Hi Friends!

It's week two of the Sew Family Jammies blog tour, and I'm excited to be sharing the matching sets I made for my kiddos!

Sew Family Jammies // Sibling Pajamas

Sew Family Jammies is a fun new event, hosted by Sew Altered Style. You can keep up with the blog tour and the fun jammies being sewn on Instagram HERE, as well!

I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with sewing pajamas for my kids each year. I love the ridiculous cuteness of the outcome, but hate adding too much to my plate at this time each year, as I tend to do!

I've only made matching, or coordinating, sets for my kids a couple of times in the past six years. It feels like quite a job, so I haven't done it as often as I probably wished I would have. 😄 Below is a major throwback blog post! I also included an Instagram post from last year's sets. Click on each photo to be taken to the post!

Oh my goodness, my babies!!!!

Dolly got a matching pair last year too!

I "officially" swore off make Christmas/Winter pjs a few years ago; or so I thought. Then last year I got sucked back into it, and same thing this year! So now I'm just rolling with it and admitting defeat to being able to resist, lol.

This year however, I have truly, truly, LOVED making them their matching sets! It can definitely be attributed to finding a really great, simple and FAST pattern for their pj pants! I also kept things super easy by BUYING a plain t-shirt to embellish with the scraps!

Are you ready for this?? The pattern is available for FREE, y'all! It is the Pajama Party Pants by Peekaboo Patterns, and is available at no cost to newsletter subscribers. How great is that!? The pattern ranges in sizes 3mo - 12 years, so you really can sew pjs for all the kids!

To be honest, I'm always a bit leery of free pajama pants patterns, but I have to say, I think the fit of these is pretty great! It's definitely on the generous side, but I completely am on board with that, because they grow out of them so darn fast!

My oldest is in a size 12, sadly, so I'll have to figure out something else next year! My other two are in the sizes they fit into best, based on their measurements, and they are pretty true to RTW sizing, so if you are making pajamas for children "not" in your household, you should be pretty close by sewing their corresponding RTW size.

Speaking of sewing for other children. Not pictured, because the models were not available, are 3 other sets of pjs I've made for cousins and a friend! I'm not done sewing for this event yet either. 😉 I was really unsure how much fabric I needed to buy and WAY overbought, so my husband will also be a recipient of pj pants this year!

In this "pose" they are mimicking the animals they chose for their shirts! :)

And now; speaking of fabric and matching pants... The fabric I used for the pajamas is from JOANN, and completely picked out by my kids. I was super brave and took them all three to the store with me and let them peruse all the Christmasy fabrics! It took a while, and of course I had to guide their decision making based on available yardage of certain fabrics, but in the end they chose this buffalo plaid. The reason being that I already have a very similar pair that was purchased last year and they wanted to match me! (Cue the heart bursting)

I haven't told you the whole story between my pants yet either. Last year, all of my sisters, my mom, and myself, bought matching pajamas, so this year, we will have quite the matching party on Christmas morning!! Lol.

It will be all of us, plus the five grandchildren. And my husband if he feels like joining in on the crazy matching party. Should be fun, yes!??? 😁

Keeping things simple is the way to go for me, but I hope that I will be able to keep making their Christmas PJ dreams come true in the years to come. 😊

I wanted to quickly mention the appliques on the kids' t-shirts. I made them the old fashioned way by searching Google for free image files; printed them out; traced to wonder-under and then fused and appliqued on to the tees. I made an IGTV all about this process that you can view HERE. I used a different fusible product in the video, but the process is the same!

A little tedious, but it really didn't take that long! In fact, I was able to sew all three of these pajama sets in only a few hours after the cutting was done. Such a quick and fun project!


Fabric: Super Snuggle Buffalo Check Flannel - JOANN
**PS, This fabric is currently on MEGA-SALE! It's really easy to sew, the plaids matched up so quickly and easily! I didn't even need to use pins!** ONLY through TODAY 12/10/19

Wonder-Under: JOANN

Pattern: Pajama Party Pants (available for free to newsletter or facebook group subscribers!)
