Those Lion sheets are circa 1985 or 86.  I had them in my bedroom in grade school! 
I made matching curtains and a comforter from a second set of those sheets.  The pillow case had a great single lion's face on it.
I LOVE what you've done with them.   I wonder if my mom still has that set somewhere.....

That is awesome!  I'm disappointed I only found the one sheet from the set, because the set sounds pretty awesome. I hope your mom is like mine and kept everything from your childhood : )

Thank you : )  The crocheting was the most fun for me,  that's what I'm really in to doing, the sewing I'm still trying to get the hang of.

Hello all,
I decided to make PJ's for this project because, well, sheets are perfect for pajamas.

 

They are so comfortable.  I loosely used this website to make the bottoms: http://diyfashion.about.com/od/diypants/qt/Pajama_Pants.htm

This is one of my first sewing projects and I think it went pretty well.  The pants were made from a super sweet lion print sheet I found at Goodwill, and the top was made from a pillow case. 









The pants have a ribbon drawstring and a loop in back for easy hanging up or to attach a lion tail perhaps?


I crocheted shells on the bottom of the pants and shirt with cotton yarn.  I also crocheted the straps for the top. 







It was a ton of fun and didn't take too long.  These are definitely my new favorite PJ's!  I have some left over sheet material that I plan on making a sleeping mask with : ) I had more pictures of the "making of" but I can not find my digital camera cord.  Hope you enjoy!
