W.I.P. Wednesday: PJs and Pizzelles

I have graduated to sewing curves! And the zigzag stitch! And elastic! These Eiffel Tower pajama pants were made with the Sew Easy Pajama Pants pattern and with the help of the lovely Sarah. They are an xmas gift for my sis (who loves Paris, hence the pattern).

In addition to my normal holiday baking, I also attempted vegan pizzelles for the first time (and subsequently learned that I've been pronouncing "pizzelle" incorrectly my whole life). The whole process was a bit finicky, but with a little more work, I think I'll have it mastered! I used a variation of Emilie's recipe, with both anise and ground almonds.


My next project? Baby bibs and an animal friends fabric book for my good friend who is expecting a little one on Feb 14th! And maybe a pair of pajama pants for myself :-)

Holiday baking post is up next....

I love those pj pants! So adorable, and the fabric is so sweet! I need to find some like that to make for my mum- she loves Paris, too!
And you're going to make an "Animal Friends" book - how sweet! They are very fun to make.
Have a wonderful Christmas!!

How funny- I just got a pizzelle iron for Hannukah, so I was going to try that recipe too! I'm going to make mine chocolate though... Can't wait to taste them for myself! :)

Well I've never even HEARD of pizelles so I guess I'm probably gonna pronounce it wrong too ;) I'm guessing also that a pizelle is the waffle-y lookin thing? *bluh* and your pants are Lovely! where do you find the time to do all this?!?!
