Thrifty Threads #10 - PJ Pants
Yesterday I was in Superstore browsing at their clothes. They have such nice pj bottoms right now. Only $12. I really needed new ones. But self-control prevailed (this time). I have so much fabric in my stash including some soft cotton knits so I cut apart my old bottoms, used them for a pattern (but I made them smaller - yeah!) and put these together in about 90 minutes. That includes taking care of children in between. And they are so comfortable. I'm wearing them right now. My husband likes them. He called me clever. Clever. I'll take it as a compliment.
The cost for these was about $5 for the fabric. I ordered it online awhile back and it came out to about $3.50/yd including shipping.
To me the real savings is the $12 I could have spent. Yes, I did buy the fabric for them in the past but it could have just stayed in my stash too. That's how I explain it to my husband anyway :-)
