Oh, well that changes everything.....

This week at Brielle's Young Women's activity, the girls learned how to make their own pajama pants.
We went to the fabric store, and after looking at what seemed like every bolt of fabric, Brielle found some blue fleece with cute little pink pigs all over it.

Brielle loves pigs.

She made the pajama pants and they turned out really cute! She comes home from school and immediately changes into them. (and I can't blame her, because they look really soft and comfortable)

Tonight Brielle was attending the birthday party of her friend Audree. She was struggling to think of a present to get her, and I suggested that she make her a pair of pajama pants.
She LOVED the idea, and so off we went to the fabric store.

Again.

She found a cute print with yellow rubber ducks all over it.

As we were looking at the fleece I decided that I wanted to make myself a pair of pajama pants too, so I started looking for a print that I liked.
Brielle really got into this, and was suggesting the most bizarre prints. Bright neon tie dye fabric, bright red with big Christmas lights and big colorful crayons on a black background..........

She was really enjoying herself while thinking of me wearing pajamas made out of these fabrics.

Until I said "Just remember dear, that these pajamas will be what I will be wearing when I drop you off at school in the morning."

She paused, then disappeared around the corner. She returned and handed me a bolt of plain, dark purple fleece.

"Here mom, this is perfect!!"

That's awesome! I think for kicks and giggles you should still make you a pair out of an outrageous print.

P.S. my word verification was "chork" and I know I'm a few days late, but DH had the perfect definition and I just had to share.

Chork - not chicken, not pork. Kind of what they use in hot dogs.

My hubby says his mother used to bring him to school in her bathrobe and curlers. Can't beat that for embarrassment!

Teenagers are awesome. And if you find fabric with cupcakes or chocolates on it, then I expect a pair of pajama pants, too.

That's awesome!! Do you use a pattern for the pajama pants?? Or do you use an old pair for the pattern?
