Winter PJ's

Last month I got this super cute flannelette fabric from Wholeport.

only $10.99/metre in the Fabric section
I got two metres so that I could make my niece and nephew a pair of matching pj's for Christmas....because we all know how much kids love to open a pair of pj's for Christmas!  Especially matching ones!

I mad the pj pants lickety split.  And then I got a couple of plain white t-shirts and used my Silhouette machine to create a pattern for appliques for the tops.


I didn't even bother trying to cut the fabric with my Silhouette.  I need a new knife before I try anything crazy like that (hear that Santa?  A new knife for my Silhouette machine would be the perfect gift!)

Then I just used my templates to cut the shapes from my fabric.


Then I also cut some Silhouette heat transfer fabric interfacing so that it would stick to my T-shirts while I was trying to sew it on.  It was a bit of extra work but it worked like a charm.


I'm going to add a mug with some hot chocolate mix in it to make this gift a bit more kid friendly (They're also getting a proper full on toy and a book from me too, this is just the handmade portion of their gift.  I can't have you thinking I'm the weird auntie in the family).


I love how soft and fluffy this fabric got after I washed it.  It kept is grainline well and sewed easily.  Check out Wholeport's flanelette section for more great prints.

Are you making pjs for gifts this year?  What kind of fabric and style are you using?  Leave a comment below~

I love these! They came out great. I was hoping to make some this year for gifts, but looks like it'll have to wait until next year. :) I love your idea of how you did the matching shirts -- so much simpler than sewing a second item, but just as cute!
