Even in our sleep we’re big Virginia Tech fans. I thought PJ needed some pjs to reflect that.
The shirt is made from an old shirt of mine that I cut up and repurposed. I love that I didn’t have to hem the sleeves or bottom hem, and I was able to cut off the neck binding and reattach it too. Score. I like kids’ pjs to be fitted, so I didn’t allow any ease in the side seams.
My friend Kyra found a remnant of Virginia Tech fabric and knew I had to have it (she was right). There was just enough to eek out a pair of 2T Big Butt Baby Pants from Rae. I added about 3 inches to the length. I’m pretty sure that 2T size would fit a skinny 4 year old if you just keep adding to the length. Especially once you’re done with the cloth diapers that produce the aforementioned “big butt”.
I used my Silhouette to cut out white flocked heat transfer material and ironed that sucker on. P loves to “pet” the velvety texture :)
Flocked heat transfer tip: Wait for the transfer to cool completely before very carefully peeling off the clear transfer vinyl. Otherwise the flocked part will probably lift up too. That’s bad.
As I was making these I realized that they would be pretty awesome baby gifts. I could even do it in different fabric for all the misguided, deprived non-Virginia Tech fans.
