I made a mad dash to finish these pjs in time for Christmas Eve this year.called Paper) on our iPad to draw this little alien dude pictured above. I wanted to use my machine to embroider an alien to go with the little aliens on this great flannel fabric that was gifted to me, pictured below.
It's always mesmerizing to watch the machine stitch out the design.
I love the flames shooting out of the bottom of the spaceship.
I altered the neckline so it wasn't so wide. Note to self: *Next time I need to lower the rise on the pants a bit. And that would mean I would need to lengthen the inseam.*embroidery design that I bought from embroideryonline.com. I really like this Mohawk Skull. I used it on a messenger bag I made for Lucas a couple of years ago. I've never bought an embroidery design from any other company. Maybe I should branch out one of these days.
another messenger bag that I made for Eli forever ago. But this year I realized that Eli is getting bigger and I figured that I had better use it before he gets any taller or I wouldn't have enough fabric to make anything out of it for him. I love it. Although he hardly ever wears the shirt because he hardly ever wears a shirt, period, when he's inside the house.
a stabilizer to the inside of the garment to cover up the pocket top-stitching, but the stabilizer started to fall off after the first wash. And that was without even running it through the drier.
Anyway, this year's Christmas pajamas were a success. Next year I should start earlier on them so I don't have the freak-out sew-super-quick session like I did this year. Who am I kidding? That's the only way I get things done. Merry Christmas!!
