sleep pants for the Hubby!
On to the sleep pants. While browsing JoAnn Fabrics, I found a remnant of Buffalo Bills fleece. I knew it may not be enough for a full pair of pants, but my hubby doesn't mind wearing different things around the house. I got the pattern for these sleep pants, with pockets, from McCalls. I made the front of the pants with the Bills fleece, and the back of the pants with a coordinating blue fleece. The results were great, and I only paid $8.50 for the fleece!! This was my second experience with making pants, and I remembered to pay close attention to the front and back pannels, as I had to do a lot of ripping on my first pair of pants. (Somehow I managed to sew a front pannel to a front pannel on the left side of the pants and a back pannel to a back pannel on the right side of the pants!) Anyways, Jimmy loves the pants and the pockets turned out fantastic.
