Today is the fourth installment of our Night Before Christmas Series. That means we are half way through... so I figured I might tell you a little about some of the prizes that are going to be available at the end of the series. First, there is a copy of the book: The Night Before Christmas!!! Even if you already have this in your collection, it makes wonderful gift. There are also gong to be quite a few patterns given away.... which ones you ask??? Well, it is too early to give out ALL of the information on the prizes ;o)
and the Classic Footed Pajamas by our affiliate Peek A Boo Patterns....
I love the ones in the American doll catalog but I figured I could make some myself, too. My daughter got her doll just a few months ago. I was going to save the doll until Christmas but I gave it to her early. I don't regret it. I have been having too much fun sewing matching clothes.
For this set, I used the pattern Sleeping Bunnies by Ellie Inspired for both the doll and the child pattern. The pattern is a quick sew and easy for beginners. My daughter loved the softness of the knit. I used a four way stretch knit that I found at Joanns and white ribbing for the neck. There is elastic used at the wrists which my five year old liked for washing her hands. She said she pushed the sleeves up and they stayed up, which made her happy.
The pjs would look great appliqued or with a ruffle on the bottom. I will be making more of these for my daughter and her dolls bedtime wardrobe. I love the
simplicity and comfort of these pajamas.
