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!

I love vintage craft books, magazines and materials.  I try to incorporate something "old" into every craft project I do.  I have fun thinking of a new use for things like plastic bags, old jeans, and needlepoint kits I find at thrift stores.

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.

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 : )
