pajama party

My students have finished their half semester with me so I got a bit snap happy with the camera. 
The last lesson is often a mad scramble of threading elastic through waistlines and adding the final embellishments.  The table is a sea of colour with fabrics, ribbons and buttons everywhere. Machines always chew someone’s fabric or mysteriously become totally unthreaded.  I need the patience of a saint to rethread several overlockers in a row.  We always get there by the end though and the journey is worth it.

The project was one I often do with beginner sewers – Pajama sets.  We were all quite proud of the finished garments.
