Refashioned pyjamas

Following a frenzy of sewing activity this week (spurred on no doubt by the giant leap forward of actually posting an entry on my sewing blog), may I present one of my latest projects:

Eva's Pyjama Trousers
As you can probably tell Eva loves them, and is snuggled up in bed wearing them right now.  I used a pattern from the gorgeous Heather Ross book Weekend Sewing: More Than 40 Projects and Ideas for Inspired Stitching
although I had to scale it down somewhat to fit a toddler. 

I think I may applique a little of the leftover shirt fabric onto a plain t-shirt to make a matching top when I get chance.

These pyjamas have literally cost me nothing in materials - the elastic was taken from an old pair of pyjamas, and even the grosgrain ribbon trim at the bottom of the legs had been saved from a gift wrapping.  Ultimate recycling!

All good things...

I've been planning on writing a blog for a ridiculously long time now, but somehow I have allowed the small distractions in life (by which I mainly mean my beloved daughters, Eva and Bethan) to hinder my progress.

Well, having conclusively proved that this blog is not going to write itself, I am finally knuckling down and putting fingers to world!

So, after months of anticipation my blog finally has its first post.  Time to crack open the champagne!  Too extravagent?  Point taken.  More tea anyone?
