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.
I admit to a fascination with bats. Perhaps it's because I'm so nearsighted and think it might be nice to have radar when I've knocked my eyeglasses off the nightstand. Or, maybe I like how they swoop in nearly silent loops through the night skies above our hay field. They don't scare me in the least. Anything gobbling up spiders and bugs is okay in my book. Our very cute Halloween Mobile boasts five friendly bats with felt fangs and button eyes. Stuffed with polyester fiber fill, they are soft and chubby and ready to fly above your door to welcome trick-or-treaters.
A little wicked glamour and a wicked little spider make a spellbinding mask. It's what the most beguiling witches are wearing this season; combining spider web construction with a practical soft fleece backing. Your jeweled spider continues to weave its web while you bewitch those who dare to cross your path.
During American Idol this past season, General Larry Platt gained his fifteen minutes of fame with a wild rendition of the song, Pants on the Ground. "Pants on the ground, pants on the ground, lookin' like a fool, with your pants on the ground." Proving a) we will watch just about anything, and b) these super fast and easy webbing belts are a must-have to keep you and everyone you know from lookin' like a fool.
