was on a definite roll!
Ok, I worked with the door closed. The Gremlins were not invited in!
I even tacked them carefully together and thought I just had to get the sewing machine out to finish them off!
But, as it folded them up I thought they looked a bit small. But how could they be?
Well my daughter and I are more or less the same size.
Umm . Well the gremlins must have moved the pieces because no matter how I tried to pretend they were fine. They are not!!! Too small,too skimpy too underwhelming. What a shame . I am going to finish them and pop them into the Charity shop here. I hope a size eight pyjama lover walks by .
Bottoms! Bottoms!! Bottoms!!!
