1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Re: More flannel PJ pants with appliqued tees for my son. on: July 26, 2007 03:38:44 AM
You are so right about hand made pj's. They last forever and are so inexpensive to make. 20+ years ago, I made sweatshirts for my husband and two small sons.  Had left over fabric so I made pj tops and bottoms for the younger son.  He wore them until he grew out of them, then I passed them on to the little boy I babysat.  He loved wearing "Michael's jammies"   
Unbelievable how expensive good pj's are.  With my "stash" I could probably whip up a few pairs for myself for winter.

Your pic brought back memories. In the 70's we were foster parents to a little girl who came in a similar outfit.  She stayed 6 mo. so she grew out of it, I save it for future little girls and sent her back to mom with new duds.
The outfit was not reversible, but the same pattern, and the pique  fabric was muted yellow and white flowers.  Had a little pair of elastic pants which fit over the diaper.
Thanks for the memories.

littlebrowndog, one thing, with embroidery or cross stitch, you do not use knots at all.  When you are starting, hold the end of the thread  on the wrong side of the fabric and make your other stitches over the ends to secure them.  When ending a color, make the needle go under some stitches on the wrong side to secure that thread.  Makes a much neater project.

Years ago I purchased a cloth which is to be used to cover food to be blessed on Holy Saturday.  It said "Christ is Risen" and had dec. edging.
does anyone have this pattern?

Really nice purses can be made from jeans skirts.
I made one with 6 pockets, then lined it with another skirt with 7 more pockets.  Love it!!

You definitely have talent.  Hope you go back to it.
Nature pictures are great.  You do not have to photograph people, the world is beautiful and there are lots of beautiful pictures to be made.

Nice pics.
Is it not funny how we gravitate to sunrises/sunsets.
When in AZ a few years ago, our condo faced east and I was up before sunrise to get pics each morning.  Have done the same for Va. Beach, and sunset pics in San Diego.  Have gotten some wonderful shots.
Keep up the good work.
And thank you for helping in MS after Katrina.  Volunteers are the backbone of this great country.  No where else do ordinary folks do so much for the needy.

Great inspiration. There are so many different sizes of containers, would be worth it to buy one new and use the top in this manner.
Like the fact that it has the indentation, so small prarts do not roll off.
Have a lap desk from years ago, but it has a perfectly flat top and it would not be easy to keep things from falling off.

Is this pattern available?  Am just a beginner at crocheting and might be able to make this if I had a pattern.
