Injecting Some Pink

In the middle of all the boy sewing I’ve been doing, I thought it might be a good idea to throw in something pink for my daughter.  We found 2 1/2 yds of this wonderfully soft pink flannel at the thrift shop and I knew Anna would love it instantly — and she did!  Since she’s grown so much this year, it was time to make a new pair of pj pants.

I actually also started work on a short sleeve version of the Easy Linen Shirt from Sewing for Boys with the extra fabric to match the pj pants.  I was even piecing bits of left over fabric to make sure I was using all the scraps and getting the right size.  But when I sat down at the machine to actually start assembling I realized I’d made a very big mistake.  Sometimes I’m such a dork!  I realized that I’d cut two left fronts and no right!  I forgot to turn the pattern piece over when I was pinning and cutting.  When I finished laughing at myself, I finished sewing the pants but the shirt will have to wait for another time when I can figure out if I have enough bits to piece together to correct my mistake…  Oh well!  We all have those days!  🙂
