In preparation for the cold/snow/ice storm approaching, I have been thinking about things to keep us all warm. Bryce and I were doing some shopping at one of my favorite stores, Menards, this morning when I stumbled across this:
A fleece blanket for $1.98. Despite its claims, I was not at all confident in its superior quality, nor its durability, but I couldn't pass it up for the price and knew exactly what I wanted to do with it. I recently saw a tutorial on making simple pajama pants and thought this was just about at my sewing ability. So, while Bryce took his nap this afternoon, I got to work. I was surprised to find this really was an easy project, and also, thankfully, quite a forgiving project too. Now don't look too closely; they're certainly not perfect, but good enough for the amount of time I had, plus I know the recipients' standards aren't overly picky!
And, so for .99 cents each, the kiddos each have a new pair of pajama pants. I told Kari she could wear them to school tomorrow to "celebrate" the snowstorm.
