Last summer I found 4 yards of this candy cane stripe fabric at a yarn store in IL for like 5 bucks. I was immediately inspired to make Christmas Jammies for my girls. I wanted to make gowns, but it was only enough to make pants. I used a pattern for the bigs and made up my own (with Carrie’s help, duh) for the mini.
I then embellished long-sleeved tee’s I got on old navy for around $2-, but still couldn’t find a tee for pickle. When Lolly ripped her pair of red cozy pants, I decided to make one! WHAT?
I used this tutorial from MADE and the t shirt from Courtney’s homecoming (torn apart…sorry everyone who might be mad at that) to make a pattern. This tee looks so intimidating because of the overlapping flaps-but it’s seriously so easy! When I started lining up my pattern I realized that the pants had stripes, so I centered them on the front, back and sleeves and used the waistband for my cuffs so that I didn’t have to hem any part of it!
I haven’t finished adding the trim and buttons to the pintucked(!) bib, but here it is!
The Bigs’ are all finished. See below:
When I was growing up, the tradition was to open Christmas PJ’s on Christmas Eve. Now that I am the Mom, I have decided getting Christmas PJ’s right after Thanksgiving is the thing to do, so that we can enjoy them the entire month! I finished them in the NICK of time.
