If you know me in real life, you probably know that I love to dress my kids seasonally. Those My First Thanksgiving outfits? Love them. Valentine’s Day T-shirts? Can’t get enough. Wear green on St. Patrick’s Day? Absolutely. I also love making my boys Christmas jammies. But this year, I decided to go un-traditional and just make…. regular everyday cute-as-can-be jammies.
The Fabric Fairy graciously offered us some fabric for our Handmade Gifts for Boys series, and I fell in love with her knit fabrics. I had such a hard time choosing, because the designs were all fantastic. I finally settled on these two prints, and when they arrived I knew I had made the right choice.
The feel of these fabrics is amazing. I totally wish these jammies were my size, because they feel so cozy!
The pattern is the Lil’ Long Johns from Peek-a-boo Patterns [affiliate link], and oh my word is it super adorable. I’ve made them before in Christmas colors, and seriously, I really think these cannot get any cuter. I had only made them in baby/toddler sizes before, so this time I tried them out on my four-year-old, and yep, still adorable. Also, he didn’t want to take them off.
Even though the pajamas aren’t matching or coordinating colors, since they’re the same pattern, they have that great Christmas morning feel to them. Can we say Christmas card? After taking these pictures, I’m kicking myself for not having time to sew them for all the boys yet. [but really, can we just pause for a moment and thank the baby for napping well so that I could even sew these??]
Friends, what is better than brothers in sorta matchy jammies? Nothing, I tell you.
