I was commissioned to make custom christmas pajamas for a local family. Simple right? Except that I couldn’t find the material I was looking for in the time frame available to me. So, what did I decide to do?
I made my own.
Thousands upon thousands of hand painted polka dots later, I had the fabric. A textured flannel, both soft and gently rough. A fabric that activates the sense of touch. A fabric with an unusual and unique handle.
With the monumental task of making my fabric over, I still had half the project left…to, with the aid of my sewing machine, turn the fabric into something wearable. Here are the results…
A baby sleep sack/dress and 4 pairs of pajamas for 2 adults and two kids.
One of a kind – because no one else is fool enough to do it – hand painted polka dot pajamas for the whole family.
