Mr Happy’s favourite winter flannel pyjamas had a split in the knee. They still fit fine but the hole was getting bigger each time he wore them. He was not happy! But I had a brain storm: why not make the Winter pyjamas into Summer pyjamas? So here’s my recycled Summer PJs.
The pants were easy. I just chopped them off then hemmed the raw edge.
I had a T-shirt waiting for decoration so some fabric from the cut off leg became an applique for the front. The edges are trimmed with pinking shears to minimise fraying. I just pinned it in place then stitched around it a couple of times to hold it in place.
The hems of the pants are stitched 3 times just to look pretty. This was a 20 minute project but I’m really pleased with the results.
Mr Happy was so excited about these new PJs that he has worn them every night since I recycled them!
