My Creative Space - Cosy PJ's

Lil Misses Cosy Warm footed PJs

The pattern: Kwik Sew 3527
Bought online from Sewing
and what a palava!!! Took a whole 2 days just to get the correct software to download it, and lots emails back and forth with their support team.... and after asking for a refund many times...
It finally worked.  

As for the pattern itself, although not all the pattern lined up, when I joined together the tiled A4s,
the construction itself was very simple to put together...
so after all that arghhh!!  I am actually really happy with it!

I used some of the boys fleece that I left over...
hence the patched look
and now that my pink fleece has arrived I intend to make a couple more... because these are super warm, and lil miss actually giggles when I dress her in them for bed time!

Also Little J has begged for a pair to replace his store bought ones
which he refuses to let go of, I have had to cut the feet off just so he can squeeze into them.... But I don't mind because I can relate....
I had a love affair with my blue terry towelling nightie, it was size 4 and I wore it till I was atleast 9, it started life as a long dress and ended up as a mini when I finally gave in....
 that must have been the bane of my mums life.

Anyways moving on.....
linking up to more creative spaces here

Aww these look sooo cute. I loved it when my girls were little dressing them up in these, they kept them so nice and toasty. Glad you got the pattern to finally work, sounds a bit frustrating:) Enjoy making some pink ones:)
