Mary Ashley's slumber party over the weekend was a big milestone for us and the little girls who joined us for the weekend. I wanted to do something special to initiate the girls into this fun girlhood tradition, so I decided to make pajamas for them -- eight pairs in all!
I loved the idea of making something they could wear during the party. And I hope they will remember fondly their time at our house when they wear them again -- maybe even to their next slumber party!
For the pajama pants, I used McCall's pattern 3906, shortening the length to include coordinating ruffles. (I could save a lot of time sewing if I didn't love ruffles so much!) I found the pink swirl flannel at Hancock Fabrics. The turquoise micro-check used for the ruffles and bow at the waist came from local sewing shop Beth's Heirloom Sewing. For the tops, I used long-sleeve tees from Target. These super-soft shirts can be worn with pajama pants or to school. I embroidered the shirts with different cupcake appliques from Bunnycup Embroidery. Of course, the Birthday Girl got the cupcake with a candle!
Bring on the sweet dreams!
