December has been a very busy month all around. I have been sewing pajama pants like crazy! All in all I made 10 pairs of pj pants/shorts, 1 "Snuggie" and 2 sets of felt play food.
First up the flannel pajamas. I had 5 yards of each of the 3 flannels in the picture above. Out of the argyle print I made 2 pairs of shorts, which includes 1 for me, and 1 pair of pants.
With the dotted flannel I made 2 pairs of shorts, one for my sister above, and 1 pair of pants for myself.
With the brown floral print flannel I made 2 pairs of pants. One for my mom above, and 1 for myself.
I also had 2.5 yds of red flannel for my brothers pj shorts. Originally I was going to make pants for him and my dad but the fabric shrunk so much when I washed it that I didn't have enough.
These are my dad's pj shorts. Again, it was originally 2.5 yards that I bought.
I also made a couple of ribbed scarves. The first is a Notre Dame scarf for my dad. It is navy with gold and green stripes. I cast on 42 stitches and did a K2 P2 pattern. I used 2.5 skeins for this; 2 navy, .25 green and .25 gold. I used Lyon Brand Vanna's Choice Acrylic yarn.
I also made a Chicago Bears scarf for my sisters boyfriend. Again, I cast on 42 stitches with a K2 P2 pattern. I used 2 skeins total, a navy and burnt orange. I used Paton's brand 100% wool yarn.
This is the fleece print I used for the "Snuggie", which I do not have a picture of. I made this for a friend. I used McCall's M5970. I omitted both the front and bottom pockets. I used a total of 3 yards for this. I also have another fleece print that I bought to make myself one. I am going to try to get that done today.
**Updated 8:45pm: I got my "Snuggie" done, using another 3 yards. I also made pj pants for my husband, using another 2.5 yards. Surprisingly I met my original resolution to use half of my stash of 127 yards! More on that tomorrow in my year end review.
