Its been a cold and rainy long weekend, and rainy days need new flannie pyjammies to lounge about in!
I usually try to avoid matchy matchy twin stuff, but this space invaders fabric was pretty much the only flannelette in spotlight that wasn’t overly girly or babyish, and if I’m honest I know it bothers me more than them. So Sam got identical pants, but with a different top.
And ha ha yes, I realised the little space invaders were upside down halfway through sewing the pants together. Shows how much I know about old school video games. But Sam and Archie don’t know anything about video games either, so I figure it doesn’t really matter. They’re happy, I’m happy.
The top’s are just plain basic tees from Target, with a stylised invader appliqued on the front in some random fabric from the stash. I kept the alignment to match the pants, even if it is upside down! The fact that I had exactly the right colours probably says something about the size of my growing fabric stash. I blame an attempt to buy less yarn last year.
There has also been other sewing, knitting and cake-baking, not to mention a big lamb and vegie curry in the slow cooker. Not sure when I turned into a 1950’s housewife, but it was a pretty good long weekend considering we’ve all been stuck inside for much of it with a serious case of cabin fever. I really hope thats the rain over for a few weeks, I’ve pretty much used up every indoor entertainment trick I have up my sleeve the past few days!
