Christmas PJs

I, of course, had grand plans for making at least two pairs of pj bottoms for each nephew, a pair for my grandson and two or three nightgowns for my niece and granddaughter.  In actuality this is what came out of my sewing machine...

Purchased t-shirt with bow (made by me)
PJs from Coca-Cola Flannel purchased years ago
For my niece...

Knit pj bottoms 

Purchased tank top for my grandson
Gray flannel knit pj bottoms

...like I said I just don't seem to sew well for anyone but myself! *LOL*  The good thing is that I have plenty of flannel left and my niece will start sewing lessons soon so I will teach her how to make a nightgown for herself!

Since my sisters and brothers have mates and two of my children also are similarly paired off...we have our Christmas festivities on Christmas Eve so that they can visit the other side of their families on Christmas Day.  A few pictures of our Christmas Eve celebration...

My sister has a Christmas Day Brunch so I was home shortly before 3pm which actually worked for me since I work the days after Christmas and am off the first week of January...my winter sewcation this year.

It was nice to have an afternoon to rest before heading back to work!  To all of you that aren't working this week, enjoy!  I will of course be back with more sewing adventures and a year end wrap up later this week.

...as always more later!

  16. Looks like you had a wonderful Christmas. The pj's look wonderful! One pair each is quite enough - they can only wear one pair at a time anyway, right?
