Last Spring, we created a small series called Sweet Softies, which included a trio of stuffed animal friends: Eggy Pop, Funny Bunny and Cuddly Cat. We combined nubby chenille with the smooth, retro-inspired cotton of Heather Bailey's Nicey Jane for a sweet and soft vintage look, like treasured toys you might have found in Grandma's attic. We're reintroducing them to you today because we think they would make the perfect Easter basket pals.
Things to do today: 1) Make cool grocery list/coupon holder from Sew4Home; 2) With increased level of organization from said cool grocery list/coupon holder, complete chores in record time; 3) Eat chocolates; 4) Send any leftover chocolates to Sew4Home. I think that pretty much covers it. Our cute little case has a perfectly-sized vinyl window pocket that displays your shopping list, a handy credit card pocket on the opposite side and a zippered inside pouch to hold coupons and more. Yes... you can sew vinyl with your home sewing machine!
Our thanks to our creative friends at our Signature Sponsor, Janome for sharing this project with us. It was created last year for a special New Sewists Series they put together, and the instructions show you how to make pajama pants without a pattern; simply grab your favorite current pair and use them as a template. We added a jazzy bottom accent cuff to ours so we could mix and match our beautiful Michael Miller Bonnes Amies fabrics. This is a perfect project for beginners: super fast, easy and instantly gratifying. We thought it would be great fun to surprise the whole family on Christmas morning with matching PJ pants. I recruited one of the cutest families I know to be our models, and the rest is dreamy history.
