Monkey Pajamas

I tried making my monkey a pair of pajamas.   I haven't worked with knits since I was a 4-H kid and my mom would "chain" me to the machine and make me sew.

 Thank heaven for ball point needles

 and differential feed. 

What a difference it made when serging the edges.  I'm still using the good ol' bernette funlock.  I love this machine!

The easiest part for me was adding the ribbing on the legs because I've done it so many times when making our Busy Bee bibs.  I didn't take time to match the stripes on this pair.  I only cut out the bottoms so I could see if the size worked for her.    

Too big!  I'll try a smaller size.

She just had to pull them up as far as she could!

 I'll put them in the closet for a couple of years.
