animal pajamas

Again with the pajamas, I know!  But that's what he needed.  I also had this animal fabric laying around since 2005 and needed to do something with it or get rid of it. 

The shirt is freezer paper stenciled on a 90 minute shirt both ideas I found from Dana at MADE.  I know now I will never ever get tired of making the 90 minute shirt.  I can get one done in about 60 minutes now, and the color combos are endless!

I've had a little less time this week, Travis is now in a toddler bed.  Some of the time he lays right down and goes to sleep, other times he runs out of bed, and I put him back, and this pattern goes on until he passes out from exhaustion!  He's one determined little bugger.

Here he is helping take the crib apart with his toy drill.
linking up to this today:

Right now I've got a few sewing projects going on.  When Travis goes in for his nap I'm not sure what to work on!  I'm thinking of making some gifts for the kids to put away for Christmas.  I'll have to work on those secretly.  For Maura I've been meaning to make Clucky the Chook, so that's in the works.  I'm thinking Travis would like some quilted letters, so I started on those too.  I'll post the pictures as I complete them.  It may be a little while because I just ordered even more new patterns and I'm having idea overload at the moment.  See you soon!


  1. Kim, he is so stinkin' cute! :)

    Blog makeover looksgreat, by the way! Love the header!

  2. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I admire your sewing skills. That is one craft I'm woefully bad at. Go figure since all my clothes were handmade until I got to college.

  3. These pajamas are adorable! I love the fabric. Doesn't it feel so good to finally use fabric you've had lying around for years?!

  4. This is so cute. I think that animals are so perfect for little boys. I bet he loves his new PJ's.

    I'd love it if you linked up this project at my Top-toberfest Show and Tell. I'm celebrating shirts all week long. Feel free to link up as many posts as you'd like (so long as they are shirt related).


  5. I adore your little red head. We kept our fingers crossed for red hair when I was pregnant.

    Question - when you use the Silhouette cutting mats, do they get scuffed up from the blades?


  6. Yes, the mats do have to be replaced after a lot of use. I'll probably need to replace mine soon. The heat transfer doesn't use the cutting mats though, it has it's own backing, so no wear and tear there.
