It’s Spring in the Midwest!
The days are longer and starting to become warmer, but the nights are still chilly. I thought what would be great to make for this type of weather? Knowing summer will be here soon, a sweater was not the answer nor pants. I thought about a dress, but I just wasn’t feeling choosing a style. Pajamas! Easy, fun pretty. I did say summer was coming, but it’s still cold at night. I thought about air conditioning and how cold it can be. Flannel!!! Flannel Pajamas with a hint of summer fun. Flannel is a great fabric. It’s not just for winter. It’s colorful, inexpensive and breathable cotton!💖 Off to the store I went to get some flannel and I found a gem of a fabric. I opted for some shorts.
Then I reached for my go to PJ pattern and figured I’d make a “Bedroom Jacket” to match. I was off! Me and Mano my Janome Memory Craft 15000. This machine is so smooth sewing flannel.

Added a pink ribbon and All finished!
Wait!!! This cute pair deserves a matching top. My first attempt was a HUGE fail, to big, to ugly and a huge mess. NO PICTURE’s of the wadder here!! So, I sat staring 👀 at jam’s thinking what could I make to match this set? Finally, it dawned on me that Mano is almighty! This machine turns into an embroidery unit! I got out the Janome AcuDesign software and found the perfect design for $1! I found some fabric in my stash, set up my machine and got busy.
