Christmas Pyjamas

We're going to start a new Christmas tradition this year and I've been busy sewing for it!



Last year, I came across the ideas of Christmas pyjamas. A pair of child's pyjamas that are wrapped up under the tree and handed over on Christmas Eve.

It seemed like such a great idea, I could just see our little family sitting round the Christmas tree on Christmas Eve, perhaps eating some yummy snacks with the children in their pyjamas while we read Christmas stories and sing Christmas carols.



These are the pyjamas that I made for Rascal. The pyjama shorts were based on a largish pair of shorts that Rascal owns. The t-shirt was $4 from K-mart and I have added a few random appliqué butterflies.

Quick, pretty and very very easy... I might have to make some more!

  6. Yay - I have such happy memories of the Christmas Eve pajamas tradition from when I was a child (in fact, I still buy myself pjs for Christmas Eve as an adult!) - it's one of my favourite traditions. So cool that you are sewing them too :)

  11. Love the PJs, and particularly the applique! Santa always seems to bring new pyjamas when he's filling the stockings in our house, although I think I like the hand-made tradition better!

  17. AWESOME! I was going to do that for all the kids this year (nieces and nephews too...) but morning sickness canned that thought. I love the ones you did for Rascal, complete with the little cuff at the bottom. Really Sweet! :)
