One moldy bathroom & a stomach flu the whole family was taken down with later & today the house is finally back in order enough to get back to blogging. Whew!
This morning’s project was just a quickie but it’s one of those things that afterwards I went, “Huh, why didn’t I do this sooner?”I feel like I spend so much money on pj’s for Samster, constantly changing sizes & then throw in the seasonal change & well, you get the picture. I hated to replace all her long-sleeve 2T cotton footie pj’s since I just bought them so instead I “summerized” them. If you have some scissors & a sewing machine you can do the same.Start off by making 3 cuts (or just two if you only want to make it short-sleeve but keep the footies, I did this to one pair since I know how I get trigger happy with the a/c in my 3rd trimester)
*Two cut off the ribbing at the wrist
Take your ribbing & re-attach it by stitching the 3 edges together, two from the ribbing & one from the pj. (you can see a bit more detail about attaching ribbing here) I chose to attach mine at the base of the short sleeve when I was leaving on the footies & at the ankle when I took the footies off. Also I should point at that since the pj’s are knit they won’t unravel regardless, you could just cut them off & be done, it just adds a nice finished look to re-attach the ribbing. Below is a pic of the wrist ribbing after being reattached at the ankle.That’s it! 10-minutes worth of work & I’ve got short-sleeve summer cotton pajamas. Nice.
