It’s March, and technically turning to Autumn in the Southern Hemisphere, so it’s time to start thinking about some longer PJs for Hamster, particularly as he is in a big bed now and never manages to keep a sheet over him.
I love trying new patterns, but as far as PJs go, I just haven’t seen the point in venturing far from Oliver + S sleepover pajamas. You might recall the newspaper print and cat nap versions from almost this time last year. Oh and then a little later there were the flannelette numbers.
After the failed Colette pattern of two weeks ago (which mind you I have worn with great success!) I was glad to get back to a designer I can completely trust and follow the steps almost without thinking!
I picked up some on sale Birch fabric – Set Sail by Jay-Cyn. With a quick google I see it is also on sale at Fabricworm, so be quick!
The contrast bands are made with my left-over fabric from Hamster’s Maude Jacket. I was worried the olive print might dominate too much but I am happy with how it turned out, matching the seagulls so well!
The deal with our photo shoots now is that the little person not being photographed acts as mummy’s assistant and both model and assistant get a lolly at the end as payment. Or sometimes during the shoot – milk bottle entering mouth here.
Said assistant this week was asked to teach Hamster to put his hands on his hips. We have a bit of work to do in that area.
Last I checked that’s your head Ham-bone!
Ok I give up!
Let’s try a jazz pose instead!
Next lesson: facial expressions.
Open wide for the dentist…
Also nailed it! (ok, yes that was still apparently meant to be a scared face)
Yes those legs are a bit long (and looking lop-sided in this next shot, I promise they’re not!), but I want them to last all winter and I know this boy has another growth spurt in him, so 2T it is!
