Raccoons, racoons, racoons. Raccoons everywhere! I love them. To my mind, they are slightly sassy lady raccoons. Out for a good time. In a forest of maracas.
Have you ever sewn with fabric that has faces? Lots of faces? I don’t have a lot of experience in this particular field, there were the lilo ladies but they didn’t fret me anywhere near as much as these nocturnal naughties. I did not want to cut up or sew through anyone’s face. Or anyone’s tail come to that. Any road, with 1.90 meters of narrowness and a brutal attitude to the truncation of tails and the bifurcation of faces I fashioned a PJ top and some sleep shorts.
I could fit the left over fabric into the teeny-tiny top pocket that you can’t see because of all the furry, sassy faces.
Back vent. Drafty!
As fer the sleep shorts. They are Darcy Boxer Shorts, another freebie pattern. I am a pursuer of PDFs, a paper-piecer a… nah I’m all alliterated out.
A little thing that I did notice whilst magic taping these together:
Burda Top – 36 sheets of A4 paper. One side of A4 cutting and sewing instructions. Not a full side either and not a diagram or illustration to be found.
Darcy Boxers – 13 sheets of A4 paper, 5 sides of sewing instructions, diagrams and all.
To end. Pixelated phone photos of me in me jim-jams and a HUGE thank you to Anne for hosting Jungle January!
