I’m so excited to share with you the Christmas Pajamas I made my kiddos this year! Now before you get worried about the fact that little Birdie is not in this photo – here is a photo of her playing with some of her Christmas presents :) As much as I would love a photo of all three kids together in their PJ’s, Birdie is 3 and I didn’t want to force her.

I have been working on a quilt for my Mom using some quilt blocks that my Ouma made before she passed. Originally I wanted to back the quilt with this gorgeous Liberty of London print. But sadly when it came time to do so I realised that this print was simply too bright for the very monotone colour palette of the quilt.

Happily Bunny saw the Liberty print and fell in love with it and asked if I was making something for her. So that made the decision of what fabric to make the girls Christmas pajamas with very easy!! The girls tops are made using the Mini Eucalypt sewing pattern, and their shorts are a kids shorts pattern I’ve been working on for some time and haven’t yet released.

Whilst I was making a cute baby kit for my new little nephew, Buddy saw the leftover Cotton & Steele Whale print and decided it was the best thing he’d ever seen. So that very neatly answered the question of what fabric to make his Christmas pajamas out of! He was so excited when he realised that his pajamas matched his cousin.

The tee pattern is my favourite vintage pattern for Buddy Simplicity 5591 which I have used a lot to make him sweatsuits. The shorts are the same basic kids shorts pattern I used for the girls and hope to release some day.

I really loved making my kids special Christmas pajamas and it’s so lovely to see them enjoying them!
