Kids Clothing Foxy Top Featuring HeatnBond® Soft Stretch Hem Tape
I am in love with all of the beautiful Girl Charlee knits that they carry in their shop, there is something for everyone. I bet you will have a hard time picking out a favorite. Here is another top that I made for daughter to help her finish out the school year. I knew when I saw the awesome knits from Girl Charlee that she would love another top with these cute little foxes on them.
1 ½ yards of Main fabric-follow cutting directions in the pattern
¼” yard for coordinating print or solid
Simplicity Pattern #3790, erasable marking pen, Iron (Oliso Pro), sewing machine, sharp scissors, other general sewing supplies
Follow all directions for making the top from the Simplicity Pattern. When you get to the steps for hemming the bottom neck and sleeves please see below.
Following the package instructions, fuse the HeatnBond® Soft Stretch Lite Roll to the edge of the wrong side of the neck, sleeve and hem edges. Peel off the paper backing, fold over and heat press the Soft Stretch. Sew according to the pattern instructions. This interfacing gives your hems a nice crisp clean finish that holds up beautifully in the wash.
I love to sew while in my jammies with a cup of coffee close at hand. Henry Glass has the best fabric for making super pajama bottoms that have quilters going wild. Jenifer will show you how easy it is to alter any pattern you have laying around to give it that extra special touch.

1 ½ yrds of Main fabric-follow cutting directions in the pattern
2-4”x size of bottom of pant leg (width of pant leg will depend on pattern)
1”x44”-for tie around the waist (this will vary on waist size a good measurement would be waist plus 24” so you can tie it in a bow)
2” x 4” piece for tie reinforcement
McCalls Pattern P276, erasable marking pen, Iron (Oliso Pro), sewing machine, sharp scissors, other general sewing supplies
Pajama Bottom Sewing Instructions:
Following the package instructions, fuse a 2”x 4” HeatnBond® Lite Weight Interfacing piece to the wrong side of front of the pants. This piece of interfacing will give your fabric the stability for the buttonholes so that the fabric doesn’t rip. Create your buttonholes and finish the casing per the pattern instructions. With right sides together sew along the long edge of the tie and turn. Run the fabric tie through the buttonholes and tie in a bow.
Cut 2” from the bottom of the pants (or desired cuff length). Fold the cuff in half along the long edge and press with wrong sides of the cuff together and stitch with right sides together along the bottom of the pants. Finish the side seams and you are done.
**Tip** Use a scrap piece of ribbon as a tag to mark the back of your pants. This is especially helpful when sewing for children so that they can quickly tell the front from the back.TooltipText
