In June, I found some ladybug fleece for sale at Wal-mart, along with my apron fabric and pattern. For those of you who don't know, I am obsessed with ladybugs. I have ladybugs everywhere. When I turned eighteen, I tried to convince my Dad to let me buy, for $20 on E-bay, a box of 5,000 chilled ladybugs to release in our basement for the party. Needless to say, I was given a resounding "no."
The plan was to make sweatpants, but I didn't have a pattern, so I just got a couple of yards. I found a pattern on instructables (here). And then, I ran into trouble. I didn't have any pajama pants that fit -- I had one pair that was too big and one that was too small -- so it was hard to judge the size of the legs. Then I did one leg backwards, so I had to cut it open, stitch chunks together, and do it again. I ended up with chunks of extra fabric on the top of the back. But it worked, overall. They've been sitting in my great room waist-band-less for a few months, and I finally got around to finishing them up.
I'm glad I did! They're super comfortable!
