Minky lounge pants
My cousin was expecting a baby in August and I set in my mind that it was going to be a girl, I went out and bought numerous amounts of girly fabric so that I could make her baby lots of pretty things. Well she managed to stress herself out and ended up having her baby 7 weeks early and yep, it's a boy!
So here I am stuck with all these pink fabrics, so what to do?
Thankfully a few friends had birthdays this month, and it seems extra cold this winter and my bestie Lee Lee is always whining how freezing she is so I attempted (and I use that word loosely) to make her a pair of pants with the some pink Minky fabric.
Firstly, I have never really made clothes, let alone adult sized.
Secondly, Minky is super messy - was covered in fluff, the room was covered in fluff, pink fluff was everywhere!
The end result - Happy Birthday Lee Lee Minky lounge pants was received with a huge smile (and finally fluff free)
