This looks amazing! Thanks for posting the recipe too
Sadly I have a tendency to eat all of my berries on the way home... but I will have to resist next time so I can make this!  Cheesy

I made this with a lot of help from purringcat  Grin   
I'm new to crocheting so took part in a few personal swaps and got these amazing octopuses!

I had the easy part to make it into a mobile  Wink so a big thanks to purringcat!

Just for fun - What the baby will see!

Thank you for looking
14  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 52 ENTRIES / PJ's from a bed sheet ... my first sewing project on: July 06, 2010 07:02:10 AM
I would like to point out this is the first thing I've ever sown apart from a sock rabbit (got a amazing sewing machine for my birthday and have been sewing lines on a pillow case for 2weeks to test all the different stitches (274!) plucking up the courage to actually sew something. So then I threw my self in the deep end with no pattern either! (oh and I moved house in the middle of it also hence the terrible photographs!)
I though the most obvious choice for this challenge would be a sun dress... so I ran a mile from then  Wink

I had a hideous twin sheet from when I was little lying around, unsure of what to do with it... and I needed some nice comfy short to sit around the house crafting in now its (finally) got to summer... so these were born!

Trust me its me that's wonky and not the PJ's!

There are pockets in the shorts and a wide waist band (elasticated on the back to gather it while leaving the front taught)

With all this excitement I forgot to take a before shot... but the sheet was all stripes of the same pattern
This is one of the two rectangles I started with for the top folded over once I decided on the length.

In progress-

Originally the front and back where going to be the same height, but I didn't like the look of the chunky straps and all the straight edges! so the back was shortened and the gathering on the front extended up...

in progress shot (haven't finished the shorts here)
Thanks for looking!
And please remember to vote for your favourite in the challenge!

On a side note- I enjoyed this so much I've decided to make a dressing gown from another sheet! I started this last night so know it wont be done in time but wanted to share it anyway ..
The back (without sleeves)-

The front with Pj's-

There is now two pockets on the front, white stitching details along the top of these, and down the edge of the front flap. and a white button closure.

I'm glad you like him  Grin he was woven into sea weed (strips melted and then cut in half to lay around him a little nicer as some of the thickness was then reduced) I have drawn up the outline of the next seahorse so will set about colouring him in shortly

Thank you but alas I am not a teacher in the making... maybe I'll hold some crafting classes someday if someone will allow me!  Wink

Hehe I wrapped the gift in a bow, placed a post-it note on the top with a small note and left it on her desk for her to find after her holiday at the end of term. She emailed me to let me know she received it and to thank me for a lovely surprise as she apparently loved them Grin
