    Very Happy

    Posted by Laura W. on 2021 Oct 1st

    Okay I really wanted to give this a 4.5 stars but couldn't figure out how. The only reason I would give it a bit less than a 5 is because I felt the sleeves were a little tight. However, that was so easy to adjust. About two inches into my seam as I was sewing down the arm, I switched to a quarter inch seam allowance, and it did the trick. Other than that this pattern is awesome. I really love the detailed instructions and tips and tricks. I have not worked too much with fleece before, and this made it a breeze! Very happy with the product, and my son LOVES it.

    Fantastic!

    This pattern is SO fantastic! I immediately made one for each of my three little kids, and they wear them so much. I added appliques to them. I'm looking forward to maybe hacking pockets, zippers, and such onto them.

    This is a GREAT pattern for anyone - whether you’re experienced at sewing, or just venturing into clothing for the first time. Working with fleece is low stress and easy to do, while the pattern provides lots of tips and easy to follow instructions. And bonus, my kids love their new jammies!

    Love the look

    Love the look of the pjs!

Banff was the first National Park to be established in Canada, and is located in the Rocky Mountains.  The area now known worldwide as Banff, was home to a number of First Nations peoples for traditional land uses.  Promoted first as a tourist destination for European settlers before shifting toward conservation and protection, Banff has a complicated history, and the process of reconciliation is ongoing.

 

The scenery is dominated by mountain peaks and turquoise glacier lakes.  Anyone hiking on the kilometers of trails should be watching for grizzly bears, cougars, timber wolves, moose, and bighorn sheep.
