Small Project Challenge- Margot Pyjama Bottoms

Today I'd like to share my latest Small Project Challenge! Some time ago, well, (say it quietly) well over a year ago, I started to make these pjyama bottoms, from Tilly Walnes's fab book, Love At First Stitch. For ages I've really wanted to improve my dress making skills and I really love Tilly's book because she approaches the subject in a simple, easy to understand way, while at the same time offering modern, covetable patterns. 

Soo, I decided I'd gradually work my way through the book, starting with the headscarf (which I've just realised was over two years ago, eek!) and then moving onto the next project, the Margot Pyjama bottoms. I don't get a lot of time for making non-work crafty projects and although I started with good intentions, the pyjama bottoms were soon relegated to the bottom of my craft chest.

However, I'm pleased to say that I've recently had two weeks off from the day job and I'm now determined to finish off all my half made projects and I've finished the pyjama bottoms, yipee!

Food cans make great pattern weights, hehe!

I'm loving wearing my new pyjama bottoms and it's spurred me on to allocate time for non-work related craft projects. 

I'd love to see what you've been making- share your latest projects in the comments!
