Pyjamas from a Duvet Set (Re-fashion)
Well I kept on staring at the duvet set that I bought from the charity shop and it was telling me it should be pyjama bottoms. Other ideas were passing through my mind but this one was recurring so I got on and made them. They were complete in under an hour and I am sure they will be really comfy to sit around in the evening. I am not a fan of nightwear but it is good to wear around the house when you come home and just want to be comfortable. I usually change out of work clothes into jeans when I get in to walk the dogs but late evening these will be ideal.
I had to put them on to get a clear daytime shot.
Obviously I won't be wearing them outside with shoes normally! I am only on the back garden here.
So that can be my 'me made May' for today, I have been having a look and the only rules I can see is that you wear something handmade by yourself every day. I have been doing that but forgetting to photograph and post, so that is today sorted.
We have had a lovely lunch I made the curried aubergine slices from the Prashad at Home cook book I got from the library, meat eaters had chicken and a taste of the veggie food. We also had chickpea burgers that I made and froze the other day, a home made slaw of all kinds of veg whizzed through the food processor (a present from my husband on Friday) potatoes and chutney. Desert is the berry vegan cheese cake I made last week and froze, off to eat that now!
