Sorry I’ve been so MIA this week!! I had the whole week planned out and posts were going to be scheduled and organized aaaand, as you can tell, that did NOT happen!! I have been SO tired and busy this week that I was lucky to get ANYTHING at all done. Especially housework, not to mention all the crafts I had planned for the week. I miss my non busy/holiday schedule. I LOVE this time of year, but it just goes by WAY too fast!!
Anyway, I thought that I would post up a simple project today. It is literally the EASIEST sewing you’ll ever do in your life!! I have a few different pins on pj pants, but the only file I found on my computer was from Sew Can She. I wanted to link to her post, but I can’t seem to find it. SORRY! So, I’ll send her an email asking about it and update this post later if she gives me the link.
In the mean time, you can check out the other two pajama links on my sewing board on pinterest HERE and HERE (on the last link, I keep getting a 523 error so that one might not be available anymore. Sorry!).
Basically all you do is cut out the pattern, sew crotch sides together, fold it flat and sew the legs together, then hem the bottom and top and add elastic. Easy peasy!
I made 2 size 7’s and 1 size 3. I’m so excited for them to open them up on Christmas Eve!
They took a total of about 4 hours to make, probably less, but that was only because I kept getting interrupted AND I was really tired! 😛 It really shouldn’t take that long to sew up one pair of these. Maybe about an hour at the most, 30 minutes if you’re really fast at sewing, unlike me.
Our Christmas Eve tradition for the last 3-4 years has been to open up one present and that present is always Christmas pj’s. Even my husband and I buy each other pj’s and wear them to bed that night. The boys LOVE doing this and have never complained about it. I’m sure if we started doing it when they were older it would’ve been harder.
My step sister, Justine, actually gave me the idea. I think she mentioned it when we were all living at home, but we never did it and then one year my husband and I decided it would be fun to start more traditions with our kids during this time of year and this became one of them. I like it because they look forward to what new Christmasy pj’s they’re going to get. They’re always happy and there’s no fighting over toys on Christmas Eve. I don’t really remember how we used to do it. I don’t remember the kids fighting or anything, but I liked the idea of everyone getting the same gift on Christmas Eve.
I’m also making some Christmas pants for my best friends’ kids and I CANNOT wait to give them to her kiddos!! I need to get my butt into gear and sew them up for them this weekend! This holiday is just going by WAY too fast!!
Thanks for stopping by! I have something a little different going on tomorrow some come over to see it! I hope you’re having a great Thursday!
