my little baby sister turns 12 tomorrow. she's taller than me already, but that's of no concern!!

she saw my bob the builder jammies and wanted some of her own, mum had a dig around in her cupboards and came up with one forever friends duvet cover and one 101 dalmations sheet.

I took both, but while out charity shop hopping a few weeks ago I came across a pink and purple Camo bedset. Loo owns a pink and purple camo teepee and enjoys sleeping in it in the summer months, but sometimes gets cold so I thought hey! why not make her jammies match her tent?!

here is Loo in the tent (I have permission from mum to use the photo)

and here is one of the tent

here are the jammies, as yet I don't have an action photo but that will be oline tomorrow of sunday, GMT.

all in one, pink camo jammies!!!

I even found something natty in hobbycraft whiole I was searching for new sewing machine needles

and here is the nightie, it has a ruffled two layer skirt (it was a vallance), very grown up top part (but still little girl enough for a child, i dont want her to grow up too fast,she's still too cute for that)

I'll be properly finishing the arm and leg ends on the jammies tomorrow because i need her to be in them to get the hemlines right, and I'll be sewing on the straps and adjusting the elastic on the nightie tomorrow too.

oooo I hope she likes them! total outlay for the gift was 4 (8 if you count the funky letters), time put in was about 4 hours, love added is immesurable.

my tip for making them: get yourself some paper overalls and cut them along the seams.

open them out, use them as the pattern. don't forget the elastic you'll find at the back, remove it for making the pattern, but put it back in when making the finished article. it makes it more comfortable.

I've used two types, but by far the easiest to sew was the kimberley clark kleedguard A20

I am going to use a hooded set at some point, have some hoodie jammies.


also, if removed carefully the zippers on those things can be reused so tbh you get your money's worth lol!!

they should be available from places which specialise in decorating/cleaning supplies.
