Pajama Pants and School Uniforms with Brother Home Sewing

L1090269  This week I put my Brother Innov-is 990D Combination Sewing and Embroidery machine to really great use! My son Joey is a wonderful kid, but like all kids, he can be forgetful at times.

L1090267I live in fear of him losing his school sweater and jacket as they are expensive and hard to replace. And they can get switched around at school even if you write the kids’ names on the inner label! So I went ahead and embroidered his name on the front of both the jacket and cardigan and I think they came out really great! Look how happy he looks with his own customized uniform!

L1090273Another really fun thing I created this week with my awesome Innov-is 990D machine are two really cool pairs of custom pajama pants! I have been working on a video tutorial to show you how to easily create these for yourself.  I’m so excited for these new creations that wanted to give you guys a little sneak peek at them now! Check out these pants!

L1090255The first pair I created was basically a practice pair that I made to test the pattern. I made them out of some seasonal Day of the Dead stretchy polyester fabric from my local Parisina fabric store. They always have such unique and colorful fabric options!

L1090261I picked up this great print featuring a potpourri of Mexican sugar skulls, papel picado, marigold flowers and yummy pastries and created some seriously funky pajama pants. I love them so much I’ve actually been wearing them out with a tank top and jean jacket. They are super comfortable! The second pair I made out of an extremely comfortable fabric that Joey chose – super soft baby blue fleece – and I am wearing them as we speak! Haven’t worn them out yet but I am tempted to!

L1090274 I used the Innov-is 990D combination sewing and embroidery machine to sew and applique the pants with a cute Tinkerbell design that I downloaded from iBroidery.com and loaded onto my machine easily with a USB stick!L1090251 - Version 2There are so many wonderful designs to choose from! Brother is Official Licensee of Disney Embroidery Designs and the only manufacturer to offer embroidery machines with built-in Disney designs as well as downloadable Disney designs on their exclusive embroidery download site, iBroidery.com.
