All I want for Christmas are….
I love when I look through Christmas catalogs and they have matching pajamas for the whole family. The only downfall is the price…ouch! They are usually more than I am willing to spend – up to $70 for one person?…that adds up quickly when buying for a family.
So, I decided to make family PJs for this holiday season. I used three coordinating fabrics so they all work together.
|Mine are on the far right if you couldn’t figure that out 🙂
Eliana’s are extra special because they are extra warm. I lined them with a coordinating green polka dot fleece.
I also love the bow on the waistband – the ribbon is of course permanently in a bow for safety reasons. We don’t want Eliana strangling herself in the middle of the night. It is glued in place – believe me it is not budging – I really pulled on it.
|I took the picture before I “hemmed”/finished the edges of the ribbon – the finished product has a clean edge on the end of the ribbon.|
For our tops I wan’t as creative. I found a short sleeve shirt for Jonathan and I that worked/matched our bottoms at Target. I actually think mine is really cute – it has two reindeer on the front with rhinestone noses.
Eliana’s top was a green onesie that I embellished with a Christmas tree from the fabric used for my PJ pants. I tried to bring both of Jonathan and my pants into Eliana’s PJs. So, her bottom half matches Jonathan’s PJ pants (mostly because I think smaller prints look best on the children’s clothes I make) and her top has part of my PJs in it.
Now I just need a picture of us all wearing them! I’ll have to get someone to take one of us.
