My “fast and fun” project took a different turn today. My neighbor, recipient of the famous Oz pants and Project Runway pants, fell in love with some Pez fabric on the Fabric.com website. I offered to make them for her, but she asked if I could teach her how to make her own. Convert someone to the wonders of sewing and fabric? Of course!!!!
She did a fantastic job. Of course, we used the Ottobre Woman pattern for pajama pants. Since I had used this pattern for her the Oz and Project Runway pants, there were no fitting issues to worry about. We added a cell phone pocket. The first seam was a little wobbly, but she quickly got the hang of “steering” the sewing machine. I was impressed at how quickly she was able to anticipate what needed to be done next. In about three hours, she had a new pair of pajama pants. A modeled photo has been promised.
After she got home, I got an instant message from her with a link to more fabric. She wants a pair of wizard pants to wear to the next Harry Potter movie. I would love to find some of the “real” Harry Potter fabric that was sold a few years ago. If not, there is plenty of generic wizard fabric available. It appears another one has been bitten by the sewing bug. Yay!
