How to make your own PJ Pants without a pattern – Easy Beginner Sewing Project

I have been making pj pants for the kids to match all of my EasyPress shirt creations.  It’s become quite comical, really.  They know when they go to Lolli’s they will have new pjs to wear and they have a lot of fun helping me pick out the fabric.

Ace is always a Dinosaur kinda guy!  He must have 6-7 pairs of different dino sets.  Evie, on the other hand, is more of a Minnie Girl.

I have made so many pairs of pjs, that I’ve got my own special method and a few cheater tricks that make it easier, for me, to whip up a pair in about 10 minutes form start to finish.

Don’t worry, you don’t need a pattern (we will make our own…psst.. I don’t even know how to read a real pattern).

Overwhelmingly, everytime I post a picture of one of my EasyPress shirt creations, paired with a matching set of pants – I get asked to create a tutorial for the pants…. so, without further ado… and keeping in mind that I am NOT A SEAMSTRESS.  This is a really easy, beginner sewist tutorial… and I came up with a technique that works for me.  There are probably a few dozen things technically wrong with my method, but you know my motto… “do what works for you”.  

If you’re interested in this really easy, cheater method… here’s a step by step video tutorial for you.  I can’t wait to see your creations on Facebook and Instagram… you’re going to tag me, right?

Here’s the video:

How to Create Cut Files from Drawings

Did you know you can use your very own handmade drawings to create cut files you can cut with your Cricut?

I draw this “shop girl” on my Ipad and changed her into a cut file which I was then able to cut out in Cricut Iron On.  I used my EasyPress to make this adorable one of a kind tote bag!  Fun, huh!

I did the same thing with this little cutie patootie!  She will look so cute on Evie’s PJ set.

You don’t need to know how to draw, really.  I found an image online and used that for inspiration to redraw and create this one.

This little lady I did draw freehand, and let me just say… I can’t draw, but the app makes it possible to draw, erase, draw it again…. erase it again… and so on.  Believe me, I did plenty of both!

How fun would it be to have your kids create a drawing, import it into Cricut Design Space, and then iron the design onto a cute tote bag for grandma?  I would love to receive a gift like that.  Wouldn’t your kids think it awesome to sport a shirt with their very own creation?

So, are you ready for a tutorial?  I cannot wait to see what you make!

How to Iron on a Canvas – Cricut EasyPress 2

The new Cricut EasyPress 2 (available for purchase this Fall) was released at the Cricut Makeathon a couple of weeks ago!  We were all so excited about the new features!  Besides the new color (how about that amazing flamingo pink/orange), the new EasyPress 2 heats up to 400 degrees, heats up faster (than the prevous model), has a new improved base plate and now has a USB port for future firmware updates.  Already have the Original model?  No worries!  it still does everything it did before and is still an amazing machine (available on Amazon for $109), however, the new EasyPress 2 now comes in 3 sizes: 6 x 7 (great for onsies and hats), the original 9 x 9 and the big daddy of the bunch 10 x 12 (great for adult tshirting.  Yes, Tshirting is a word, a verb rather… the act of making tshirts.

OK… so what is today’s project?  Why it’s a super, duper Canvas Wall Decor “Never Stop Making” design.

Sort of fun, right?  I record the how to video live on my Facebook Page (yes, live is not my thing.. and I meant to do this in my Cricut EasyPress Group, but instead did it on my personal page… Ugh….), but I saved it, edited out some of the chatty stuff and uploaded it to my youtube. Here you go!
