In the past few days I have been making some pajama pants!
Its really easy!
First I used my old pjs as a pattern to trace around the front and back on a piece of news paper, then cut them out!
The next steps got kinda tricky as I had to match up my fabric as it has different coloured lines of hearts on it so when sewed together it looked like the lines keep going.
Then i cut out the legs on the material using the news paper pattern as a template.
Next i sewed the crutch and inside legs of both legs together.
Now at this stage it didn't look like pants at all but it gets there.
Then i sewed up the sides, now thats more like it!
I haven't done anything else yet but I'm getting there!
I'll let you know when I'm finished them.

About a week ago, my class and I came up with a rugby chant for a competition called:
Chant for you champions!
This competition was run by the heart foundation.
What you had to do was...
- come up with a chant, song, rap, haka, anything. And it had to support you local rugby team and promote healthy breakfasts, so it had to include the line "breakfast eaters have more fuel for sport and school"
- Next you had to video it and post it youtube
- The school with the most creative, most viewed and best chant could win $1000 dollars for their school + a free breakfast and their chant showing on What Now!
Our chant was supporting our local club "Rangers"
Unfortunately we didn't win.
But it was lots of fun and i had a great time organizing it.
So well done to everyone who entered.
If you want to watch it,
go to youtube and its under mahana, or the Mahana face book has a link!
