Valentine's Day PJs

I snagged the Simplicity 2771 pattern at Hancock's 5 for $5 sale last month and decided everyone needed a pair for Valentine's day (myself included)!  I just made bottoms because I usually just wear a tee or tank with my pajamas and I knew that my hubby would never wear a matching set.

I fell in love with this dog flannel from Walmart.  I bought pink for my niece Madeline and cream for me.  It isn't the nicest quality flannel, but the price was right and it is CUTE!

These PJ bottoms are extremely high-waisted, so I took about 3" off the top for mine and my husband's.  I cut Madeline's out as called for on the pattern.

I added a grosgrain ribben to the elastic wasteband.  It was a fun excuse to play with the automatic button hole on my new machine.  I was excited to use my iron on "made with love by" labels that I got for Christmas.

For Brad's, I ordered a moose print flannel from  The difference in quality is HUGE compared to the WalMart flannel.

I made the drawstring for his out of leftover flannel.  He seems to like them.  I caught him with the camera just as he got out of bed this morning:

This was such a fun project!  They're quick and easy to put together.  I think that I have enought moose flannel to made Lucy the dog PJs that are included with the pattern too.

Its a rainy, chilly Sunday in SC and we're both still lounging around in our PJ bottoms!
