PJ Pants

While I was visiting Rachel, I made my first pair of PJ pants.  I made the pants for Emily from an old pair of PJ pants that I had, that were getting worn out.  I figured there was enough good cloth to make Emily a pair of pants, and then she would have matching PJ pants with Rachel.  Me and Rachel got the PJ pants a few years ago as Christmas presents from Mindee.

I used a pair of Emily's PJ pants as a pattern, adding a few inches at the top to allow me to make a place for the elastic to go.  The pants only took a few hours to make (it would have been shorter if Rachel had not fallen asleep when she was supposed to be telling me what to do.)

 The fabric I used had a small nail-polish stain, so I sewed on a small patch to cover the stain.  I matched the stripes, so it would be hidden.

I also added a pocket to the front, because Emily loves pockets.  It was a nice wide pocket, so she could easily put her had in, and maybe carry things.

I know those pants!

You did a really good job with the patch.

And I love the pocket. Those pants look really good!

So so so so cute!! I love them! Nicely done covering the fingernail polish stain too, and the pocket is adorable!

I was not asleep. I was lying in bed with morning sickness, telling you what to do next.
