In less than two weeks, the population of our little cul de sac will decrease by two. J and my neighbor’s son will start college. It’s last and my first. (Though C is right behind them as he starts his senior year of high school.) I could not let the boys go off to college without a little something from my sewing room. My neighbor’s son will study music. I was thrilled to find the music note flannel at JoAnn’s. I spotted the monster fabric when I bought the music note flannel. As a joke, I sent J a photo via text messaging. He has always been a rather serious lad, preferring solid colored pj pants. I nearly jumped for joy when he texted back to say he thought the monster fabric would be fun for college. Yay! I am so happy to see him embracing his fun side and enjoying himself more.
The pattern is my tried and true Ottobre pj pants pattern. I would love to know how many times I have used it. It is hard to see in the wild prints, but there is a side pocket so the boys can keep their cell phones handy at all times… for texting their moms every single day.
