I'm a little tea pot


Last Thursday I had my final sewing class. This PJ was from the pattern that we were instructed to use. I purchased a tea pot print flannel and over sized buttons from Jo-anns for mine. The class was a valuable lesson in following patterns and how to use fusible web for collars, button line ups, and an interesting fold over cuff. I decided to use different colors of embroidery thread for my buttons since they were so large normal thread didn't seem strong enough to hold them. I can't wait for a cooler night so that I can sleep cozy in my new PJs.

Yes, weirdbunny it was really good for that. It was through the community college (but off campus and non credit) and was only one night a week, for a total five classes. It was very helpful.
