I have a basket that overflows, not-so-neatly, with t-shirts too sentimental to give away but too big wear. I save them for future projects but this future rarely comes quickly. With a little extra time this weekend but little energy to start a large project (I'm conquering a sinus infection), I decided to make Logan some pajama shorts. None of these t-shirts is in good enough shape to make shorts that will actually be seen by other people, so they'll just have to be pajamas. (The photos don't lie . . . the t-shirts are really faded.)
I made these pajamas using McCalls #4283, the same pattern that I used for his pajama pants. But since those pants were way too big, I trimmed an inch off each side which seemed to work a lot better.
I made these shorts from my brother's old brown Dale Earnhart t-shirt left over from a Jimmi bag. I used the original hem at the bottom of the shirt because I was lazy and included a regular elastic waistband. I also added a dog applique from the pack of scotties that my sister sent me. Logan spent a whole 3 minutes looking over the dog, so I think it meets his specs.
So nice, I think we have an admirer . . .
