My sewing type is best described as impatient and lazy. Which, as you can imagine, results in sub-par outcomes.
The one thing I have discovered are nearly impossible to mess up however, are pajama bottoms. And bonus: they're super fast and super easy (and way less expensive than most store-bought pjs, which for a family with growing boys is great.)
I've used this tutorial from MyCottonCreations blog for a while now in my pj-making adventures, and it has never failed me:
I typically pick up 1-1.5 yard remnants of fleece here and there to save for this project. $3 in fabric and about 20 minutes is all it takes. And for some reason my boys think I'm the coolest mom ever when I whip up a new pair. I have a feeling my days of enjoying that title are numbered, but for now, I'll bask.
