whipup roundup

Another quiet-ish Sunday morning – whipped up 3 pairs of pajama pants for the kids this morning – some nice summery crisp cotton shorts. After croissants and scrambled eggs and coffee for breakfast and in a relaxed mode knowing that we cleaned the house yesterday, I can sit and breath and do some emails and blogging.

Thank you all for entering the Amy Butler pattern giveaway – more giveaways coming up next week …

Kath, sorry this is off-topic …. I’m impressed with your PJ efforts. Do you sew the elastic in or do a casing? And how do you make it the right tightness? I’ve read somewhere to cut the elastic so it’s 3cm less than the child’s waist measurement. does this sound about right to you?

Hi Eeloh

with the elastic – I just hold it around the child and ask how they like it – some like it loose – some like it tight – some like it around their hips and not their waists at all – here is a rule of thumb ‘Elastic around your waist should be your waist size minus 2 inches. It works every time.’

Here is an old tute I wrote http://handyprojects.blogspot.com/search?q=pants
