A little about the fabric I used for these little pajamas: Recently, my husband, son, and I moved to a new town. The move has been nice because it's closer to Nathan's job and it got us out of Toledo and into a smaller community. The town we're in has a little "downtown" area that has several small businesses including one called Beeker's General Store. Beeker's is a sweet, nostalgic general store that has been in business for over 130 years. It reminds me of the Olsen's store in Little House on the Prairie. Anyway, they have a small selection of fabric behind one of the counters and I happened to see this cowboy print by Michael Miller among the more traditional calicos that they stock. I think I'm the only person who has ever purchased this particular fabric from them because the sales lady gave me a look when I said I wanted 2 yards of it. Oh well.
These PJ's show off a perfect example of the detail within the patterns I was talking about. I love the piping around the facing on the pajama tops and the faux fly on the bottoms. For me, these things also helped me to learn new skills to employ when sewing other projects in the future. I mean, how sweet does that faux fly look? I always thought that it would be so hard to create, and fortunately I've had the opportunity to discover that it's really quite simple.
One other thing I've really been enjoying about the new place is our clothes line. It's the perfect spot for pictures of finished projects!
