Iron Craft #17: F Is For...

This week's challenge:
"Let's get back to an alphabet challenge and cook up some projects that start wirh the letter "F". (Courtesy of Just Crafty Enough).

I decided to go with an easy one this week. Balancing a new job, summer activities with the kids and creative pursuits have proven a little too much for me lately. So flannelette it is! :)

Actually, for those in the US it's just flannel. I have no idea why they call it flannelette in Canada.

Anyhoo.... Logan needed new jammies. Most of his pajama sets are turning into shorts. They started out as pants. Honestly they did. The boy just keeps growing and growing.

Several weeks ago we went to the fabric store and Logan chose some flannelette that he liked. I washed it and then it sat on my cutting table. Iron Craft was the perfect spur to get me going.

I made this pajama set:

As you can see, the race cars is the "F" part of the project - Flannelette. The green is just a t-shirt knit. Both a super soft and comfy. Logan has worn these pajamas once already and said he had a good sleep because they were so soft.


So there you have it! I actually got off my butt and finished a project. Phew!
