OK, so, NOT a challenging recon to be sure, but it came out really cute. I got a new machine that came with a gathering foot so I had to try making shirred ruffles around the bottom. I also tried my hand at appliqu, which is harder than I thought Huh

My first post. Smiley I just had the same idea! I have a 1 year old boy (Elvis). At my baby shower I got TONS of receiving blankets. He never used one. He hates blankets on him all together. So now that fall is coming I figured I could turn them all into PJ pants to keep him warm at night. Mommies sure are crafty when it comes to saving some money and reusing perfectly good stuff. Those are so cute. I'm sure she loves them. Smiley

you did an awesome job on that applique. It is hard at first but the more you do it the easier it gets. Love the pants too. I have some blankets set aside for this reason but only my son wears pajamas and don't think he'd like the ruffles hehe.

Those are so cute. Are you going to sew some of the fabric on a long sleeve plain shirt so that she has a set? That would be adorable.

I have a post somewhere here that has a couple pair that I made for my little ones. My son's ended up being ginormous and the other pair I made will probably be out grown before its cold enough for Anna to wear them.

Oh wow I'm so jealous! If only I knew how to sew when my son was a baby I wouldn't have used all those blankets as rags, this is a much better Idea.

I can't wait to try this as well.  Some of my "good" receiving blankets match existing night gowns, so I'm saving in case we have another baby or to give to someone else, but I have several cheapy ones, and a big need for jammies.  I also like the idea of doing an applique on a shirt to make a set.
