Everything's Better in 3-D

When Cindy brought home 3-D fabric from the shop a few months ago I thought it was really neat but I just wasn’t inspired.   Fast forward to a few weeks ago, I was standing in the shop staring at it and it hit me… pajama pants!  What kid wouldn’t want 3-D pajama pants? 
That evening Linus and I went over to my cousin’s house where I shared with her my “Coming At You in 3-D” by Hoffman California International Fabrics.  While we ooed and awed over my fabric finds, her geeky engineer husband debated how the 3-D fabric was made and then he came up with the most brilliant idea.  These aren’t just pajama pants they are “3-D MOVIE NIGHT PANTS!”

Taking his job pretty seriously!

Now we just finished our basement and I’m thinking when these pants come back from the shop we’ll have to rent a 3-D movie just for the occasion.  I used the Basic Kids Pants Tutorial from made by Dana.  If you’ve never been on this site her tutorials are wonderful and she’s great at showing you how to make your own patterns. 

These pants were so fast and easy!  I'm completely hooked! I'm hoping to get a pair of flat front shorts made for Linus out of one of Adam's old plaid shirts. 

Ok just one more picture!

"Finally, I get the remote."
If you haven't seen the 3-D Fabric you really do need to check it out yourself. Besides spaceships and planets, there is also dinosaurs, fish, and flowers with honeybees.
