Kids give pajamas 'nod' at 4-H exhibit Judy Cleary, Jewell County 4-H Club member, exhibited a pair of flan- nel pajamas at the Kansas State Fair. Her entry added to the appearance of a pajama party, formed by the exhibit,. Judy's entry earned a purple rib- bon. The pajamas were exhibited at the Jewell Corn Show. "Pajamas are a good starter project for beginning home sewers," said Eleanor Blomquist, iongtime 4-H cloth- ing construction judge from Saline County who also judged at the Kansas State Fair this year. "The designs are simple, there are few pattern pieces and much of the sewing is straight seams," she said. The fact that fit is not critical with pajamas also can speed the sewing process and the simpler sewing projects such as pajamas do not require high- tech sewing machines. An older ma- chine with a good straight stitch and zigzag can be used to create a durable garment that will withstand many washings.
