Sharks!

I found this fleecy print at JoAnns and immediately brought it to the cutting table. The sales person smiled at my fabric and remarked that “this must be for a little boy”. I quickly corrected her. Who wouldn’t want this fabric?!

I chose to make the Margot pajama pants from Tilly and the Buttons‘ book Love at First Stitch. I hadn’t made anything from the book yet since all the patterns were printed double sided and hadn’t yet figured out the best way to copy the patterns. An Instagram friend generously gifted me Swedish tracing paper (along with a book and wonder tape!) and solved my problem.

No special techniques here; I finished the raw edges with a zig-zag stitch and made a drawstring from left over shark fabric. I still have plenty of scraps left that I want to put to good use; this fabric is too silly to go to waste.

Currently we’re having a bit of a snow storm here in Indy so these pants have already been put to use. I’m sure they’ll get a lot more use this winter. Now what to do with the left over sharks….
