On October 30, 2010, I posted this regarding my favorite pajamas. I was planning to throw them in the rag bag. But guess what I did? I sewed them up, patched the rip on the leg, sewed a couple of new seams along the top so the drawstring would still stay in the casing, and I have been wearing them ever since. Last week I needed to patch the leg again, and while doing so I put my finger through the fabric.....it was that thin. And I still hated to give them up. They have served me well for,,,,what,,,,12 years? 15 years? In fact I wore them again last night. And put my finger through the fabric on the other leg. It's time folks. It's time they get thrown in the rag bag..
I had to go into town today for a hair cut appointment, but before I left I found my pattern, I found some fabric I could spare out of my quilting stash, and I decided I would make a new pair of comfy cotton pajama bottoms when I returned from town. After my haircut I decided to check out the sales at a nice department store at the mall.....way at the far end of the mall so I could just go into the door, check the sales, and go back out the door without having to walk the length of the mall. I don't like malls. I saw a huge sign, 70% off it claimed. It was in the fancy pajama department, so I was curious to see what they had. I found wonderful cotton pajama bottoms! Original price was $40 and above. Sale, plus 70% off sale price, was $8.00! I went home with three pairs in a bag. The fabric I had chosen to make my pajamas out of was about $14, so it was really a good deal. Saved me my fabric and my time!
And I went home and found some T shirts that had seen better days but were too good to throw in the rag bag, and I matched them up with my new jammie bottoms, and I now have 3 new pairs of pajamas. Yay me!
I am almost thinking I should have a special ceremony tonight as I throw the old jammies in the rag bag. They have been my faithful friend for a long, long time. We've slept together for many years! But I am dumping them. Yup. Tonight.
