Chances are good that wherever you happen to be, the weather is changing–especially at night. The boxers and tank you were wearing to bed a few weeks ago suddenly aren’t quite cozy enough. Your child’s closet is full of his back-to-school clothes, but his dresser still holds last year’s too-short, too-stained jammies.  Whatever your situation, new pajamas are a great way to settle into the season.  We think homemade pjs are even better, which is why we’re hosting a Pajama Party sew-along throughout the month of September.

If you want to play, it’s simple.  Make some pajamas and share your experience.  You can do any of the following:

  • Go to the forum and discuss your pattern.  Ask questions, post your photos and see what everyone else is up to.
  • Share photos with our general photo pool on Flickr.
  • Blog about it.  At the end of the month we’ll ask everyone for a link to their posts.
  • Grab the Pajama Party button on this page and post it on your blog.  Link back to this post and encourage others to participate.  The more the merrier!

If you need a little incentive, we have a coupon for 15% off all the pajama patterns in the SMS shop.  (You don’t have to use one of these patterns to participate though.)  There are options for adults and children, boys and girls, gowns and pants–something for everyone!  Use the code PAJAMAPARTY09  when you checkout.  (Expires 9/30.  Cannot be combined with other offers or applied to previous orders.)

To top it off, we’re going to select our four favorite Pajama Party photos and award each of the winners a $20 gift certificate to the SMS shop!

If you’re in, let us know in the comments.  Ready? Set? Sew!
