My vacation week is winding down, and no vacation is complete with out a little road trip to visit my best friend, Samantha.While she lives just under an hour away, our busy lives keep us from getting together more than just a few times each year.
Today, we had a plan. Samantha is a novice sewer, and really wanted to advance from basic bags and curtains, and tackle something from a pattern, but she wasn't quite comfortable doing it on her own. She mentioned that she'd love to make pajama pants for her kids and husband, and I agreed that they'd be the perfect pattern to learn on.
Our day began with lunch (in exchange for the Pumpkin tarts I baked her)
When we got back, it was time to get to work
And, in no time (even with the drama of three kids and their after-school mayhem), there was a finished pair of pajama pants.
She's on her own for the next pair, but she'll do fine. She's a natural! Now I need to haul out my machine - I'm in need of some jammies too!
