After a mad burst of productivity last week, I took a bit of time on the weekend to try and recover from my cold and hang out with the family. I did find time on Saturday to make the matching snuggle pants for my husband and son…

But it turns out my family are particularly hard-wearing on pyjamas, apparently. My pants are the only ones that have not got a hole in the back. Note to self: reinforce all seams on future family snuggle pants.

So, I’m setting up a list of things I want to make, starting this week and hopefully not extending years into the future…

1 more pair of pyjama pants each for the family

Beach bag for my mother (yes Mom, I’ll do this first)

Embroidered bags – which means find the right pattern, embroider it and then make the bag, step-by-step photos here for sure

Embroidered pillowcases – I did one yesterday, and I want to embroider all our home pillowcases, just for fun

Aprons – I promised one to a friend, and I haven’t even made one for myself yet

Phew. Time to get sewing, I think.
