The Cats Pyjamas

Galumph is a man who really likes lounging around on lazy weekend afternoons, totally comfortably in his pyjamas. He would also, given the choice, have a fat purring cat nearby but alas! allergies have put the kibosh on the cat dream.

So Tyger and I put our heads together when making his Christmas present this year. He might not be able to have a cat, but there's nothing stopping us from making him some cat pyjamas!

Using an ancient Simplicity pattern that I will probably be using when I'm 98 to make myself some jimmyjams, I set Tyger loose with the good scissors and the pins, and lo and behold she pretty much made the pjs all by herself! I helped out with some topstitching and inserting the elastic, but apart from that they are almost 100% child labour. Er, that's a good thing in this instance, right?

PJs #1

Tyger was chuffed with her efforts, and as you can from the pictures the pyjamas have slotted in nicely to the Sunday afternoon lounging sessions.

PJs #2

ha! that's exactly what my bloke looked like on Sunday afternoon too. Minus the awesome child labour pyjamas though. Well done Tyger.

Wow, sewing, knitting. That's one seriously talented 10 (?) year old you have there. Don't know where she gets it from :)

Hey, you know you can be desensitised to cat allergies? It worked well for a friend's son - he went from allergy to having a cat who slept around his neck on his pillow :-) There are also cats that are less allergy-causing than others.
