Painting, laughing, and telling really corny jokes
Drying in the breeze
Once dry, I did a quick rinse/ spin cycle on the rectangles and threw them into the dryer to set the paint. After a movie and lights out, I spent an hour at the machine turning the rectangles into simple drawstring bags. With colorful ribbon ties, the girls got to take home a little bag that they designed. My girls stuff their p.j.'s into the bags and hang them on the bed posts each morning. (I let Irish Jig paint a bag, too!)
Completed P.J. bags
Jazz also asked for new p.j.'s for her slumber party. Of course I said yes! She raided my stash and found an awesomely fun art print sent by Nana. A simple elastic waist pattern and a fancy cut swatch for the tee shirt....and you have:
Love the crayon print!
