Every year we give our kids Christmas PJs on Christmas Eve. It's such a fun little tradition that we all look forward to every year. I go back and forth each year whether to sew the PJs or buy them. This year I asked the kids which they would prefer-- of course they said they wanted me to sew them.
In an effort to simplify I decided to do one fabric for all of the kids. I could barely squeeze these five PJs out of the four yards, but I did it, with a little creative cutting!
For the big kids I sewed up one of my all-time favorite (free) patterns, the Oliver + S's Sunny Day Shorts-- extended to pants length. For baby I sewed up the Lullaby Layette pants in size 12 months. They each fit perfectly!
I was going to applique something cute on the shirts, but in typical Christmas season sewing fashion--- I ran out of time. But they loved the PJs and were non-the wiser.
The kids really love matching! And this minky fabric is so soft, the kids love it!
Merry Christmas Eve, little sweeties!!
