Sleepover PJ's for All!

 There is nothing like homemade pj's for the Christmas holiday season! So I had to make my kiddos some and have them done before their Polar Express day at school. I have had these pajamas cut out for some time now and just now did I finish some of them up. Well I still have four cut out waiting to sewn up....
 All five pairs are the Oliver + S Sleepover pajama pattern. I love this pattern and they seem to sew up quicker with every pair that I make. They are a big hit with the kids too. This can be hard to do some times. ;) They all wore them to Polar Express day at school. Hubby and I always take the younger ones to this at school. It wouldn't be Christmas without it. :)
 The boys' are made with the Sarah Jane Children at Play flannel fabric. I LOVE this fabric line! It's so soft and warm. I would love a pair for myself too. Sweet pea is made out of bits of fabric that I had around the house. My grandma sent the pink lambs flannel a few years back when she was born but I never could bring myself to use it. You see it is the very same fabric that is used on the back of the quilt that my grandma made her when she was born, very special fabric. Then someone gave me this plaid flannel in the same colors as the lambs so it was a perfect fit for these pj's. There was nothing left over at all! Not bad if I say so myself. :) I also used a shiny metallic rick rack on them her to give it a bit fun.
 I was lucky though that G wanted to wear his Ninjogo costume to school. I made them in flannel so they could be pj's after halloween. He loves this idea. He was happy to "show" these off to his  friends too.
 I think that there is nothing better than making pj's for this bunch. I think they are all happy with them too.
Happy Sewing and Merry Christmas!!


  1. Hi Sharon..a very merry Christmas to you and the family! I think your pj's are all gorgeous, I'm glad you got the idea to use that sweet lamb fabric too, it looks great with the plaid. Everybody looks so cosy and warm!

    1. Thank you! The kids really love these, I have to wash them and pull them out to give to the kids to wear again. I am thinking that they all need another pair finished up for Christmas morning as a gift from mama.

  2. Beautiful pjs! Great pattern. Merry christmas and happy holiday to you!

    1. Thanks! It really is a great patern to have. I can say I have already got lots of use out of it. :)
