I decided to make a pair of pyjamas for Jack. I used this tutorial from My Cotton Creations, and I used a gorgeously soft and fluffy fleece fabric (with a very cute dinosaur print!).
I have to say, this tutorial is amazing. It's so easy to follow, even for a complete beginner like me. The only problem I had was hemming the bottom cuffs as they were so small! Next time I might hem them before I sew them up. With a bigger child it probably wouldn't be a problem though.

After stabbing myself in the hands with pins several dozen times, I got it finished without bleeding all over it!
|Maybe I should have picked up the fabric scraps from the floor before I took a photo.|
I don't know how well it shows in these pictures but I did have some problems with the armpits and the neckline is a little wide, but it isn't a problem on this top as Jack hates having tight neck holes pulled over his head.
I think overall this was a success. I'm very proud of myself for managing to make something wearable on my first try, and most importantly Jack loves them.
