  • Welcome to my blog!

    Hi! I'm Traci. I'm a nursing student and CNA who loves quilting, knitting, cross stitch, and the great outdoors. In my pre-scrubs life, I owned Real Photography, and you can still see my old wedding and portrait photography site here .

    I've created a map that shows links to our camping/hiking/general family fun review posts that you can find here. It's pretty much the coolest thing on this site. Thanks, Google!

    I great big puffy heart *love* comments, so please let me know you visited! I try to always reply!

pajama pants for will

The other night Nic complained that Will never seems to have any clean pajama pants.  This is because I recently noticed that most of Will’s pajama pants come to just below his knee, and so while putting away laundry I’ve been tossing the worst of the outgrown pajama bottoms into the closet (a shrine to outgrown clothes) instead of his dresser.  The result of all this ‘organizing’ is that Will is badly in need of pajama bottoms.

So I took some decade-old Alexander Henry prints (and a more recent 1/2 yard clearance purchase) and my trusty Cranky Pants Skillz, and broke out the serger.  I went the cheater way and used a rolled hem for the cuffs, and the two pants and pair of shorts all came together in an hour.

(My favorite part about the pants?  They’re gender neutral so I’ll get to use them for Ellie, too…although she’ll no doubt be 10 when they fit her!)

(PS–if you’re a new subscriber, thanks!  I will be drawing a winner for the contest Friday!)
