When I look at these cute Christmas pajamas, they just bring a big smile to my face and these words pop into my head "the children were nestled all snug in their bed" (from the Twas the Night Before Christmas). I decided to start a tradition of making Christmas pajamas for the little people (aka grands) in my life.
First we need to talk about this fabric, Girl Charlee's Fair Isle Deer Heart knit, which I think is the perfect Christmas fabric and the solid red knit for the bands is from Girl Charlee, too.
I used KS 2919 for the sleeper pattern, sewing a size Small, which is 0 to 3 months. This pattern is perfectly drafted and I appreciate Kwik Sew's thorough instructions. Not to mention, they are so easy to follow. I interfaced both sides of the fabric for the zipper and stitched one of the sides. Using my Frixion pen, I made a few marks on the other side of the zipper tape. These marks helped to line up the pattern across the front. My only change to the pattern was to shorten the front tab and I think I could of taken off another 1/4"
Next up was toddler pajamas from the Kwik Sew: Sewing for Toddlers book. I keep using the same size just adding a bit of length. These pajamas are so quick to sew and turn out just darling.

And the pants
I think they are so cute, I have to show the two of them one more time!
I made these two pajamas for Christmas and one other gift item so my Christmas sewing list was short. This will be my only sewing post this week as I plan to enjoy some vacation time and lots of family time.
I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.
