Stitch your own supervillain pyjamas!
I'd been on the hunt for a cute pair of pyjamas for ages but all the cool style, like superhero and dinosaurs were made for children and I was sad I couldn't find any in my size. That's when I was struck by the idea to make my own superhero, or should I say supervillain pyjamas! My favourite comic book character is Harley Quinn, so I had to order two colours of onesie for this project and stitch them together. Which superhero would you like to be at bedtime?

    Buy two identical onesies. One in red and one in black.

    Step 7

    I'm terrible at explaining these parts - fold the black top down, so that it's bottom edge is inline with the top of the red leg and pin the front and back edges together. The two chalk lines you marked earlier should be nicely lined up.

    Sew along the chalk line to attach the top to the bottom. Then sew the front edge to the zip, the back edge to the red onesie and the top to the hood.

    Now we're going to make the collar by laying a piece of white paper over the neck of your onesie and tracing the neckline. Draw four scalloped points similar to ones that Harley has.

I love this! I've been wanting a onesie for ages but all of the really kool ones are expensive. Harley is one of my favourite Batman characters. I'm definitely going to try this.
