sheet pants

Wednesday, September 10, 2008

So yesterday it was all about the linens.  Organizing and folding them.  I was so happy to see a sheet that we don't use.  With a cute top.  Well you know, that sort of put me back on the sidetrack trail
Next thing you know, I was gathering the necessary materials to make another pair of lounge pants.   Because everyone needs a new pair for the fall. 

I couldn't wait to put them on.  And did so as we were getting the kids to bed.  And breezing by my husband in the hallway, he mumbled, "nice sheet pants".   I laughed so hard it hurt.
I couldn't believe he knew these were sheets.  However, considering these were his sheets from when he was single, I guess it would have been hard to forget.

I won't be back in this space until sometime next week.
Be good, friends.

  11. I love those lounge pants...I can't find the pattern in Canada (or at least in my city) and even if I did...I just can't take up sewing...I can't :( Not enough hours in the day for me and I am trying to finish Anniki :)

  15. Ahhh! I was JUST going to ask you about the adorable "sheet pants" that you made a while back. I think there is a photo of you in them at the fridge, and then one with you and your sister (???) lounging in them.

    A girlfriend and I just picked up some fab vintage sheets and she was in love with the idea of making lounge pants with them.

    Where is that pattern again? if you wouldn't mind. =)

  24. There's something sort of ironic about you mking pants for you from B's bachelor sheets.

  25. I think you need to open up a "Sheet Pant" Etsy store so I can buy some. I'm so horrendous with a sewing machine I couldn't even attempt these. :)

  26. There's a lesson in there somewhere: bachelor sheets to wife pants. Hmmm...

    Hello! Thanks for the information regarding the wooden plates. I have Acacia cups and have been looking for plates to match. I called and ordered - they are so lovely to deal with. They also wanted to know how I found them, I gave them your website. Cheers!
