It was my brother's birthday earlier this week, and he's a HUGE Batman fan. I went to Spotlight to get some Batman material to make him some PJs from, but decided that the line was too long at the dressmaking counter to purchase it. Figured I'd go back in early the next day, and pick up the fabric then.

Unbeknownst to me, someone else purchased the REST of the lovely Batman fabric that afternoon, and when I went in the following day... Alas, no fabric for me. So after going to THREE other Spotlight stores, and TWO Lincraft stores, I finally quit and decided to stencil my own.

Cutting out the stencils took a while, and trying to secretly paint without him finding out what I was doing was a bit of a toughie, but it all worked out in the end. Pyjamas were stencilled, cut, sewn and completed by 11:45pm - the night before his birthday! YAY!

Here I am painstakenly stencilling the Batman logo a squillion times

And here's a Pic of my bro, being a bit of a loser...

He does love them though, so I guess that's a bonus!

Thanks for looking, comments, criticims, etc are more than welcome!

I do not know what the original fabric was like. We do not have those stores around here (LA> CA) but yours came out fantastic. I am sure he does love them. You get the Great Sister prize.

magic happens
