I bought this plaid flannel fabric at Joanns and it totally reminded me of a Big Stick popsicle. Or a whole box of them.
In fact when I was in labor with Lucy at the hospital, all I wanted was a Big Stick (pineapple, orange, and cherry popsicle). And my sweet husband rushed off to 7-Eleven to find one for me. Aren’t husbands the best?
I sort of wish these were real pants he could wear to school but since Pajama day is coming up, I made him some Big Stick pjs. His schoolmates will see the pink and orange afterall.
I used the Basic Kid pants tutorial and extended the sides and length of the pattern to make it a little roomier for pjs. And guess what goes great with simple Pj pants?? A Basic Tee! And also Rae’s Flashback Tee!
“Mom why are my jammies taped to the wall?”
“It’s for my blog”
“What’s a blog?”
That’s for another day.
I always sew a label to the back so he knows which way to put them on.
And this time around I made them especially long so he can wear them next year too.
Then we tried them out on the big bed with our favorite pig pal. A friend made this cute orange guy a few years ago when we lived in California. Isn’t he great?? Owen loved tossing him at my lens.
And just for fun, I made a pair of these too. Cause who doesn’t want Darth and C3PO on their bum?
Have a great Monday!
