lounging, again

Saturday, May 24, 2008

Just another reminder about those comfortable lounge pants. Just in case you haven't made them yet. After I made the first pair, my mother and sisters wanted a pair.
 I took a sheet from my mothers linen closet, when I was in Florida, for a pair for my mother.  
And another sheet for a pair for my sister, Shelly.
And I used an old worn, most comfortable sheet for a pair for my sister Lisa, who came to visit us for the weekend.  Of course, I needed another pair.

Enjoy your weekend.  I hope it is long and loungy.

  4. Ok, now I want to make these. In fact, I will. I just have to find the perfect pair of sheets, maybe I'll go thrifting soon. They are lovely.
    P.S. I love how you not only just make stuff but actually use it for yourself and family. That's what I call crafting with a purpose!!! Now, can I borrow one of your sisters, please???

  11. I am always looking for some comfy sheets, but I never find really cool vintage sheets around here. I am trying to refrain from online buying, but I may have no choice.

  14. Oh they look so comfy. Also love the mug with something warm and some knitting that's a perfect time right there. I have the pants on my list to make but have you made a skirt or top from a sheet? It is a must. I have hooked on making skirts and am wearing a top that I made from a sheet swap and it's soooo comfy. Check out my blog for more info. Have fun with your sister.

  17. I think they look perfect. If only I could sew. Perhaps I should knit a pair, no that would take way too long. I think I should try again with the sewing machine

  21. I have GOT TO find time to make me some AB loungers! Since I bought my new machine and did the pj class I just haven't done much at all, except sew a little square to add to Kristen's apron top with the knitted bodice (which I must get pics of her in it soon!). You have once again inspired me to try - I must get in that sewing room :)
    You both look very comfy in your loungers.

  24. They look great! I hope to drag my sewing machine out this summer and make some. Love the sheet fabric too.

  25. I've made myself three pairs, guess it's time to start making them for others. How sweet of you.

  26. Very cute. I've seen some great sheets that would make a great pair of jammies!

  27. I so need to make those pants. Especially now that it's summer and the breeze blows through and soft cotton lounge pants are the best. With a nice cup of coffee in the morning? mmmmm.

    :D

  32. that would be a great business...do you know how many old sheets you could find at thrift stores? You couls call it "Sweet Sheet Loungers!" You could open a botique, I'll work there!

  38. I need to make another pair, too! i had the perfect piece of fabric set aside for a pair, but then it fit perfectly for the back of my pink quilt, so now what do I do???? oh, the dilemmas.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Those are awesome! I should really work with my sewing machine more so I actually get better at using it. Is this an easy pattern for the sewing inept?

  43. Oh I'll be trying this out! You can't get this type of freezer paper in the UK so I picked some up in Win Dixie the other day. Even better, the cashier couldn't find the correct price so gave it to us for free!

    ReplyDelete
  47. love the pants...did you use a pattern?

    ReplyDelete
  48. One can never have too many pairs of lounge pants - or cats! I have just made my fourth pair out of hello kitty to wear as pjs.
