MG and BK got their Christmas Eve PJs Friday morning so they could wear them to Pajama Day at school.

Bedtime Story PJs

Size 5 with a little added length
Jo-ann Fabrics flannel

Instead of ties on the inside I did a button and elastic loop.  It worked perfectly for a full 24 hours of pajama wearing.
open wide pouches
Open Wide Pouches using the tutorial from Noodlehead.  These were teacher gifts and we put a ziploc bag of peppermint bark inside.  The gift tags were made from old Christmas cards.
Playdate Dress
Oliver + S Playdate Dress
Size 5 (7 length)
longer sleeves
binding instead of hem on sleeves
Fabric is Amy Butler "Love Memento" in Burgundy
Playdate Dress
The week that MG was sick really threw a wrench in my plans.  But that's okay!:)  The other dresses and P's shirt can wait until the New Year. 
All that's left on my new revised list is:
  • PJ bottoms for K and P (already cut out, just need to be sewn)
  • Felt Christmas ornaments for the kids
  • Guitar strap for K
  • Tote Bag for my mom
I'm going to finish those last few things tonight and/or tomorrow morning and then enjoy the week with my family.
Wishing you and yours a Merry Christmas!

  10. I love your "LOVE" dress!! And the button adaptation is great! Merry Christmas!

  11. Wow!
    Very impressive! I didn't get much accomplished around here (school break and a full-time job really get me this time), but at least I tried!
    The pjs are really adorable, but my heart bellongs to the playdate dress - it's so beautiful!
    Merry Christmas to you all :)
