Hi, I am Erica and every year for Christmas I make my three children pajama pants. However, this year I am starting a new tradition with my daughter. I made her and her American doll Cecile matching pajamas.

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.




Hello and happy almost holiday season to you from Melissa VerHulst at Three Dutch Divas! 
Im  here to tell you all about the adorable Classic Footed Pajama pattern By: Peek-a-Boo Pattern Shop!

I know most of you are planning on making your little ones adorable and festive holiday jammies. If you're anything like me, your still in the planning stage because there is always time to sew it up the night before, Right :) I am lucky enough that I was asked to sew up a pair of these adorable footed jammies to show all of you, so I am ahead of my normal game! Although even if you are a last minute Lucy, you could pull these off too! This was a super fast and easy sew. It took me longer to pick out my fabrics and get over my fear of that big ol' zipper than it did to actually whip these up!!!

and the results are fabulous, if I do say so myself!!

My little doll LOVED that these were so soft and cozy and I love that they were so easy to make. You have the option of using a half zipper or a full zipper. I chose the half zip on these and it worked out very well! Once I printed the pattern I was delighted to see a copy of the cutting chart ON the pattern piece. It was nice to have it right there to refer to once I sat down to cut out the pattern.

 The instructions were so well written and straight forward that after I read through it once I was able to do all if the main construction on my own. I only had to refer back to it again on a few key parts to be sure of correct placement. I admit when I saw these I was a bit intimidated, however they were super easy to make! These would be super cute for christmas morning, matching siblings or as a baby gift since they come in a HUGE variety of sizes ranging from Newborn - 10/12.

Have a happy and safe holiday season and be sure to put these on your must have PJ Pattern list and don't forget Peek-a-Boo Patterns offers tiered pricing on her patterns in her shop.
