With all the problems that come with being a blogger kid, there’s a definite perk when your mom wants cute pajama pictures – jumping on the bed! Read more about Teresa’s kids’ fun time…
I’m so funny and think every year that I can add a few more things to my to do list around the holidays, one being sewing cute pajamas for my kids. Ha….in my 11 years as a mom, sewing cute Christmas pajamas has not happened, not even once.
This is the year, though, that I have come the closest to accomplishing my cute Christmas pajama goal. The pattern was all cut out and piled nice and neat by my sewing machine weeks before Christmas, but there it sat as I baked cookies, wrapped presents, and filled my time with lots of other holiday prep! Sometimes it’s best to just admit defeat and realize you can’t do it all!
This year, I’m thinking that I should start holiday sewing in September. That way things would actually get done, right!
Well, these jammies are the Lazy Day Pajamas from the Blank Slate Pattern Shop. Ever since I made myself some rayon challis pajamas, I’ve been promising the kids that I would make them some cute pajamas too. My girl, especially, has been asking for some rayon pajama pants. Her pajamas are made with some rayon challis from a local fabric shop. Little Man’s pants are made with the cutest Robert Kaufman mustache quilting fabric and some Jo Ann black and gray fabric for the bottom accents. I used white piping to separate the two fabrics.
The pattern came together really easily and was truly a quick sew! Little Man is a size 8, in every way and the pajama pants fit perfectly with no alterations. My girl has sadly outgrown the Blank Slate Pattern’s kids sizes. Melissa has a great tutorial on how to grade up a pattern, so that is exactly what I did and graded up the pants from a size 8 to a size 10. It worked great!
The kids were so excited to be able to jump on the bed for these photos! (Jumping on the bed is usually only reserved for hotel rooms!) There were many moments taking these photos I was worried they would knock each other down while I was snapping away! Thankfully, we all came out on the other side of these photos with nothing but cute smiles and lots of giggles!
