penguin pajamas finished

Whew...my “need to make” list has finally dwindled down to a select few items that need to be done BEFORE Christmas and I am thinking I deserve a sweet pair of Winter Flannel Pajamas...

JUST for ME!

I'm gonna let you in a little secret...I love me some Flannel...


Soft and Warm Flannel...you just can't go wrong with that combination!

It would not be out of the ordinary to see me working in my studio...sporting a pair of Flannel Pajamas until noon!  It's one of my favorite perks about working from home! 

Who's with me here?

I found a really nice 2 piece set of flannel pajamas at the JC Penney's on line catalog...while I was sipping my morning coffee and sporting a pair of flannel pajamas from last year!  Go figure!

See...I told you...

Flannel Pajamas are my “thing”!

Let's get started...

Because I wanted my PJ's to be a “winter” theme and not a “Christmas” theme...I chose to use the Skating Penguin Applique design in the 4x4 inch size.  I also added the word”BRRR” to bottom edge...so I chose the Thick as Thieves Font in the 1 inch size.

After I combined the Font with my Skating Penguin in my Software...I went ahead and printed out a template and then used that template to find the “perfect” spot on the left side of my Pajama top.  Here's what my paper template looks like...


YES, I just print my template in black and white...no wasting color ink here!

Having this template cut out allows me to move it around on my pajama top (while I have it on) to find the perfect placement...not too HIGH or too CLOSE to my armpit!  LOL!

I prepared my 5x7 Fast Frame with Sticky Stabilizer and then fused a piece of No Show Fusible Mesh on the backside of where I will be putting my design. 

Design Stats...

Finished Size...4.5” wide X 4.25” tall

9,003 stitches

Here she goes...

In addition to my red clippies...I also added a couple Flower Head Pins for some “extra added hold”...NO moving or shifting here!

This little Skating Penguin has only 4 fabric panels, and it stitched up really quick,...however, it still really packs a punch with the details.  I just love him bunches!

Now...I'm REALLY ready for the Winter Holidays...

Sipping my morning coffee...

And working in my new Flannel Pajamas till NOON!

That's what I call a REAL plan!
